Publisher's Summary

Christmas, 1953: While the rest of Philadelphia sings "Jingle Bells," Thomas Grubb gets his first taste of a cop's life. Before he cashes his first paycheck he encounters: A man gutted by a knife-wielding mugger; A fighting-mad "mental case" intent on destroying a hospital emergency room; The hushed-up shooting death of an undercover cop. That first week is nothing compared to what lies ahead. Working as a street cop, an undercover officer, a detective and finally gang control, Grubb will spend the next thirty years going toe-to-toe with all the fast-changing and sometimes violent events that have rocked American society.

    "Roy Wells creates this character with his voice"
    What made the experience of listening to A Cop's Life the most enjoyable?

    I truly enjoyed the way Roy Wells has the perfect accent for a Philly cop. This autobiographical book is told in first person. The Cop of the title has passed away, but Wells makes him live again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Cop's Life?

    The most memorable impression was of the casual, offhand manner in which Tom Grubb accepted promotions.


    What about Roy Wells’s performance did you like?

    Roy Wells creates the character who is telling you the story of his career as a Cop in Philadelphia by accent and cadence of speech that just captures the era.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Always reluctant to set it aside, I was always eager to pick it up again. There is always the "what will happen next" question burbling through it all.


    Any additional comments?

    I reviewed this on Amazon on the e-book page, too, with more extensive remarks.
