From the Publisher"I've never read a more revealing, riveting account of being a police officer before. The African-American men and women here tell true stories that are terrifying, funny, sad, powerful and even profound. And ultimately the stories tell us as much about our society as the do about the officers involved."
—Ed Gorman, author of Sleeping Dogs
"Holton uses words with the economy of cartridges and chooses his targets with precision. No one who reads these fact-based accounts of the ongoing war on crime will ever again take the phrase "to serve and protect" for granted."
—Loren D. Estleman, author of the Amos Walker detective series
"Inside stories of cops on the front lines. This is the real McCoy."
—Barbara D'Amato, author of Death of a Thousand Cuts
"The Thin Black Line is nothing short of stunning. These are the real stories of cops in action, in their own words. Sometimes frightening, sometimes sad, sometimes funny, these are the voices of the real deal men and women who are the front line of defense- us against the bad guys."
—David Hagberg, author of Dance with the Dragon
