Author Info
Joseph Wambaugh
James Wambaugh was working as a detective for the Los Angeles Police Department when his first mystery, "The New Centurions", brought him national success. Though he hadn't expected anything from the novel, it thrust him into a new career that would include many more bestsellers. While he would continue to keep in touch with police departments to assure authenticity in his novels, Wambaugh retired from the LAPD in 1974. Married to his high school sweetheart, Dee, Wambaugh earned his first English degree at night school and served briefly in the Marines before becoming a policeman. He has since become a favorite among law enforcement officers, who praise his work for its honesty and lack of sentimentality or glorification.
Praise
"Razor-edged dialogue punctuates the vignette-filled plot. Realistic criminals are well matched by Wambaugh's equally authentic police. . . ." (starred review)
"You know the streets are safe when Joseph Wambaugh is on the job."
From the Publisher
Editors Note In the southernmost Los Angeles district of San Pedro, one of the world's busiest harbors, two unlikely lovers are unwittingly caught between the two warring sides of the law, amid the investigation of a horrifying human-trafficking ring. When Dinko Babich, a young longshoreman, delivers Lita Medina, a young Mexican dancer, from the harbor to a Hollywood nightclub, their lives are forever changed as the two are caught in the crosshairs of the multitude of cops and criminals, the law-abiding and the lawless, who occupy the harbor. Their paths will cross with many colorful characters: the surfer cops known as "Flotsam and Jetsam", aspiring actor "Hollywood Nate" Weiss, and young Britney Small. Humor, love, suspense and tragedy are intertwined in the everyday life of the cops and residents of San Pedro Harbor, with the unflinching eye for detail and spot-on humor that only a master of the form like Joseph Wambaugh can provide.
