Review

The best of Wambaugh's cop stories - Guardian (Guardian)

Wambaugh is the best in the business Kathy Reichs (Kathy Reichs)

Abounds in vivid vignettes of police life and the Los Angeles streets...the portrait of Bumper has force and authenticity -
New York Times Book Review

(New York Times)

From the Inside Flap

He's big and brash. His beat is the underbelly of Los Angeles vice--a world of pimps, pushers, winos, whores and killers. He lives each day his way--on the razor's edge of life. He was a damn good cop and LAPD detective. For fifteen years he prowled the streets, solved murders, took his lumps. Now he's the hard hitting, tough talking best selling writer who tells the brutal, true stories of the men who risk their loves every time a siren screams. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This book is the best cop book written bar none. It captures the world of a ordinary beat cop like no other, not suprising as the author was a beat cop in LA for ten years. The 'lure of the beat' shines through the eyes of Bumper Morgan and you live his last three days on duty before 'retirement?' in a seedy, but somehow sympathetic world of the ordinary man versus the ordinary cop. A world of pill pushers, con men, muggers and thieves. A world of desparate men trying to survive in a world without tax credits, where if you fall you fall all the way. Bumper has lived it for years but can he give it up? Is he tired of it or is he really as hooked as the pushers he affects to despise? Read it, you will never forget it. Is there more than sand in that valley?

If you've ever walked the beat in a Police Uniform, you'll appreciate this book 100% because it was written by someone who did just that.

Even if you never Policed a town, you'll really go for this because it is packed with detail of what happens on the street, the people you encounter, the situations, the highs and the lows.

So this is a short review, the book says it all so read it!

Joeseph Wambaugh was a real LAPD Police Officer who has it all taped. A great read!

This was not Wambaugh at his best and could have been cut back quite a few pages but once again it shows the ineptitude of administration of the law in the US when officers doing the job are ham stringed.

I remember this author from the seventies and eighties. Very true to life books. Not for the PC brigade, but like it or lump it, that's how people talked then.
