Summary
All Denny Malone wants is to be a good cop. Malone and his crew are an elite NYPD special unit given carte blanche to fight gangs, drugs and guns. Every day and every night for eighteen years, Malone has served on the front lines, witnessing the hurt, the dead, the victims, the perps. He's done whatever it takes to serve and protect in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean-including Malone himself. What only a few know is that Denny Malone is dirty. Now he's caught in a trap and being squeezed by the Feds, and he must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the Job, his family, and the woman he loves, trying to survive, body and soul, while the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all. Based on years of research inside the NYPD, The Force is a searing portrait of a city on the brink and of a courageous, heroic, and deeply flawed man who stands at the edge of its abyss
Summary
Denny Malone is a highly decorated NYPD detective at the head of an elite anti-gang task force -- he's also a dirty cop who skims cash and drugs, and worse. Tracing Denny's rise and fall and his attempts to avoid federal jail time, The Force showcases authentic dialogue and shockingly believable characters in a taut, gritty book. -- Description by Dawn Towery
