A Cop's Life In this powerful collection of tales from the front lines, Las Vegas police sergeant Randy Sutton goes beyond the neon into the dark corners of society, putting us into the driver's seat of his cruiser and a job that ricochets from moments of sheer terror to coffee-fueled boredom-with stops on the way at every conceivable act of human folly and depravity. With a poet's touch, and the unflinching realism of a crime scene photograph, A Cop's Life is the ultimate depiction of the hardest job there is.
Homicide Cop by Neal Hirschfeld. Steaven Dubinsky. Serpico by Peter Maas. It is the late sixties, a time of intense social and generational upheaval.
Into this maelstrom came a man who broke the mold. A working class, Brooklyn-born, Italian cop with long hair, a beard, and a taste for operaand ballet. Most of all, Frank Serpico was a man who couldn't be silenced -- or Most of all, Frank Serpico was a man who couldn't be silenced -- or bought. Police payoffs, protection, and shakedowns of gambling rackets and drug dealers were common practice. The so-called bluecode of silence protected the minority of crooked cops from the sanction of the majority.
Young and enthusiastic, Detective Robert Leuci was Young and enthusiastic, Detective Robert Leuci was chosen by federal prosecutors Rudolf Giuliani, Maurice Nadjari, and Tom Puccio to probe this world of corruption as an undercover agent.

Cam Madden had a good job and a carefree bachelor lifestyle when he impulsively tried out for the police academy of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Now that he's mastered the theories of law inforcement in the academy, his education in its realities begins with field Now that he's mastered the theories of law inforcement in the academy, his education in its realities begins with field training and an ugly suicide call. Learning the lessons of the street leaves scars on Cam's ego and more on his body, but it's even rougher on his off-duty relationships with women.
It doesn't matter until he falls for Karrie Mac, a paramedic, whereupon making it work becomes all-important. Their romance grows in a world of burglars, bums, purse snatchers, drug dealers, and homicidal idiots, no two of them alike but each to be dealt with according to endless regulations, some of which cannot work without being severely bent.
One Cop's Journey is in a sense every cop's journey, the story of finding his own place in a company of heroes, even if that company contains a disturbing proportion of bureaucrats, office politicians, and layabouts. Somehow the finest and the flawed manage to work together well enough to keep the barbarians at bay.
