Summary
A true story of the biggest police corruption scandal in Philadelphia history, a tale of drugs, power, and abuse involving a rogue narcotics squad, a confidential informant, and two veteran journalists whose reporting drove a full-scale FBI probe, rocked the City of Brotherly Love, and earned a Pulitzer Prize
Summary
This gripping true story will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they follow two journalists—both middle-class working mothers—as they form an unlikely bond with a convicted street dealer to expose the dirty cops who are just as corrupt as the criminals they target
