The Brotherhoods is the chilling chronicle of the shocking crimes of NYPD detectives Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, notorious rogue cops convicted in April 2006 of the ultimate form of police corruption-shielding their acts behind their badges while they worked for the mob. Their crimes included participation in the murders of at least eight men, kidnapping, torture, and the betrayal of an entire generation of New York City detectives and federal agents. "One of the most spectacular police corruption scandals in the city's history," proclaimed the New York Times in its front-page coverage of the verdict.

I gave up!

One wonders how this book could be so boring. It's not written so much like a book, but more like a report. I made it through three disks and realized just trying to listen was making me very irritable. Listen to something else.

This had to be the worse book ever! I could hardly get through it without yawning. I was so glad the third CD was scratched so I did not have to endure the torture anymore. What a waste of time!

Boring. Extremely hard to follow. Seriously, I almost fell asleep.
