Best-selling police authors Paul Bishop (Tequila Mockingbird, Twice Dead), Ed(ward) Dee (Nightbird, Little Boy Blue), Jim DeFilippi (Blood Sugar, Duck Alley) and Dan Mahoney (Black and White, Edge of the City) bring the grit of the city streets to life in the pages of Cop Tales 2000. Joining them are writers whose books will hit the shelves this year, including Gina Gallo (Armed and Dangerous) and Laurick Ingram, whose release is forthcoming from St. Martin's Press.
Other members of the Police Writers Club also make the pages of Cop Tales 2000 sizzle. Marlene Loos, for example, who has the dubious honor of being the first female Suffolk Co. (NY) PD officer shot in the line of duty, writes about her experiences in "The Healing Game." Retired NYPD officer Philip Bulone reminisces about his last day on the Job in "Blue is the Color of Death." Robert Cohen remembers his days with the New York City Transit Police in "Going to Manhattan."
On the lighter side, forensic fire photographer Penny James, whose photos remain part of evidence in the Oklahoma City bombing to this day, writes about an investigator who gets help solving a crime from famous fictional detectives that only he can see in "Café Midnight." Retired police officer Keith Bettinger pens a delightful tale of major cases in the tiny "forgotten" borough of New York City in "A Heinous Crime on Staten Island." Marilyn Olsen, editor of Indiana's Finest magazine, discusses a hilarious marijuana raid that was fun for everyone except the culprits in "Harvest Time for the ISP." Editor Liz Martínez DeFranco showcases the underbelly of the Mexican tourist hot-spot, Puerto Vallarta, in "The Feast of St. Cecilia."
The winning stories from the last two Police Writers Conferences are also included in the anthology.

These writers know how to tell it like it is. All are currently or fomerly street cops who lived and worked the stories they tell. From Gina Gallo's true street stories from Chicago to Keith Bettinger's fiction, I enjoyed every page. Once you start reading this one, you won't put it down until every story is read.
