A slower time, less of instant gratification, and certainly a different approach to people and their stations in life, but I found many things that haven't changed a bit. Just try to tell someone that their children won't behave. Few parents do anything more than get angry with the messenger. I really enjoyed this book, and the thought of reading it when it was published. If you are looking for current times, shopping malls, cell phones, etc. then this classic is not for you.
I think I'll bind a hard copy for myself and the shelf. I quite enjoyed my time with this book.
After buying a car a man thinks he may have been swindled and he calls the police. After the first meeting with Smith and Friday it is determined the pink slip was stolen from DMV in San Diego. Now, the job is to find him.
A bank robbery has set a bunch of people on edge. The FBI along with the LAPD are investigating. Tips come in from unlikely sources.
A number of burglaries are happening around town. The access points are small and Friday and Smith think they might be dealing with a juvenile. In each burglary the safe is left alone and the petty cash is taken. A carton of milk is consumed and left at the cash register. The milk carton bandit is driving them all crazy.
A missing persons report is filed on a man who fails to return from work. A week goes by without any information. The wife is very upset.
The man who owns a shop was brutally beaten to death. His body was found in the rear of his store. Friday and Smith investigate. Custom clothing is key.
The acquaintances of a few guys out of prison are reporting the robberies and thefts made by ex-con. Claims also include drug use. Not the strongest Dragnet episode but ok. Good sound quality.
Police officers deal with a lot of strange citizens. Some make their jobs easier, others make it harder. After a bank robbery the LAPD and the FBI work together to find the perpetrator.
and then the story begins. Frank is hilarious. Sometimes I wonder what happens in police departments as the cases are being worked on. Car stripping is the main story but it follows the escapades of Frank Smith.
After a 48 hours pass two Marines fail to return to duty. Many more days go by and the Marines are found but they are very ill. A man from the Marines gets Friday and Smith involved with the poisoning if the two Marines. Good sound quality.
A note comes in to the narcotics group within LAPD, having originally been written to Juvenile. The note sets up a meeting with officers to disclose information on who is in a local drug ring. Friday and Smith conquer another drug issue.
