    1. Fairly decent read about a NYPD detective's experiences on the job. Friedman focused mostly on the shoot-'em-up takedowns and it would've been interesting to read more about the regular cases he handled, rather than the gun crimes ones.

    2. Great read!Incredibly interesting. A true story about a real-life hero whose career was cut short. Detective Friedman’s wit made me feel like I was there. I highly recommend for fast readers.

    3. I picked this up as it told the story of the darkest days of NYC. It was an interesting book and one I couldn't put down. It tells the story of one of the bravest NY police officers and highlights from several of his cases and how they were solved.

    4. A great book written by a truly dedicated officer. The times back then were so different from times today including the methods used in policing! Good read.

    5. Totally amazing book about the NYPD in the 70's and 80's. Captivating stories that were so unreal.Anyone who enjoys reading about police work will not be able to put the book down.
