Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312967659, Mass Market Paperback)Angela Amato uses her experience as a former NYPD detective to spin this authentic page-turning case of a female cop deep undercover in organized crime.
Gerry Conte is one of the youngest female cops in the NYPD to earn a "gold shield." A last-minute substitute in an Organized Crime Task Force sting, Conte dives head-long into the fight to infiltrate the infamous Giavanni crime family. Family that the mob gives good Italian-Americans like herself a bad rap, this surprise assignment becomes personal. She wants to help bring down Salvatore Messina, the Glitz Godfather, so she cultivates a relationship with a mobster-turned-snitch, Eugene Rossi, nephew of an underboss who is closely linked with Messina.
As any good cop knows, trust is her biggest weapon, and Conte goes deep. But what happens when that trust becomes real? Could a two-bit hood and a decorated detective ever be friends? And if so, what will that mean for Conte's career-and her life?
