A book telling the tale of Philadelphia Police corruption, written by two Daily News reporters, has been named one of the best nonfiction books of the year by Amazon.

Busted: A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love was written by Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker; it tells the story behind the story of the duo’s Pulitzer-winning “Tainted Justice” series.

Both the Fraternal Order of Police and Police Chief CHarles Ramsey have challenged elements of that reporting, most notably in an extensive Inquirer takedown printed in August. The reporters and their editors deny any wrongdoing.

ON the bright side? The book has been commissioned as a TV show starring Sarah Jessica Parker.

The Busted paperback goes on sale in March.
