Hardback. She presided over some of America's most complex and violent cases, ranging from narcotics to sex crimes to headline-making murder and mob trials. Her toughness in court is legendary and she is known for frequently imposing maximum sentences (120 years each for 5 young drug lords). As a result, she must have round-the-clock security due to the repeated death threats from the criminals she has put behind bars. Now Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Leslie Crocker Snyder offers a gripping and provocative account of her unparalleled career, including nearly 20yrs on the bench - and takes readers behind the scenes and into a courtroom whose trials and rulings have placed a permanent stamp on the US legal system. Spearheading the establishment of the first sex-crimes prosecution division in the country, the author rose through the ranks, overseeing headline-grabbing rape and assault cases and coming down hard on drug gangs and murderers. By the time she was ready for the bench, the author had visited horrific crime scenes, stared down vicious killers, and earned the respect of her peers and the police. With Epilogue. 338pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in F. dw.
