Description
"A page-turning novel about the inner workings of the NYPD, based on the true story of a young policewoman's decades-long fight for respect in the male-dominated world. The Bronx, 1958. The Policewomen's Bureau isn't respected within the Department, even as it handles those cases only a woman's touch could solve. Marie Cirile, a young officer with the 44th Precinct, has joined the few women stepping away from the select matronly duties available to female officers to take up series cases. With courage and a stiff upper lip when undercover, Marie is dispatched to grim and scary situations, using her air of innocence and others' prejudice against her to take down degenerates and sex offenders. Despite the violence of her job, the sexism she faces daily, and a rocky marriage waiting for her at home, Marie is determined to make a name for herself within the NYPD and be the role model her young daughter deserves. With the support of the real Marie Cirile, author Ed Conlon combines the true events that filled her memoir with his author's flair and experience as a retired NYPD detective to create an exciting story, worthy of the best silver screen police movies"--
