They’ve spent too much time working with prosecutors who didn’t believe them, or found a thousand ways to make their job more difﬁcult, or just wouldn’t get with the program. Some prosecutors aren’t exactly passionate about cops either. But Tommy got along very well with most of the people in Joe Hynes’s ofﬁce. In fact, he got along with them so well that other detectives used to kid Tommy about these friendships, warning him that if he ever got in trouble in Brooklyn the DA would have to appoint a special prosecutor because everybody in the ofﬁce was his friend.

Like a lot of cops, Tommy had read Eppolito’s autobiography, Maﬁa Cop, when it was published in 1992.
