This book is a great account not only of what police officers do, but also of what motivates police officers, how a department is organized and how politics are inevitably linked to the department. Conlon is a gifted writer and he knows how to write in an informal, even witty, way while choosing his words so carefully that his writing sounds incredibly mature and thoughtful.
