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.
