This book offers an inside look at the most notorious case to rock the NYPD. This is the story of the two NYPD cops who moonlighted as mob hit men, told by the cop and DA investigator who solved New York's coldest case, with never-before-released documents and information. On March 10, 2005, two highly decorated detectives, were indicted for providing information to the Luchese crime family, which resulted in eight murders, one of which they carried out themselves. According to the indictment, while working in the department's Organized Crime Homicide Unit, they were paid $4000 monthly by the Lucheses to provide highly confidential NYPD and FBI information into law enforcement operations and identify informers and witnesses. For more than a decade, it looked like they would get away with their crimes. When they were indicted, the story made instant headlines around the world. "Mafia Detectives" is the full inside story of two dedicated men who were determined not to let Eppolito and Caracappa get away with murder. Those two men were Mike Vecchione, the Chief of Investigations for Brooklyn D.A. Joe Hynes, and his best friend, street-wise Detective Tommy Dades. "Mafia Detectives" is the story of that investigation, as told by Vecchione, who led it and Dades, whose work broke the case, to best selling author David Fisher. It will detail both the investigation and the killings as they were uncovered.
