This book follows three new LAPD recruits as they move from the academy to life on the beat, in the five years leading up to the LA riots of 1965. Wambaugh is a really good writer; he has a real knack for detailing police work with such in-character observations of race and behaviour, while maintaining clear, separate voices through different characters.
