He's said he uses Isola, which is New York flipped 90 degrees, so that he can move things around or make mistakes and not get letters correcting him on mistakes. He can make the police department work how he wants, not how it really does. I don't mind that at all, but while I admire his output his books just don't interest me. I try one every couple of years to see if they or I have changed, but neither of us ever do.
