From the Publisher:

"A cop's-eye view of police brutality... courage and compassion... fascinating." -- The New York Times.

He's big and brash. His beat is the underbelly of Los Angeles vice--a world of pimps, pushers, winos, whores and killers. He lives each day his way--on the razor's edge of life. He was a damn good cop and LAPD detective. For fifteen years he prowled the streets, solved murders, took his lumps. Now he's the hard hitting, tough talking best selling writer who tells the brutal, true stories of the men who risk their loves every time a siren screams.

"Wanbaugh has captured the excitement, terror, pity, and occasional tedium of police work in a bang-up job of writing." -- The Boston Globe
