Michael Vecchione and Jerry Schmetterer - Crooked Brooklyn

Signed First Edition

From 2001 to 2013, Mike Vecchione was chief of the Rackets Division in the Brooklyn District Attorney's office, which was the largest urban prosecution agency in the country. Vecchione grappled with organized crime and dirty politicians, during which he supervised, investigated, and prosecuted major felony cases. 

Unbelievable and unforgettable, Crooked Brooklyn is filled with characters and stories ripped straight from the tabloids, great for fans who enjoy Law & Order, readers of true crime and those hungry for details about the system that keeps us safe.

MICHAEL F. VECCHIONE recently retired as Chief of the Rackets Division of the Kings County District Attorney's Office, completing a career as a prosecutor that spanned four decades. He is co-author of one previous non-fiction book. He lives in Long Island City, N.Y.

JERRY SCHMETTERER is an award winning print and broadcast journalist. He served for 12 years as the spokesman for the Kings County District Attorney's Office.
