It’s a book of organized mayhem, as if Hill Street Blues, Caddy Shack, Choir Boys, and Animal House had all blended together...

Murders, suicides, unattended deaths – Detective Patrick “Mac” MacKenna finally gets his transfer to Major Crimes. Sprinkle in the armed robberies, stabbings, and shootings; and the men and women in the Criminal Investigations Division have their hands full every day in the urban metropolis. The scent of burnt coffee lingers in the air of Major Crimes, where a diverse collection of detectives works together to solve the toughest crimes.

And if this wasn’t enough, he gets cold called by a Navy recruiter and ends up working naval intelligence just before 9/11 hits!

The police stories are factual, the only alteration being the names of the guilty to preserve their anonymity....

Favorite Quotes

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

"When eating an elephant take one bite at a time."
