Against the backdrop of the 1995 merger of the NYC Transit and Housing Police Departments into the New York City Police Department, this is the story of a transit police lieutenant who abruptly finds himself performing a job no cop wants to do—namely, investigating other cops. Complicating the situation is the fact that the lieutenant has no prior investigative experience but is thrust into command of a squad of seasoned NYPD investigators. The Lieutenant must deftly walk a tightrope of managing his squad while learning how to perform the wide range of investigations conducted by the Internal Affairs Bureau.

Five Star Review on Amazon By td

An insightful, humorous, and oftentimes poignant reflection on an amazing career. Bryan provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the misunderstood world of IAB. Bad people do bad things, and bad cops do worse. Having taken the oath to serve and protect, when a cop goes bad, it hurts everybody. Bryan offers no opinions or judgements about right or wrong, he just renders a colorful, witty commentary about the bad decisions that some people make in a style that is thoroughly entertaining and hard to put down. His observations are presented as if he were someone watching these cases (and his life) unfold before his very own eyes, in the genre of Voltaire or Tolstoy: truly an enlightening perspective. If you want the inside scoop from a good guy who finds himself unwittingly transferred to the bureau, trying to do the right thing and survive, read this.
