Buy Cop in the Hood

It's a great book. And I'm not the only one who says so.

"Riveting.... An unsparing boys-in-blue procedural that succeeds on its own plentiful—and wonderfully sympathetic—merits."
—The Atlantic

"Never mind 'The Wire.' Here is the real thing."
—The Wall Street Journal

"[A] riveting tale of policing.... A must read."
—Sudhir Venkatesh

"Hard-edged sociological analysis.... A devastating critique of America’s failed war on drugs."
—Orlando Patterson

"[An] adrenaline-accelerating night ride that reveals the stark realities of law enforcement."
—Publishers Weekly
