Description
"A page turning story, based on fact, about how it was to be an NYPD cop and a woman several decades ago: frightening, exciting, rewarding, as well as insulting, demoralizing and surreal, all at the same time. Policewoman Marie Carrara is the ultimate survivor."--Joseph Wambaugh From the New York Times Bestselling author of Blue Bloods comes a fast-paced novel about the inner workings of the NYPD, and the early days of women on the force. " It's The Bronx, 1958. The Policewomen's Bureau isn't respected within the Department, even when it handles cases the men can't solve. Marie Carrara is a young police matron who wants to move beyond the grim routine of guarding female prisoners to become one of the few female detectives in the NYPD. Though she is a shy and naive, from a sheltered, immigrant background, Marie dives into the strange and terrifying world of big-city undercover work without hesitation, using her genuine innocence to deceive degenerates and drug dealers into thinking that she's an easy target. As she begins to create tougher undercover characters, she discovers that they might be able to inspire her in her off-duty life as well. Despite the violence of her job, the sexism she faces daily, and a rocky-at-best 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 Marie Cirile, the real-life inspiration for Marie Carrara, Edward Conlon adapts the true events of her memoir into a thrilling drama, a book only a best-selling author and decorated Bronx detective could have written.

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"--,Provided by publisher.
