Description

Product Description

Ed Norris'' career arc was dazzling.

He spent 20 years as a crime-fighting savant with the New York Police Department, rising from beat cop to deputy commissioner of operations at age 36. As police commissioner of Baltimore, he breathed life into a demoralized force that lowered the city''s infamous homicide count for the first time in a decade. After the 911 attacks, he took over the Maryland State Police and pushed innovative anti-terrorism strategies that made him a national leader in the field.

At the University of Virginia, they taught a graduate course about how his leadership techniques transformed one of the most violent cities in the country.

He was the golden boy of law enforcement, a brash, larger-than-life figure with a taste for fine restaurants, bespoke clothing and fast motorcycles.

Then it all came crashing down.

An investigation into a little-known police expense account morphed into what many felt was a politically-motivated hit job by federal prosecutors. Corruption charges were spiced with lurid allegations of pricey dinners with women and gifts purchased at Victoria''s Secret. Ed Norris protested his innocence, but landed in federal prison. Thus began the hellish ordeal that ultimately cost him his livelihood, reputation, health and marriage.

This is the incredible story of America''s most promising cop, the dark forces that brought him down and his long, emotional journey back from the abyss.

Review

"Ed is a cop''s cop. But this is not your typical police story; you''ll have a difficult time putting this one down."

--Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., former Governor of Maryland

"Ed Norris has lived a roller-coaster life from American Hero who led the charge against entrenched crime to scapegoat for the political ambitions of others. He knows the dark underbelly of the American crime scene.His story is powerful and provocative. Every citizen should read this; those
who do will be wiser for
the effort."

--James G. Clawson, Johnson & Higgins Professor of Business, Emeritus, The Darden School, University of Virginia

A must read, I couldn''t put this book down. The Ed Norris story is another case of a miscarriage of justice, something that there is no short of in this nation. His remarkable observation of the Meir Kahane assassination and it''s eventual connection to the 9/11 attacks is spot on but has never been well known publicly. His eventual prosecution and imprisonment is well known and was highly unjustified. This book is a fast read, never a dull moment and will make an excellent beach read this summer.

Ed Norris seems like a very smart man. His career in the NYPD took off like a Roman Candle. He was producing measurable results in the big arena of NYC. But...he didn''t go to law school. If he had, he would have learned the skills necessary to swim in the waters in which he found himself. He would have learned to control his temper and his mouth. Both of which were among the things that got him into trouble. Mr. Norris'' considerable talents, in this story at least, were offset by his impulse control issues. When he crossed more than one powerful bureaucratic institution, it really was only a matter of time before the onset of his fall from grace. So the first tragedy is that this very talented man is unable to give his best skills to society. He wants to. But society now will not let him. Because he drew swords (it can be persuasively argued unknowingly or it can be persuasively argued that he knew but he had the arrogance of the intelligent and powerful) with some of the truly wrong-headed, ham-handed, butt-covering, vindictive, self-interested and sanctimonious bureaucrats on the planet (the second tragedy being that this pinheads are on the public payroll and abusing power). But these fools had all the power and he went to the joint. He is a flawed hero. He tells us some of his flaws pretty quickly. He waits until pretty far along in the book to mention the marital infidelity; which suggests to me that maybe he still has some difficulty accepting it. Nonetheless, this story grabs you and doesn''t let go even after you put the book down. I''m sending it along to a cop friend, Not that he doesn''t know this stuff exists, of course. But he is a friend and I don''t want to be limited to seeing him on visiting day.

I am trying to contact Amazon about these books and am having trouble on how to do this. I apologize for having to write this issue in this forum. I ordered these two books in October and put them aside for Christmas gifts. When I went to wrap these items, the lamplight hit the one book a certain way and revealed the smudges you see in two of the four pictures I submitted. I took pics of the two books twice each-- from one direction (when you don''t see the smudges) and then from another when the smudges are revealed. They won''t come off. At first I thought it was a printing technique done by the publisher and then realized the two "techniques" are different. I realize this is outside of the return timeline, but these smudges are pretty bad. Plus I''m a long time Amazon customer and for years a Prime customer who has only returned an item once or twice. I hope you consider this. Thank you.

Just finished "Way Down In The Hole" by Ed Norris. I recommend it highly. An easy read, the word that would characterize the book is that as a tale, it is truly "unvarnished". The author pulls no punches and evinces candor in the tale of a modern Icarus. Great professional successes at a young age projected him into a higher ether. There could be some modern day parallels here for one who suddenly disrupts the norm in an effort to improve the streets he was responsible for. It may also speak to the fate of those who fall in the wrong side of the Media and become their target. It is not an apologia. Mr. Norris readily admits his faults. One is left wondering why this rose to the level of a federal prosecution and a term of incarceration. Most importantly, it''s an instructive tale on the meaning of redemption and of one having the courage to get up and salvage your life. Read it! You''ll like it.

The bureaucracy that runs rampant in police departments has always been talked about, but seeing it in black and white, written by a person who''s gone against it he is entire career is something completely different. You could say that this is one man''s word against a host of others, but given that he''s been quoted in other publications and vetted by a host of others, this man speaks the truth. Plain and simple, Ed Norris is the man.
This is a rare glimpse into a world very few people get to see. How does a police department tick? What are the issues that plagued the NY and Baltimore police departments? How were they resolved? You don''t have to be a fan of law enforcement to like this book, this is a great story plain and simple. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and the scary part is it''s all true. Do yourself a favor and get this book, you won''t be disappointed.

This cop memoir is the real deal. I was on the job in the NYPD over 32 years and everything Eddie Norris says about the jealousy, backstabbing and just plain lazy incompetence in the upper reaches of the police department is absolutely true. It''s something the public never sees. Although we never worked together in Midtown South in the early 80''s I knew him as a great, natural street cop that when he shot up the ranks culminating with his promotion to Deputy Commissioner at age 36 he never forgot where he came from. Legends from the ranks like Jack Maple, John Timony, Louie Anemone, and Ed Norris under Bratton''s leadership took the Titanic and turned it into the Queen Mary. The book is unsparing in it''s depiction of those heady days of the NYPD. Incredibly, according to this riveting book, the politics of city hall as well as police headquarters in Baltimore made NYC look like Romper Room. The slimy politicians, the ambitious unscrupulous Feds,and a frenzied tear em'' down media are just too much to overcome. I''m glad to see Ed back in Charm city with a popular radio show and I can only hope that it''s taken as a big F U to the scumbags who railroaded him. A great, brutally honest read. Walter Liddy. Ret. NYPD

What a story! As a former Baltimore resident I remember watching how our city was declining under Mayor O''Malley. Ed was used by O''Malley and then paid the price when he resigned from Baltimore Police Dept. to run the Maryland State Police. Gov. Ehrlich was an excellent governor and knew what was going on in Baltimore City. He gave Ed Norris the opportunity to use his talents in law enforcement. Did not make O''Malley happy and thus, the story. Reading the behind the scenes details of what happened to Commissioner Norris was riveting. I could not put the book down. Great job Kevin Cowherd, as usual.

I am from Baltimore and I listen to the author every morning on his radio show. I remember when he was police commissioner and what a wonderful job he did. When I heard that he had written a book about what had happened to him, I ordered it right away. I could not put the book down. It is well written and contains lots of police stories...some that are shocking to say the least.

What a truly unbelievable story of how a decent person was railroaded, sent to prison and his life ruined..
