About this product
- DescriptionIn his gripping memoir, former New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly opens up for the first time about his life fighting crime and the dozens of sinister plots foiled by his anti-terrorist teams after 9/11. After serving as a Marine in Vietnam, Ray Kelly, the son of a New York milkman, soared through the NYPD ranks in decades marked by riots, drugs, and a staggering murder rate. With an unwavering belief in justice, integrity, courage, and loyalty, Kelly developed a reputation as a fixer who could clean up troubled precincts. Those values catapulted him into his first stint as commissioner, where Kelly oversaw the police response to the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing. After positions at Interpol, the Treasury Department, and U.S. Customs, Kelly returned as police commissioner in the wake of 9/11, transforming the NYPD into a counter-terrorism force to surpass the FBI and Pentagon.
