Description
Meet the Los Angeles blues--a new breed of cop. From the baby-faced rookies to hashmark heroes, they are besieged men, dealing daily with a world coming apart. Hunting killers, quelling gang wars, fighting corruption, they risk death every day . . . every night. Joseph Wambaugh 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 bestselling writer who tells the brutal, true stories of the men who risk their lives every time a siren screams. Praise for The New Centurions "As explosive as a gunfight." -- The National Review "Blunt, forceful, vivid . . . superb characterizations." -- National Observer "Wambaugh's policemen are neither angels nor villains." -- Los Angeles Herald-Examiner
