Overview

Read about true accounts, written by a LAPD police officer, as lived by him. Follow him as he spent 24 years of his life working on the streets of the city of the Angels, between the years of 1960- 1984. Go into his mind and experience the real life drama of his participation in the Muslim riot in 1962, the LA race riot in 1965, the demonstrations in the streets in 1966, and the transgression from a street cop to a homicide detective. Read about what it took to solve homicides over 17 years, from 1967 until 1983, homicides from "Momma/Papa" cases to organized crime cases. Robert E. Reynolds was one of the first detectives to work "cold cases" in Los Angeles. He was also one of the first four detectives to be assigned to a new homicide unit formed by Police Chief Gates in 1975. This unit handled only major crimes that occurred in the city of Los Angeles. The unit had city wide jurisdiction. Discover how a task force went to work on cases involving murder, rape, kidnap and mayhem through the city. This book shows how police work was really done, in a time when there was no DNA, cell phones, or computer programs. The police work was done in the streets. Come walk those streets with a LAPD homicide detective. All the war stories in this book are based on true events.
