9780692497555: Finding 52

Ride along with the Riverside Police Department in this clever book of vignettes, following Riverside, Michigan's irreverent boys in blue. It's 1975 and Reg Thorne has just joined the force. It seems his biggest problems are to keep his wife Phoebe happy, deal with prostitutes and petty crime, and ride along with the Godzilla-like Ivan, whose breath is considered a deadly weapon.

Meanwhile, the story goes back in time as Harley Ames rattles his parents, doctors, and caretakers to the core. He is a clever serial killer in the making who thinks that there are 52 Real People out to get him. Eventually, Harley's world collides with Reg and the Riverside PD, and no one's life will be the same.

Finding 52 is like Cops, Police Academy, and Dexter all rolled into one incredible caper that you'll find hard to put down.

Review:

Finding 52 ... is a mesmerizing tale rife with memorable characters, focusing on a ragtag group of misfit cops and an inherently evil serial killer. Laced with dark humor, the [book] packs a powerful punch, told in a series of decidedly bizarre vignettes... Norman's "Finding 52" is an unforgettable, creepy, funny, violent tale that's likely to linger in your mind long after the last page has been turned. -Ray Walsh, Lansing State Journal The theme of [Finding 52]... is "don't be surprised at anything you encounter on life's pathway," the viewpoint policemen eventually come to after long careers.... After a long career as a Bay City policeman, [author] Len Norman headed up Bay County 9-1-1 and after retirement finally got a chance to put down his recollections of working at the edges of society, the fringes of morality and civility where respect and decency are unknown....Obviously, the experience causes one to be jaded and unsurprised by anything, that will quickly become clear when turning the pages of "Finding 52." The mad serial killer Harley Ames is no doubt a literary figmented composite of John Norman Collins, Ted Bundy, Charles Manson - with Jack the Ripper thrown in for good measure... Will you enjoy Finding 52? I can't guarantee that, unless you are a Stephen King kind of person who revels in the occult life of criminals and maniacs. But rest assured, if you can slog through the blood and gore of this book, no matter what your state of mind, you will be amused and enlightened about the world police officers must deal with. -Dave Rogers, mybaycity.com
