Busted: A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love
by Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker

Busted is an insightful look at the world of investigative reporting written with a flair that belies a perception of how you might think a book on police corruption or any kind of investigative reporting might be like: boring. It is far from it. Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker have written a page-turning book where the players are treated with a humanistic approach peppered with objective reporting and subjective humor and compassion for both perpetrators and victims.

It’s easy to see why they won a Pulitzer Prize.

Busted: A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love can be found in the popular reading section on the first floor in the Post Learning Commons.
