9780453006606: Captain Butterfly

This tense story follows Captain Butterfly, Marjorie Butera, a 19-year veteran of the force. Assigned to the Internal Affairs Division, charged with finding proof of the corruption in the force, Butera's investigation focuses on vicious Inspector Ronald Janesky. But Janesky--in line for promotion to commissioner, with a record based on illegal arrests and torturing prisoners--is apparently untouchable. Captain Butera's fellow (male) officers fear Janesky and despise the Butterfly as a female snitch. Only her lover, journalist Charles Rose, supports her decision to expose the crooked cop.

About the Author:

Robert Leuci (February 28, 1940 – October 12, 2015) was a detective with the New York City Police, known for his work exposing corruption in the police department and the criminal justice system. After retiring from the NYPD he wrote novels, short stories, and a memoir. He taught and had residencies at over forty universities and law schools, and lectured on morality and ethics erosion at many police departments and the FBI academy in Quantico.

Peter Coleman graduated with a BFA from NYU Tisch. He has narrated several audiobooks, A&E's "Animal House: The Inside Story", hundreds of how-to instructional videos for Howcast Media, and read many Harry Potter titles to his young cousins at bedtime. He has seen the country in two theatrical tours, performed in 40 states, and acted in well over a hundred screen projects, including short films, feature films, and web shows.

From Publishers Weekly:

Leuci, the former New York cop whose exploits were documented in The Prince of the City , follows up his first two novels, Doyle's Disciples and Odessa Beach , with this tense story about steely Captain "Butterfly," Marjorie Butera, a 19-year veteran of the force. Assigned to the Internal Affairs Division, charged with finding proof of the corruption in the force, Butera's investigation focuses on vicious Inspector Ronald Janesky. But Janesky--in line for promotion to commissioner, with a record based on illegal arrests and torturing prisoners--is apparently untouchable. Captain Butera's fellow (male) officers fear Janesky and despise the Butterfly as a female snitch. Only her lover, journalist Charles Rose, supports her decision to expose the crooked cop. Leuci alternates steamy scenes of love-making with gritty slices of New York life punctuated by bloody, violent clashes before the decisive confrontation takes place between the evil, unprincipled inspector and his female nemesis. If the adventure is not entirely credible, it is exciting, fast paced and a boost to feminists. Film rights to Lorimar.
