In 1974, Roy Frady was a
perfect cop. Now he’s perfect fodder for one of Maggie MacGowen’s
documentaries. Frady worked narcotics in the 77th Street Precinct as part of a
unit nicknamed the Four Whoresmen, a bunch of hard-drinking, womanizing cops
that included Maggie’s current lover, homicide Detective Mike Flint. They were
successful at shutting down the drug trade in their district until a series of
brutality charges brought about their downfall. Soon after, Frady was found
murdered in a burned-out house, a 9-mm slug in his brain.
The case, which remained
unsolved for two decades, never left Flint’s desk. But as Maggie interviews
Frady’s friends, sex partners, and police colleagues for her film, what she
uncovers in the events of the past, including the kidnapping of Patty Hearst by
the Symbionese Liberation Front, threatens not only to stain the reputation of
her lover but to put her own life in danger. Download and start listening now!
