FYI. I think I will post a few more reviews of The Choirboys from the Amazon reader reviews. But go ahead and post your own impressions. Wambaugh is the absolute BEST when it comes to writing about police in particular and law enforcement in general. Remember, Wambaugh himself was an L.A. cop and I believe he also worked the Wilshire division.

I worked with Joe when he was in the headquarters building in the Office of Planning and Control back in 1969. A really great guy and a terrific sense of humor, but serious about his job. He had just finished the Blue Knights and the brass did not know quite what to do about the situation.

Except for "Lines and Shadows" which to me was very boring

As with all Wambaugh books, he keeps you involved! Having been around law enforcement most of my life - he hits it dead on.
I guess thats because he was a law enforcement officer. The first book I read of his was Onion Fields based on an actual case. I have been a fan of his ever since.
