The 1960s was a time of social and generational upheaval felt with particular intensity in the melting pot of New York City. A culture of corruption pervaded the New York Police Department, where payoffs, protection, and shakedowns of gambling rackets and drug dealers were common practice. The so-called blue code of silence protected the minority of crooked cops from the sanction of the majority. Into this maelstrom came a working class, Brooklyn-born, Italian cop with long hair, a beard, and a taste for opera and ballet. Frank Serpico was a man who couldn't be silenced -- or bought -- and he refused to go along with the system. He had sworn an oath to uphold the law, even if the perpetrators happened to be other cops. For this unwavering commitment to justice, Serpico nearly paid with his life.… (més)

It was awhile ago. But I remeber liking it. Read it after I saw the movie. ( )

One of my favorite books in high school in the early 70's and I read the book after I saw the movie!

In tracing one man’s career in NYPD, Peter Maas is able to construct an impressive diagram of a large police department’s workings. Or, more specifically, its failings.

The research involved and the effort in organizing that research into a coherent book are staggering. If, along the way, Maas occasionally sees things too simply, it’s forgivable.

Frank Serpico was a rarity: an honest policeman who realized his loyalty should lie with the public he was paid to protect, not with cops who profited from misery. Years of trying to effect changes in-department slowly left the bearded officer from the Village more and more jaded until, finally, four badges walked side-by-side to enact unprecedented public disclosure.

Serpico’s story is a triumph of moral courage, the telling of his story a triumph of journalism. ( )

A great true story about a cop who gets in over his head. Al Pacino plays the guy in the movie Serpico. He's fabulous. ( )

Frank Serpico was a NY cop who not only refused to participate in corruption, but took measures to expose it and root it out, risking his life in the process. This book is a well written account of this man's life and career. ( )

It is a warm September afternoon in New York as I watch Frank Serpico, age thirty-five, the son of a Neapolitan shoe-maker, walk with the help of a cane toward the entrance of a fashionable Manhattan hotel.
