Transit cop Jack Swann travels the New York subways day after day, catching the occasional fare-beater or mugger. One day, as he is tangling with a thief, a shot is fired and a boy lies dead. Jack must come to grips with the consequences of killing. People see him differently and he himself feels changed, even liberated. He loses weight, starts to take an interest in his work, and goes on a spending spree. Though his wife is distressed, other people suddenly find him interesting?even the folks in the internal affairs division. Violence is not seductive to Jack, but a single violent incident has changed his life and his outlook. This first novel by a New York Daily News columnist is an interesting take on police life and is recommended for its unselfconscious insight into the life of a man at a crossroads. For most popular collections.
