Bernard Kerik was New York City's police commissioner during the 9/11 attacks, who became an American hero as he led the NYPD through rescue and recovery efforts of the World Trade Center. His résumé as a public servant is long and storied, and includes honors from President Ronald Reagan, Queen Elizabeth II, and the NYPD's Medal for Valor for saving his partner in a gun battle. In 2004, Kerik was nominated by President George W. Bush to head the US Department of Homeland Security. Now, he is a former Federal Prison Inmate known as #84888-054. Convicted of tax fraud and false statements in 2007, Kerik was sentenced to four years in federal prison. Now for the first time, in this hard-hitting, raw and oftentimes politically incorrect memoir, he talks candidly about his time on the inside: the torture of solitary confinement, the abuse of power, the mental and physical torment of being locked up in a cage, the powerlessness. With his newfound perspective, Kerik makes a plea for change and illuminates why our punishment system doesn't always fit the crime.

Page Title Highly decorated New York City Police Commissioner Rick Raymond is awakened in the middle of the night when two uniformed cops are shot by a lone gunman in middle of Times Square. He goes to Bellevue, to visit the family of the policeman who was murdered, and the surviving officer of the two. He briefly meets the press, then goes to the scene of the shooting, a car that looked like the remnants of a war zone, bullet ridden and blood soaked. On the way home to Riverdale (in the North Bronx, just above Manhattan), he hears over the police radio that the suspected cop killer is being pursued in Harlem, where he has escaped via the subway, and reemerged onto the street. Raymond's instructs his driver to take him there, and when they arrive, wind up in the middle of a gun battle between the suspect and responding units. In the chase and chaos of combat, Raymond's car hits and kills the suspect. This action opening sets into motion a series of events that will take this domestic crime into the dark world of international terrorism. Complicating matters is a voracious tabloid press, internal city politics, and a long-simmering affair between Commissioner Raymond and the District Attorney (both married). As Rick Raymond races against the clock to solve the crime and prevent collateral personal damage, he discovers an international conspiracy that will rock not only the city, but the entire nation.

Two-time New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly opens up about his remarkable life, taking us inside fifty years of law enforcement leadership, offering chilling stories of terrorist plots after 9/11, and sharing his candid insights into the challenges and controversies cops face today. The son of a milkman and a Macy's dressing room checker, Ray Kelly grew up on New York City's Upper West Side, a middle-class neighborhood where Irish and Puerto Rican kids played stickball and tussled in the streets. He entered the police academy and served as a marine in Vietnam, living and fighting by the values that would carry him through a half century of leadership-justice, decisiveness, integrity, courage, and loyalty. Kelly soared through the NYPD ranks in decades marked by poverty, drugs, civil unrest, and a murder rate that, at its peak, spiked to over two thousand per year. Kelly came to be known as a tough leader, a fixer who could go into a troubled precinct and clean it up. That reputation catapulted him into his first stint as commissioner, under Mayor David Dinkins, where Kelly oversaw the police response to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and spearheaded programs that would help usher in the city's historic drop in crime. Eight years later, in the chaotic wake of the 9/11 attacks, newly elected mayor Michael Bloomberg tapped Kelly to be NYC's top cop once again. After a decade working with Interpol, serving as undersecretary of the Treasury for enforcement, overseeing U.S. Customs, and commanding an international police force in Haiti, Kelly understood that New York's security was synonymous with our national security. Believing that the city could not afford to rely solely on "the feds," he succeeded in transforming the NYPD from a traditional police department into a resource-rich counterterrorism-and-intelligence force. In this vital memoir, Kelly reveals the inside stories of his life in the hot seat of "the capital of the world"-from the terror plots that nearly brought a city to its knees to his dealings with politicians, including Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama as well as Mayors Rudolph Giuliani, Bloomberg, and Bill DeBlasio. He addresses criticisms and controversies like the so-called stop-question-and-frisk program and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and offers his insights into the challenges that have recently consumed our nation's police forces, even as the need for vigilance remains as acute as ever.

"Life as a Jailer” is a book that is long overdue, and is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. Have you ever wonder what REALLY goes on behind the walls of a Prison or Jail. If so, you just found the right book. We (Ret.) Capt. Joe DeFranco & (Ret.) K-9 Off. Tom Duncan hold NOTHING BACK in this mind blowing account of both our careers as Correctional Officers... We’ve both seen things & dealt with things that you’re not going to believe and WE TELL IT ALL... “Life as a Jailer” is a TRUE factual account of the daily on goings inside the walls like: Murders, Escapes, Fights (assaults where Officers have had fingers bitten off and Inmates have been stabbed/shanked,) Cell Fires, Rapes & so many other mind blowing stories... But it's not all bad, there are many funny stories too and (if you can believe) GREAT times. Looking back we are thankful for those days because it’s the good times that got us through the bad days...
