11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
They called it Satan's Circus--a square mile of Midtown Manhattan where vice ruled, sin flourished, and depravity danced in every doorway. At the turn of the 20th century, murder was so common there that few people were surprised when the loudmouthed owner of a shabby casino was gunned down on the steps of its best hotel. But when, two weeks later, an ambitious district attorney charged young policeman Charley Becker with ordering the murder, even the denizens of Satan's Circus were surprised. The handsome lieutenant was a decorated hero, the renowned leader of New York's vice-busting Special Squad. Was he a bad cop leading a double life, or a pawn felled by the sinister rogues who ran Manhattan's underworld? This tale brings to life an almost-forgotten Gotham.--From publisher description

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nearly five million men and women have served the United States as police officers. Only one has been executed for murder. Critically acclaimed author Mike Dash brings to life the scandalous tale of Charley Becker. Charley Becker was a New York police lieutenant widely reviled in the first decades of the twentieth century as "the crookedest cop who ever stood behind a shield." Becker began his career in New York's Tenderloin district, a twenty-eight-block strip notorious for its seedy late night activities. After making a series of high-profile arrests, Becker and his "strong-arm squad" were lauded for their success in stamping out vice throughout Manhattan. But the shooting of a casino proprietor in 1912 unfolded into the most sensational murder case New York had ever seen when Becker was charged with the killing, and corruption within the system was illuminated. Critically acclaimed author Mike Dash brings to life the scandalous tale of Charley Becker, a New York police lieutenant charged with a brutal murder
