Overview
A candid, gritty, and often poignant look at criminal justice in New York City by a former trial and appellate prosecutor who rose to Chief Assistant District Attorney of Queens County, was a criminal defense lawyer and a Supreme Court Justice. Schwartz provides penetrating insight into the world of serial killers, cop killers, murderers for hire, hero cops, psycho cops, child killers, mafia beatdowns, corrupt politicians, and an imperfect legal system that usually gets it right, but sometimes gets it very wrong. His engaging and personal style makes the criminal justice world he knows so well come alive in this fast-moving, revealing, and exciting memoir.
