Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says he hopes since the candidates in the race for mayor are dwindling, the public will start hearing more about their counterterrorism plans.

Earlier this week, Kelly criticized the mayoral hopefuls for not requesting a terrorism briefing.

Appearing on NY1's "Road to City Hall" Wednesday, the commissioner also slammed a new book called "Enemies Within" that's critical of the department's surveillance tactics.

Kelly says he has successfully defended the city from terror since the September 11th attacks and disputes the book's findings that his methods are illegal.

"The book is full of half truths," he said. "It's gossipy, it's snarky, it's simplistic and it has a lot of erroneous information."

In a statement, the authors of the book, who were also recently on Road to City Hall, said, "We encourage people to read the book and reach their own conclusions."
