About the Author

A B-17 nose gunner in WW2, at the age of nineteen, Robin Moore survived Europe to resume his education and graduated from Harvard in 1949. In the early fifties he worked as a television writer and producer, then as an executive for the Sheraton Hotel chain, under the less than patient eye of his father, who was the chairman of the board. First published in 1956, with Pitchman, he has since written more than two dozen major books -- and lost count of the minors -- including his bestselling account of training and fighting with special forces in Vietnam, The Green Berets. His latest title, The Hunt for Bin Laden: Task Force Dagger, also about U.S. special forces, was published by Random House in March 2003. He lives in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts.

Reviews

From the author of The Green Berets, another engrossing book-this time a "documentary" of some true-life detective work that reads like superior suspense fiction. Detectives First Grade Edward Egan and Salvatore Grosso of New York City caught a late show at a nightclub (Egan's girl friend was hat-check girl there) and while at their table happened to spot some known hoods paying court to the host of a large party. The host was one Patsy Fuca, obviously a somebody. More out of instinct than anything else, the two detectives followed Fuca when he left. Thus began one of the most amazing narcotic investigations in police annals, an investigation which involved grueling months of shadowing underworld characters, piecing together clues, and finally closing in for the payoff: the seizure of the largest cache of heroin ever picked up in New York. Crime syndicate heads in Canada and France were found involved in the international affair. Moore's characterizations of the two detectives are excellent, and his minute-by-minute descriptions of their amazing work lift right off the page. --Publishers Weekly, February 17, 1969
