This book held my attention from the start. The action was real and the story was compelling. I am a cop and this story was told by a cop that has been there and done it. I strongly recommend this book to all police officers and anyone interested in what cops are really doing out there on the streets.

I loved 'The Calling. The Making of a Veteran Cop,' which was Dan Marcou's first book. I really loved, 'Swat. Blue Knights in Black Armor. The story was great, the action was realistic. Finally a book where the good guys are good and the bad guys are bad. I can't wait for 'Lt. Dan's next book.' I am a cop and this was a great police story!

The book really captivates in how it presents the life of a police officer and a SWAT Team member. The fact that the author was a cop and is able to give his firsthand experience to different scenarios really brings you in and makes you feel like you too were actually there. There are at time dry portions, but many books have these. All in all, if you are new to the law enforcement scene or have an interest in SWAT. This book is perfect because it gives you a basic understanding. But also for those who are currently a SWAT member or retired law enforcement this is a perfect read because it’s detailed with experiences, entertaining encounters, and tactics. The book is both entertaining and educational.
