3.0 out of 5 starsWorth reading
Reviewed in the United States on September 6, 2013
A personal account of one cop's experiences in dangerous neighborhoods and gang-related territories. Only problem is the editing and formatting which gets annoying. Much of it looks like somebody put a carriage return at the end of every sentence. Interesting stories but often reading does not flow smoothly due to poor editing. Still very worthwhile.
5.0 out of 5 starsWant to be a flatfoot?? . Read Curbchek's collection

police stories that make you feel like his partner,pulls the reader off the lazy boy to ducking bullets in a gang shootout. Very interesting read, and makes it impossible to stop reading.Highly Recommend reading any and all of Zach Fortier's books

Just finished the first book.....it brings back a lot of memories......I truly enjoy someone having the balls to write it like it was! Thank you so much Zach for sharing! Although I worked for a jail and then a small city dept this rang so true with the internal politics and the calls and even the laughs. Looking forward to reading all your books! Hang in there, you are not alone!
Very readable and interesting collection. While the writing style and choice of incidents makes the author look like the only competent law enforcement officer in his department, the insights and observations he makes about police work are those of a highly skilled professional. If you can ignore some of the personal qwerks of the author reading these books can show you what it takes to be a good police officer.
