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
"While keeping [his] clowns busy tripping over their own shoelaces, Wambaugh salts the narrative with variously funny, sad and thoughtful anecdotes featuring a cast of characters we've come to treasure...."
From the Publisher
Annotation A crew of buffoons, ex-convicts, drug addicts and privateering policemen populate Joseph Wambaugh's HOLLYWOOD HILLS, the fourth entry in the author's cycle of Los Angeles crime comedies. A brewing scheme for a major art heist bumps up against a delirious junky's string of petty-theft raids in the homes of the super wealthy. But Wambaugh's world is so full of cops searching for their career caper, or the next big wave, that even this confluence of wrong-place wrong-time criminals can't give the law enough action to keep them out of their own way.
