I read previous posts here on this title and decided to read it before the Holidays. Lots of raw, in-the-trenches writing about a street cop. Over 500 pages long (paperback), I was impressed how the narrative hung together. Not sure it's a police procedural although much of the action takes place during the cop's work day. All in all, a terrific read that goes fast. And I like that the loner cop takes a dog in. Pets in hardboiled lit, like the torn up cat in George Pelecanos' novels.
