Another factual book by the author of Fighting Fire, Wings of Offense, etc. fully illustrated with photographs. Comprehensive handling of New York City's police department in action, showing the complex jobs of the force, their intricate teamwork, the many departments, the specialized skills. The lively approach consists in choosing a typical crime and dramatically demonstrating the many types of members of the police who team together to solve the crime. Dramatic writing- and the end result is not glorifying crime but proving that crime doesn't pay.
