Tooting Other People's Horns

Two of the best police books out there are little read. Too little read.

And top-quality and much more action packed than my book.

I've written about both these books before, but it can't hurt writing about them again.

Beyond Hope? by Michael East is about policing in Saginaw, Michigan. Unless you live in Saginaw, you probably won't find it in book stores, but you can buy it here. Beyond Hope? is one of those few books written by an active police officer under his real name. But East doesn't pull any punches.

The other is another book about the Eastern District. But his experience was very different from mine. Badges, Bullets, & Bars by Danny Shanahan.

They're both great books. I haven't met either of the authors. But both know more about policing than I do. And they write well. What more could you ask for?
