If you're a cop in Hollywood, you have to deal with the most overwrought, desperate, and deluded criminals anywhere. The glamour city is more like a minefield, where a night on the job means killing time and trying not to get killed, and no one captures it like former LA detective Joseph Wambaugh. This superb reading by Adam Grupper, a veteran of Broadway productions and television crime shows, earned an Earphones Award from AudioFile magazine, who called it "a standout in audio fiction. The chameleon-like Grupper creates full-on characterizations of Wambaugh's cast of cops, felons, addicts, street people, and Slavic lowlifes…. A vivid, memorable, highly entertaining audio experience."
