Rick Cowan is a twenty-year veteran of the New York Police Department, where he remains on active duty as Detective First-Grade. His undercover role in Operation Wasteland earned him a personal promotion from then Police Commissioner William Bratton.
Douglas Century is a contributing writer for The New York Times whose work has appeared in numerous other national publications.
A New York cop goes undercover to expose the Mafia's control of the city's trash collection. Always under the threat of being discovered, the author nearly loses his life. At one point, a recording device in his underwear heats up and almost cooks him before he can get it out. Narrator Christopher Meloni, of TV's "Law and Order," talks so much like a New York cop and the criminals he deals with that it's hard to believe he isn't one of them. The profanity may wilt the ears of the delicate but makes the portrayal of the thugs believable and compelling.
