This book, "Black and White", is one terrific read! Written by Wes Albers, a Sgt/Detective in San Diego from the point of view of a San Diego street cop, John Hatch, I cannot say a bad word about it. I was fascinated from beginning to end.
If ever you've wondered what being a policeman, driving around San Diego on his/her beat is like, you'll soon find out in "Black and White". Wes has been there and, believe me, he hasn't forgotten a damned thing.
I cannot tell you the added respect I have for those guys. More, I cannot tell you how much I would not want to be doing their job. Don't hesitate to grab this book the first time you get a chance. Or order from Amazon. No matter where you get it, GET IT!
