Started off not great, and was about to give up on it. Didn't like the style initially. However, when got used to it being a series of interrelated anecdotes, was enjoyable enough and quite funny in bits.. Will give others is go.

I stopped reading Wambaugh years ago, he just disappeared off my radar. What a mistake! This is where it all started again for me, I just love this book and couldn't tell you how many times I have read it now.

As a Wambaugh fan of old, I was delighted to see a new book and I was not disappointed. Quirky characters and the usual insightful writing style. Not his best, but a good read and a welcome return.

It's been sometime since I read this author but it certainly won't be the last.makes me wonder if there was some connection with Hill Street Blues as the story format is similar.

Reading this book has convinced me of one thing above all else. I wouldn't want to live in Hollywood and most certainly not want to be a police officer there

Michael Connely is quoted as saying that he has waited a long time for this book and as a reader who thoroughly enjoyed Wambaugh's earlier gritty police novels I eagerly snapped up the hardcover version.
I was disapointed - NOTHING HAPPENS! The characters are cardboard cutouts,the plot is watered down and you keep waiting for Wambaugh to put his foot down and get into gear.
Alas it doesn't happen.
I would advise to wait for Mr Connely's next book rather than waste time and money on Wambaugh's newest effort.
Better yet go back and reread The Onion Field and at least remember Wambaugh at his best.

If you like Wambaugh then you will not be let down with this. 7 more words required? 3 more words required?
