Mafia Cop By
Lou Eppolito & Bob Drury
His father, Ralph "Fat the Gangster" Eppolito, was stone-cold Mafia hit-man. Lou Eppolito, however, chose to live by a different code; he chose the uniform of the NYPD. And he was one of the best-a good, tough, honest cop down the line. But even his sterling record, his headline-making heroism, couldn't protect him when the police brass decided to take him down. Although completely exonerated of charges that he has passed secrets to the mob, Lou didn't stand a chance. They had taken something from him they coudn't give back: his dignity and his pride.
