The title alone made me want to read this book. I loved it! Wambaugh can write a very authentic crime novel because he was former LA detective and the often the location of his stories are southern California which I enjoy as well. This story actually takes awhile to get going but I find the narrative so hilariously written I didn't mind the slow story line. The story is much less about Harry Bright as it is about all the other characters along the way. But the story also has a very painful depiction of the grief associated with the death of a child.
