"Superb. The most stunning memoir ever written about the cop world." — Joseph Wambaugh

From the fourth-generation NYPD officer and author of The New Yorker's "Cop Diary" columns comes an epic heart-and-soul dissection of what it means to protect, to serve, and to defend among the ranks of New York's finest.

This book, already being hailed as a masterpiece of the genre, may be the read of the decade. (Portland Oregonian)

Writing that combines the efficiency of a police officer with the melancholy of a street poet. (Details)

Short of getting recruited or mugged, you won't find a more up-close look at the NYPD than this...memoir. (People)

Splendid. A book that resonates with the shattering ring of truth. (Ed McBain, Entertainment Weekly)
