Annotation "Marked Man tells the propulsive story of Frank Serpico who, in the 1960s, single-handedly rooted out systematic corruption in the New York Police Department. Since the NYPD was formed in 1845, the famous "pad" was as much a criminal ring as it was a legitimate police force. As the decades wore on, corruption became so out of hand that cops were regularly demanding payments from brothels, bars, pool halls, and gambling joints to keep them out of trouble with the law. It was a multimillion-dollar-a-year business that everyone seemed to turn a blind eye to. Everyone, that is, except Frank Serpico. Delve into this true story of corruption and greed, of the dark history of the largest police department in the US, and the price one man pays for doing what he thinks is right. Perfect for fans of Steve Sheinkin and Rebecca Barone, Marked Man is a dive into one man's courageous fight against a corrupt system."-- Provided by publisher. -- Strong language and some violence.
