    1. Lucky me! I noticed this book at a local church thrift store and purchased it for fifty centsd I may have overpaid at that. If this book was supposed to be some sort of expose, the only thing it managed to expose was that Kevin Maher is a guy with lousy judgement who tosses decent women under the bus while he "loves" junkies and crack whores. This "confidential informant" is nothing more than a sociopath who used anybody and everybody to get the money that would support his appetite for coke, fa [...]


    2. Although I liked this book, I reserved it for the sole purpose of reading about Danielle, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey. There were only about 25 pages in the book dedicated to Danielle. She definately was, as in the show, indicated in involvement with Kidnapping, Extorsion, Prostitution, and being involved with the Columbian Carelle. Not a bad read, but not something that is worth waiting months for from the library.


    3. Because I occasionally watched "The Real Housewives of New Jersey", I couldn't resist putting this book on order at the library after the drama between Jacqueline and Danielle about Danielle's alleged past. This book was a good read . well written and full of details. As far as the degree of Danielle's involvement in this crime saga, all I can say is, "WOW!"


    4. This is a non-fiction book about a man named Kevin Maher. Kevin made some bad choices as a teenager and those bad choices ruined his dream of becoming a police officer. He therefore has to live his life with "might-have-beens" and so close to his dream. If we lose one dream, should we not dream another? I think young people should read this book in order to see that an individual should grow up as a law abiding citizen. We are human and we make mistakes but we must learn from those mistakes and [...]


    5. I have requested this from the library because I am obsessed with The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Kidnapping, drugs, and Danielle? I may skim the chapters that don't concern the housewife I love to hate.


    6. Really, I only read the small section about Danielle from The Real Housewives. I was less impressed than I thought I'd be.


    7. I started this book two days ago, read halfway through in one night and then had to abandon it. The book follows a guy who was a teen criminal and becomes a police informant. He gets information out of the guys he went to jail with to commit them of crimesl of the crimes being murders. I started to get quesy reading about the cases and then couldn't sleep last night! So I threw the book across the room.


    8. Interesting book about being a paid informant for Law Enforcement. Kevin Maher lived on the edge for many years, but deep down all he ever wanted to do was be a cop, so being an informant was the closest way he could accomplish his dream. Kevin went on one rollercoaster ride after another and you will feel that when you read this bookry entertaining read.


    9. First I need to say that I am a "Housewife" junkie and I wanted to read this book because of the reference on the New Jersey show.That being said, this is a very good and fast read. I had trouble putting this down. It is a true story and I found myself being drawn to Kevin, the main character. He has lived quite the life and I hope maybe there will be a follow-up on his adventures.


    10. I read this book because I'm an avid Real Housewives of NJ watcher!! Had to read it just to learn more about Danielle aka Beverly Merrill!


    11. I read this book only because if the controversy over it on the Real Housewives of New Jersey. It wasn't bad, but go figure they made a big deal over somebody discussed on maybe ten whole pages.



    12. Cop Without a Badge reads like a thrilling novel. Maher's narrative of working undercover is intriguing and eye opening. However aside from aiding in getting criminals convicted the memoir leaves the reader unsatisfied. As we never see how Maher turns away from drugs, crime and infidelity to pursue a life not plagued by bad decisions. Although he lead a thrilling life there is much to be desired for his character. It seems he never learns his lesson.


    13. Cop Without A BadgeI enjoyed this book. Lots of insight into the world of a CI in the late 80's and early 90's.


    14. As with everyone else I wanted to read this book based on the attention it got on the Real Housewives. After reading this book and Danielle's memoir I really don't know who's telling the truth. Danielle's memoir talks about the abuse Kevin did but in Kevin's book, it speaks about nothing of that sort. Only that they had big arguments. She was only mentioned like in one chapter of this book, which got me to think why was Theresa so upset (in the infamous table flipping dinner scene). While she ju [...]


    15. An extraordinary tale of a man's life being an informant for the NYPD and at times the DEA. Convicted of grand theft auto in 1971, Kevin Maher received a four year prison sentence despite being a minor at the time. Unforunately, this felony conviction shattered his dream of becoming a real cop. But having met many acquaintances he was still able to occassionally help the police in solving cases by wearing a wire. This book provides another account of what the world of crime and law enforcement i [...]


    16. It may not be ALL true but I choose to believe that Kevin Maher has lived a pretty incredible life! It was a good read & I was excited to see what the hell he was gonna get into next! Don't know where Teresa Guidice got "prostitution whore engaged 19 times" from but it's clear that Danielle "Beverly Merrill" was definitely a coke whorebut it was the 80s and I'm pretty sure there are alot of reformed coke whores out there! lolol


    17. This was a neat book that told me a lot about the undercover work that police officers do- I'd really had no idea other than the Hollywood versions, which we all know are erroneous. Well-written although I feel the author randomly emphasized some things that were not so relevant to the story as a whole, like cars.


    18. I was not impressed with how Maher acted while he was getting paid to inform. However, sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. I think that in the long run, more good that harm was done by him.


    19. Okay guilty! I was intrigued to read what it had to say about "Danielle" from housewives of NJbut overall the life of Kevin Maher is interesting, complex, entertaininghis ego could have been a story on it's own o_O


    20. I'm a sucker for a good true-crime story! A page turner that I can't put down. We are clearly not talking meaningful literature, but a compelling story that had me wanting to know what happened next.


    21. Pretty awesome book with some great undercover and high profile stories. Also shines a light on the bad consequences of drinking and drugs.





    22. I can't decide if I like the guy or not. It seems to think he's a hero, mis-understood person who's sadly never been given a chance. I'm not sure I agree. But it was interesting enough a story


    23. Pleasant surprise. I am having a hard time putting this book down after three chapters. Maher was full of adventure during the uncertain teen years.



    24. This would have earned five stars, but I was not amused by Maher's adverse behavior while working as an informant. I would be interested to learn where he is today - professionally and personally.
