The decision they make that day to believe Benny's saga will lead the two journalists to uncover a truth darker than they could have imagined.
Busted is Ruderman and Laker's riveting account of their explosive investigation into the acts committed by rogue members of the narcotics squad.
The remarkable lengths Ruderman and Laker go to for the story - chasing down witnesses on the city's grimmest streets, sifting through archive boxes and hours of surveillance tape for crucial clues, and coaxing reluctant victims to come forward - put their determination to balance motherhood with the career they love to the ultimate test. But when they produce a devastating series of articles that blows the lid off the scandal - prompting civil lawsuits against the city and the reexamination of hundreds of convictions (although none of the officers have been charged or convicted of any crime) - they not only win the fight for justice; they also win a Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting, an unthinkable achievement for two city reporters at a beleaguered regional paper.

Not for me
I just could not get into this book. I thought it would be much more than it is. Maybe a different narrator would of helped. It's not a true crime like I was thinking it would be. It's more the authors experiences as a reporter. Very boring.
