Sinopsis:

Book by Wambaugh Joseph

Críticas:

Joseph Wambaugh has been one of those necessary voices through the years sometimes angry, sometimes illuminating, often wise, always funny and fascinating and without him, the lives of many readers would be smaller. Including mine. Stephen King Joseph Wambaugh took crime fiction to a whole new level, to something beyond classification. These are stories with depth of character and humor and a cold, hard honesty that rings true with every read. I'm one of the few lucky enough to have already read a copy of "Harbor Nocturne." It's Wambaugh at his best! Michael Connelly Highly entertaining Razor-edged dialogue punctuates the vignette-filled plot. Realistic criminals are well matched by Wambaugh s equally authentic policein this darkly comic, gritty look at life on the streets. "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) Wambaugh embeds the stories he hears from cops within fiercely and ingeniously plotted mysteriesA very fast ride-along, enlivened by cop gallows humor, snarky street altercations, and an insistent pull to the dark side. "Booklist" (starred review) The sideshow acts Wambaugh presents mix legal justice and rough justice, laughter and tears, so inventively that it s hard to tell until the very end who ll come out on top. "Kirkus Reviews" The legendary Wambaugh's newest is chock-full of his trademark cop talk and offbeat side vignettes. His ability to weave a complex story together out of seemingly disparate elements lightens up some of the grittiness of big city police work.
