4.0 out of 5 starsTrue Crime Stories From the Officer Who Lived Through Them
Reviewed in the United States on September 11, 2016
Reading these stories shared by Mark Langan wasn't pleasant because they were the raw truth. You may think you understand what crime is all about by reading a story about a criminal act in the paper or hearing about one on the 10:00 o'clock news, but you only find out the summary. If you really want to find out what really happened on the streets of Omaha read Mark's revelation of Bookies, Drug Dealers and Ladies of the Night. A word of warning - be prepared to hear the raw truth with very little left to the imagination.
I don't like the attitude of referring to the citizens as civilians, needing to be a control freak, or the insular type of culture. I've dealt with officers like this and it always leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Put the book down at 12% through. Thanks
5.0 out of 5 starsA Behind the Scenes View of Omaha Crime and Punishment

Enjoyed Mark Langan’s stories about Omaha’s less desirable side and how hard working people stand in the face of danger to keep us all safe. It takes special people to do the job. Thanks to Mark and his OPD cohorts for all they do.
5.0 out of 5 starsTo Protect and Serve: AKA This Just Got Real!

As the wife of a retired police lieutenant, I can attest to the gritty reality of life with a man who is dedicated not only to his officers, but to coming home all in one piece to his family. A terrific read, fast-paced and full of the drama and adrenaline rushes that all involved in law enforcement experience daily, or wish for on the slow days. Buckle up, it's going to be a wild ride!!
Wonderful book! Sargeant Berry, whom the author talks about in this book is my uncle and I have always been proud to say that he was a police officer. Reading this has made me even more proud! Thank you, Mr Langan for writing this and for including him in your story. He is a wonderful man and you have given me insight as to the proud and honorable police officer anf the men he had the opportunity to work with.
This book was a good read. Very interesting, showed the danger cops face each day. My disappointment in the book was Mark making himself the "hero" in everything. This man did nothing wrong, making himself seem as the only one with a brain or guts. It is a book of look how great I am. Good read, would recommend, if you can overcome the "me" syndrome.

Busting bad guys is another great book for the public to read and help them understand what a police officers job really is. The author did a great job describing the every life and pit falls of a police officer trying to help the public and how much his hands are tied. A wonderful read. Karl. retired LAPD.
