Summary
Depicts the brutal experiences and rigorous training endured by three Los Angeles policemen
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Meet the Los Angeles blues—a new breed of cop. From the baby-faced rookies to hashmark heroes, they are besieged men, dealing daily with a world coming apart. Hunting killers, quelling gang wars, fighting corruption, they risk death every day . . . every night.

Joseph Wambaugh was a damn good cop and LAPD detective. For fifteen years he prowled the streets, solved murders, took his lumps. Now he’s the hard-hitting, tough-talking bestselling writer who tells the brutal, true stories of the men who risk their lives every time a siren screams.

Praise for The New Centurions

“As explosive as a gunfight.”—The National Review

“Blunt, forceful, vivid . . . superb characterizations.”—National Observer

“Wambaugh’s policemen are neither angels nor villains.”—Los Angeles Herald-Examiner
