About this title


From the inside jacket flap: "This is the truest novel I've ever written. So says former Detective Sergeant Joseph Wambaugh about the first police novel he has written since leaving the force. It is a powerful dark comedy about ten men in blue - a patrol squad attempting to stay sane in an insane world. The five sets of partners on LAPD night watch are men of varying temperaments and backgrounds, but they are joined together by the job and they have elected to share some of their pre-dawn hours in MacArthur Park in relaxation drink and sex sessions they euphemistically call "choir practice." Their relaxations are extraordinary, but so are their daily encounters. For these men, choir practice is a release from the horrors of night watch, a way of trying to forget. But the memories and nightmares go with them, even to their choir practice."
