My Review: I gave this 4 stars. I loved the cover. This is a book for any reader who loves to read about the police. A great look into police work, that is a true in your face detail. Not for those who are easily the faint of heart. Its a up close look at the true feelings of every day in the life of a police officer. It isn’t all happy ride. This book is the true whistles and bells. I received this as a audio book for a review.
About the Author: ZACH FORTIER was a Police officer for over 30 years specializing in K-9, SWAT, gang, domestic violence, and sex crimes as an investigator. He has written three books about police work. The first book, CurbChek, is a case-by-case account of the streets as he worked them from the start of his career. The second book, Street Creds, details the time he spent in a gang task force and the cases that occurred. The third book, Curbchek-Reload, is by far the most gritty. The author is danger- ously damaged, suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) and the day-to-day violence of working the street. Hero To Zero, his fourth book, details the incredibly talented cops that he worked with but ended up going down in flames. Some ended up in prison and one on the FBI’s ten most wanted list. If you are looking for gritty, true crime stories, be sure to check out all of Zach Fortier’s novels.
