Bob Delaney’s riveting life story has been told by HBO's Real Sports, ESPN and ABC, in dozens of newspaper and magazine articles throughout the United States and Europe and now in his critically acclaimed book, Covert: My Years Infiltrating the Mob.

Delaney worked the 1998 All-Star Game, and the 1994 Opening NBA Games in Yokohama, Japan. He also received the prestigious Gold Whistle Award from the National Association of Sports Officials in 2003.

He testified before the United States Senate on Organized Crime in 1981 detailing his perilous undercover work for the Jersey State Police – putting his life on the line for nearly three years infiltrating the Genovese and Bruno Crime Families. Covert, co-authored by Dave Scheiber, was launched in February 2008 by Sterling Publishing/Union Square Press.
