"Joseph Wambaugh's many admirers will relish every wry and true-to-life scene of Hollywood Station, the latest entry in what will certainly be a lasting body of work. Welcome back, Mr. Wambaugh, and thanks for showing us, once again, how it's done." - George Pelecanos (George Pelecanos)
"Joseph Wambaugh invented the modern police novel and Hollywood Station is classic Wambaugh: brilliant characterization, impeccable plotting, stunning sense of place, and that special brand of irreverent, mordant humor for which Wambaugh holds the patent. This is the master at his best." - Jonathan Kellerman (Jonathan Kellerman)
"Oddball characters, quirky dialogue, and nimble plotting. Wambaugh is still the best in the business!" Kathy Reichs (Kathy Reichs)
vivid portrait of life in the Los Angeles Police Department...enthralling - Mail on Sunday (Mail on Sunday)
I have been waiting a long time for this book and two pages in I knew it was worth every minute, month and year. Joseph Wambaugh is the master of the modern police novel - no, scratch that, he invented the modern police novel. And Hollywood Station sets the standard once again. A story of cops working the street at the same time the streets are working the cops, it's full of the grit, humor and truth that make it impossible to put down." Michael Connelly (Michael Connelly)
"HOLLYWOOD STATION is a killer. Joseph Wambaugh set the standard with THE CHOIRBOYS and THE NEW CENTURIANS, and now he does so again. Wambaugh's trademark characters reveal today's LA cops through their strange and moving day-to-day lives - from arresting Darth Vader, to surfing at dawn, to losing a friend in the line of duty. No other writer illuminates the heart beneath the badge better or more honestly than Joseph Wambaugh. HOLLYWOOD STATION will make you laugh, cry, and keep turning pages. The master is back!" - Robert Crais (Robert Crais) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
From the Publisher
Further reviews for Hollywood Station:
`deliriously entertaining fiction is rich in incident, anecdote and,
especially, great characters...there is a gritty reality to all his work
and in Hollywood Station you get the strong tang of authenticity in the
often scabrous stories it tells...there is much humour in the
novel...Wambaugh introduces us to an engaging multiracial mix of cynics and
romantics...it all feels real and what's most impressive is that although
this is Wambaugh's 11th novel it has as much zest as his first.' -
`...worth the wait...the story races along at a cracking pace, with vividly
realised characters and realistic dialogue laced with black humour.' -
`Joseph Wambaugh is back with aplomb...set to become one of THE must-read
novels of the year...This is a novel of such intense warmth and
humour...Gritty, absorbing and utterly compelling' - Shotsmag -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
Top customer reviews
There are several charcters that appear through all the books, and while the plotlines start to get familiar and you can see how all the storylines and characters will come together, its just full of great cop anecdotes and never less than fully entertaining. Makes you wanna be a Hollywood cop!
This book is full of funny, crazy real life characters doing there best in the mad world of Hollywood. A fantastic read, thank you Mr Wambaugh.
