    One thought on “Buddy Boys”

    1. A terrific book about police corruption at the notorious 77th Precinct in New York. Packed full of anecdotes and alternately funny, sad, and terrifying.

    2. A very vivid recollection of the post-Serpico New York Police Department and a few of the cops who were rats to their fellows. Haunting to re-learn just how corrupt things were and daunting to think about how it must be now. People just don't change that much over time.

    3. I really enjoyed this book. McAlary does a great job of painting the corrupt cops as people. I hate corruption so much. I hate the injustices of the judicial system so much. And yet McAlary, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, made me feel, for a short while, that it would be fun to be a "Buddy Boy." We're taken on a fast paced romp through the 77th Precinct in NYC in the 80s where the cops played vigilantes of the ghetto and kept the spoils of war. We shouldn't full condemn the police, nor fully p [...]

    4. McAlary's background as a top crime reporter in New York City shines is what drives this book; in a good and bad way. The positive aspect is that McAlary tells a compelling story of one of the most corrupt police precincts in American history. I work in this field and can assure you that his sources are well-informed and the information on the pages is dead on accurate.The down side of this is that this book at times feels like one long newspaper expose' on police corruption. Often the writing b [...]

    5. Lucky guy was the Nora Ephron play that we liked this year, about Mike McAlary the journalist. This is his book, a work of nonfiction which outlines the police corruption in NYC during the 70s. He is a newspaper reporter and the book itself reads like a good story about cops gone wrong, the blue wall of silence and what happens to those rats who report their buddies. Interesting.

    6. Interesting read. Story about corrupt NYPD cops getting caught and flipping to catch more corrupt cops in the mid 80's.

    7. very interesting it meshes well with what I've heard about New York in the 80s. Based on this book I would recommended 'Point Blank Range- Story of a Jamaican Badman Police.'

    8. #NCOwn in paperback.FS: "Henry Winter lay in bed, dreaming."LS: "Of course not, dear, she said. We know you're not like that."

    9. An interesting story about crooked cops in NYC. Almost made me feel sorry for these "Buddy Boys" especially since two of the central characters later committed suicide.

    10. Good readKept my interest while well written. Good read for anyone looking at a glimpse back in time I would reccomend
