Wacky , scary underbelly of L.A. as witnessed by its cops.
on 4 April 2017
This author gives an authentic ring to his stories, having been with LAPD. This is the second I have read, after Hollywood Crows and this is better , although Crows itself was a good read. The wackos, dopers and desperadoes come thick and fast as does the cops' laconic world-weary way of dealing with them. His stories are more from the cop perspective rather than Elmore Leonard's which tend to be mainly (but not always)from the bad guy with a bit of good or vice versa. Never mind, our hero - Officer Nate Weiss - takes us around LA on an entertaining, sometimes thrilling ride as a sorry collection of would-be art thieves and junkies try to rip off a wealthy Hollywood widow who finds our Nate an arresting prospect. Is that a gun in his pocket? Read it and see!
