An instructor with the URI English Department, Leuci has published six detective thrillers based on his experiences from his time as a New York City police detective. Captain Butterfly, about an investigation of a Brooklyn precinct where ex-convicts make a mockery of the law, became one of his most popular novels. His life as a New York City police detective was chronicled in the book, “Prince of the City,” which was later turned into a movie. Both tell the story of how his participation in a federal probe led to indictments against 52 members of the Special Investigation Unit and convictions on tax invasion.
