About this title


In the 1960's Detroit Michigan had a population of approximately 1.5 million people. Their police force numbered around 5200 men and women. This is the story of one of the officers that served on that department. He was no super-hero, just a man who loved being a police officer. The time he served spanned the 1967 Detroit Riot, a trying time in that man's life and the city's history. This book is based on actual incidents occurring during the 1960's in Detroit. Names and places have been changed. The book also contains street language and jargon, not intended to offend or alienate the reader, but to depict the reality in the day-to-day life of a police officer.

About the Author:

The author is a 75-year-old retiree that winters in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. His wife’s subtle suggestions resulted in his first novel, Among the Tin Cans and Broken Glass. This book is based on his personal experiences as a police officer in Detroit during the 1960s. Alley Justice and his latest release The County are follow-up novels with more exciting street cop adventures. The author’s life-long love of bird dogs led to a work of non-fiction, Good Ones and Scallywags. This is not a dog training book, but a collection of short stories about dogs, birds and people he’s encountered across the country, thus the thought-provoking title.
