    "Entertaining way to learn a bit about NOLA"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to a real person's experience doing their job. I'm fascinated by the insights of someone who has worked as an officer and how it effects their lives and families. I was able to almost see and smell the city as I read of a place I've never had a chance to visit. Warren has a way of writing that draws you in and keeps you wanting to hear what happens next. His humor is unrivaled. Can't wait to listen to another of his writings.

    Warren Pope is a gifted story teller.
    Every story takes you to a different place in time, each word is mesmerizing.
    You are instantly drawn into his words; Warren never disappoints and always leaves you wanting more.
    I’ve read Warren’s other books, simply fascinating in every way. A must listen to book.

    Story
    "Fascinatingly Great! "

    Many people would love to hear from an insider and the stories that only police officers' could possibly know. Warren Pope brilliantly tells many of the stories that only a fly on the wall could confirm. You'll be surprised and astounded. You'll experience sympathy and empathy at different times. You'll want to cry at times but can't help but laugh. A wonderful glimpse into the life and culture of a young cop in the Big Easy. A cultural classic that you won't want to put down.
