Paperback. US reprint. With an Afterword by Frank Serpico. The New York policeman who thought that there ought to be a distinction between cops and robbers and had the courage of his convictions. On the night of February 3, 1971 Patrolman Frank Serpico was shot in the head while on a supposedly routine narcotics raid. As he lay in hospital, clinging desperately to life, the top brass of the NYC Police Dept. and high officials at city hall trembled to know whether he would live or die, asking themselves and each other if he had been shot by a half-crazed dope-pusher, or if he had been set-up by other police officers. For nearly 5yrs. Serpico had fought a lonely battle against police corruption. 402pp. mass market p/back. V.v. lightly browned pp., signs of b/plate removal inside fr. cover o/w Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
