Overview

Bad things happen in the Pit, a notorious crime-infested ghetto in downtown Miami. Michael Berish's experiences as a Miami policeman for twenty-two years serve as fuel for these exciting, intense stories about life as a cop in a tough part of a big city.

Not just another collection of rehashed police stories with shootouts, car chases, and damsels in distress, Reflections from the Pit contains individual, quirky, off-center characters. The stories focus on basic character flaws while dealing with social issues of the day-racism, sexism, prejudice, homelessness, segregation, and brutality. Berish uses his intimate knowledge of the Pit to bring the tales alive.

These reflections, covering more than one hundred years of history, give pause for thought and a peek into the human swamp of life in the Pit.

    I have read other great stories by Michael Berish at his 'realmiamivice' page, and it was a treat to read this book. This is not just another cops & robbers book rather, this book, REFLECTIONS FROM THE PIT, is a great collection of the most unusual, weirdest stories about both the cops in Miami and the characters & criminals they meet and deal with on the street. His uncanny and witty remarks, and his piercing penetrating defiant look at police work and human nature, make reading this book 'which is filled with high octane action' an unforgettable adventure. You'll experience a kaleidoscope of emotions that range from the heart-felt to the sublimely incredulous! These stories are truly snapshots into the dark side of police work. It'll an exceptional read and hard to put down, but when you finish, you will say to yourself: 'I never knew people like that, including the cops, ever exited.'
