The Blue Wall

(1983)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Carsten Stroud spent a year with Canada's cops, riding and walking the tough urban streets, exploring the fierce realities of survival behind the badge. He writes about the real-life world built out of loyalty and loneliness, where boredom turns to panic with a flash of red light and scream of a siren. The 13-year old hooker who clears $300 a night, the 300-pound wife who beats her husband, the hotshot politicos crusing for young boys, the looney tunes, the bugs, the shooters and the bankers. You'll follow the tragic trail of a copy killer and his piece.
