"New Jersey state trooper Mike Russell infiltrated the Genovese family of Mafia gangsters in the early 1980s, working closely with a particular gang member. Russell's association with the Mafia was extremely risky, but although the stress led him to resign from the police, he returned as a civilian contractor and brought in enough evidence to convict a whole "crew" of gangsters. Full of real-life crises, plot twists, and potentially deadly confrontations, Russell's autobiography reads like a fictional thriller, but it's all true!"
