What Officer Robert Cea learned at the Police Academy never prepared him for the depraved reality of the streets. Beginning his career as an idealistic young policeman, he swore that he'd never become one of the thugs, creeps, and criminal 'monsters' he was chasing. He was wrong. In 'No Lights, No Sirens', one ex-New York cop offers a gritty, graphic, brutally authentic portrait of daily life in the patrol cars, the gutters, and the urban dark alleys - exposing the corruption that runs rampant throughout the department as law enforcers routinely break the law to stay one step ahead of their prey. Cea's courageous, uncompromising memoir is a gripping and terrifying morality tale with repercussions for us all - the spellbinding true story of an officer who traveled through hell en route to becoming one of the most highly decorated cops in NYPD history and lost his soul along the way.
