Overview

A deadly shooting leaves police officer Frank O'Ryan with a shattered knee and a growing addiction to Percocet. Upon his return to duty, he is assigned to assist the most despised person in his police department, Detective Vic Ajax.

Together, the two officers will encounter everything from drug stashes hidden inside dirty baby diapers to geriatric child molesters. They will journey into a world of madness, crushing isolation, and unsung heroism from which so few return.

Superbia is the funniest, scariest, most brutal account of what police officers truly experience, written by the only author in the world who could take on such a task.

Best-selling author Bernard Schaffer does more than write books. By day (and often night) he is a real life police detective and narcotics officer. This is the book that ends some careers and begins legendary new ones.

Editorial Reviews

Book Nook Club - Nicole Avesani
Schaffer's writing is top notch. He is funny, dark, and tortured throughout. I was laughing at one page and crying at the very next. The dialogue and relationship that blooms between Frank and Vic is both rich and deep.

    Great read!

    This is like Raymond Chandler for 2013... if you threw him into the suburbs and had him writing about cops, this is what you'd get. More please!
