Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Classic Wambaugh cop stories, culled from actual cops, delivered in inimitable style. Wambaugh’s acid take on the post–Rodney King LAPD and the resultant consent decree and rule by bureaucrats is worth reading in itself. Another terrific Wambaugh ride-along.” Booklist (starred review)
“Through the eyes of an eccentric collection of beat cops, Wambaugh gives a compelling picture of what policing is like under the federal monitor appointed to oversee the real LAPD after the Rampart corruption scandal.” Publishers Weekly
“Christian Rummel’s roles on Law & Order were good training for narrating this gritty tale of community relations officersin ‘La-La Land.’ He excels at the flip cop jargon as well as a variety of ethnic accents. Wambaugh’s latest novel in audio may leave listeners cynical about the LAPD, but they’ll be enthusiastic over Rummel’s performance.” AudioFile
