Operation Greylord: Brocton Lockwood's Story

£17.99

Product description

When one person who sincerely believes in the system of justice confronts and defeats the cynical, arrogant corruption of the Chicago judicial machine, the people win a victory on the order of the one that brought Goliath down. This is the story of such a man, of Judge Brocton Lockwood who wore a wire for the FBI to help clean up a traffic court tainted from top to bottom. Corruption so pervaded traffic court that Lockwood, who at first merely wanted to complete his Cook County stint and go home, was moved to defy the conventional wisdom that you can't fight city hall.

Both book and d/w are in very good condition.
