In the early 1970s, the federal government undertook the investigation of the corruption penetrating the entire criminal justice system in New York City, particularly the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) of the Narcotics division of the NYPD.

He was in mortal danger from both sides. In a world where conflicting pressures are excruciating, who should bear the burden of being right when so much of the system is wrong?"
