'The rogue cop was a good cop - smart, brave, experienced. But there was dirt on his hands. ...' So begins the blurb on the jacket. When the Mob snuffed out Mike Carmody's brother 'like a nickel cigar', he stalked them down. Rogue Cop is from the pen of William McGivern, the author of The Big Heat. One wonders what Carmody, the Rogue Cop, thinks about the anorexic arm hanging over the bath? Rogue Cop became a film in 1954, starring Robert Taylor, George Raft, Anne Francis, and Janet Leigh.
