Philadelphia Guild members Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker are an investigative team for the 21st century. Which means that they have insight, nerve…and insecure jobs. The pair from the Philadelphia Daily News won a 2010 Pulitzer Prize in investigative reporting for “Tainted Justice,” a 10-month investigation that exposed an astonishing level of police corruption in the city—rogue narcotics cops who allegedly falsified warrants, sexually assaulted women, and systematically stole from immigrant-owned bodegas. "Busted" is more than a stitched-together collection of their old articles. Ruderman and Laker are cast as characters in a first-person narrative that tells a story of police corruption, but also the story of modern-day reporting: their scrappy home paper, both in 2009 and today, struggles to survive, let alone invest in high-stakes journalism. The precariousness of the institution that employs them adds an alarming dimension to the story.
