Wambaugh struck gold again with Fugitive Knights.

Wambaugh struck gold again with Fugitive Knights. I came to know and understand San Pedro, a town I'd once driven through in the old days when Portuguese and Italian sailors where the town's mainstay. I loved every minute - it was old Joe Wambaugh with laughter and tears updated to a new and frightening era of smuggled immigrants, sleazy businesses and a beautiful flower growing up through the now decaying neighborhood streets.

It felt good to do a job of investigation once again; even if it hadn’t been real police work it had the taste of investigation. He’d hoped that it might make him want more of it, but it hadn’t.

The only time he felt all right lately was when he went hiking out on the desert, like Clive Devon. And he’d suffered another accident, this one involving a nasty burn. He’d put his arm in the gas flame when he reached across the range top to fry bacon. By the time he’d thrust his arm under.

Being an ex-LEO, I can't help but read Wambaugh and literally laugh out loud--because he KNOWS the job, he KNOWS the suspects and he most definitely KNOWS the personality types of those who stand behind a badge. Another classic tale from Wambaugh!

Wambaugh struck gold again with Fugitive Knights. I came to know and understand San Pedro, a town I'd once driven through in the old days when Portuguese and Italian sailors where the town's mainstay. I loved every minute - it was old Joe Wambaugh with laughter and tears updated to a new and frightening era of smuggled immigrants, sleazy businesses and a beautiful flower growing up through the now decaying neighborhood streets. I truly loved it. After more than 40 years since the New Centurions Joe's writing is fresh, and still on target, even to a seasoned law enforcement veteran whose departure from the streets was many years ago, but who was weaned on the Blue Knights, The Onion Fields and The Glitter Dome. I've read them all and loved them all.

Wambaugh’s characters have aged as I have. I was never a cop, but a soldier. But I find a little of myself in all of his hero/villains. Another great book.

I read a lot of books from Wambough and I don't like this one. It's not a book I was expecting, lacking the usual cynical humor that I like and expect from Wambough, on the other hand who am I to criticize him...
