Advance excerpt which includes the opening chapters of this book. Fine in pictorial wrappers. Beatings, bribes, shakedowns are all in a day's work for Lt. Dave Klein, Los Angeles Police Department, of 1958. But when the Feds announce a full-scale investigation of police corruption, things go haywire. Klein is used as bait, "a bad cop to draw the heat" which comes from all sides: from local politicians, from LAPD brass and racketeers, all bent on keeping their own dirty secrets hidden.
