is the genuine article. He stands among some of the best detectives in the NYPD. The Mosque case of 1972 is the most famous
case amongst the rank and file of the NYPD and Circle of Six holds no punches in relating the events leading up to the crime,
the day of the crime, and the remarkable efforts of Jurgensen to solve the crime. This book is a must read for true crime
fans and those interested in the history of NYC. I predict it will join the cannon of the great police stories and will become
part of a nationwide curriculum of law enforcement for the purpose of teaching how to conduct an investigation."
"Thank you letting me read this wonderful book.
It was an incredible experience for me. Not only because I remember that day and that shameful way this terrible murder of
Phil Cardillo was handled, but also as a writer who admired the emotional way the authors captured the events of that day.
The pace was wonderful, the story moved "like a downtown A-train". Please pass along my sincere congratulations
to Randy Jurgensen and Rob Cea. I remember April 14, 1972 as the most heartbreaking day in the history of the NYPD. And Circle
of Six had my blood boiling again. This fantastic book puts you right there in the teaming riotous, Harlem streets, amidst
the chaos, anger, fear, betrayal, violence and death. Every cop should read this. Every American should read it. You won't
believe what they did."

“Every NYPD member of the force and service that
has ever worn, is wearing, or ever will wear the uniform should say thank you.”
Timmy Motto, Retired NYPD Patrolman
a former NYPD detective, I can attest to Randy Jurgensen's hard-earned and well-deserved reputation as a living legend.
Even grizzled old timers of higher ranks are extremely deferential when they meet him. Long before this book came out, the
facts upon which it is based were well known to even new recruits. This book sheds light on what is probably the most monumental
instance of departmental malfeasance in history. When people who were on the job when Officer Cardillo was killed recount
the incident, the anger is palpable. Through Robert Cea, who is a wonderful writer, Randy speaks for all of them with powerful
eloquence. This book is a masterpiece that makes us realize quite painfully that our leaders are often anything than who or
what they purport themselves to be.
