    Zach Fortier is back with more true crime accounts from the streets. This time he deals with the subject of cops gone bad, including an account of one cop that made the FBI's ten most wanted list for a brutal, quadruple murder. It's hard to believe - and read - about so many police officers that fall from grace and make every mistake possible: theft, murder, fraud, drug abuse, and more. Not to mention the cops sent to prison, proving that "anyone is capable of anything given the right circumstances."

    Landed on Black is about the reality that every cop comes to realize. After you have been on the job long enough you realize that nothing is how it seems. Your circle of people that you can trust...really trust, gets smaller every year and you start to question your own sanity. Could everyone you know be this messed up? Is it really possible that you missed all the facades and the ruses that people kept up? Before I started working as a cop I was and careful about whom I chose to associate with.

    StreetCreds is a look inside the world of street gangs and the cops that work them.

    I worked the street for many years before I entered the Gang Task Force, joining it with the idea that I could rise to the level of violence of any banger I encountered - a really stupid idea. I wanted to "earn back" the respect of the citizens for the police; I grew up in this city, and I worked its streets the best way I knew how, feeling that I had a firsthand understanding of what the citizens were experiencing.
