Corruption is rampant in New York City because of the influence of Tammany Hall, and if anyone wants to move up in a career in law enforcement, they have to play the game. In that vein, it is hard to look down on Becker, who is no more corrupt than anybody else and is pretty much thrust into a world where graft is the norm, not the exception.

ABRIDGED AUDIO BOOK: 6 hours on 5 CDs. Charles Becker, a handsome young German-American boy, grew up in poverty in the small village of Callicoon Center, New York in the late 1800s.

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.
The city was "a morass of corruption" controlled by powerful local "bosses" who gave most of the New York Police Department their jobs. Into this poisonous atmosphere stepped young Charles Becker.
