Overview

The Tin Collectors (Shane Scully Series #1) by Stephen J. Cannell, Robert Lawrence

The best-selling novelist and award-winning Hollywood producer weaves a high-tension novel of suspense around a chilling conspiracy of corruption within the LAPD.

Inside the department, they're called Tin Collectors: Internal Affairs Agents, the police of the police. If they catch you breaking rules, they'll come after your badge. If they want it badly enough, (chances are) they'll get it.

But who polices them?

When LAPD Sergeant Shane Scully rushes to the aid of his ex-partner's battered wife, he doesn't expect he'll need to employ lethal force. But when the ensuing altercation turns ugly, Scully finds himself with no time to think and no option save the unthinkable.

Now, with one cop dead at his hands, Shane becomes prey for the Tin Collectors. After they move him to another assignment, Shane realizes they want him out of the picture altogether. And when Internal Affairs agents try to make him the fall guy for a web of corruption that extends to the highest levels of the LAPD, Shane Scully has no choice but to fight back.

My favorite subject of the book was the teenager Chooch because it touched the reality of today's world. It also made me laugh at times.

I couldnt put the book down, I read it from cover to cover in one day. Shane Scully novels are the only books I read outside of sports. This had a little football in it anyway. I suggest you read them in order, I wish I would have!!

This was my first time reading a Stephen J. Cannell novel. I gobbled this book up in two days. I was totally engrossed and just could not put it down. Additionally, I must confess - The ending filled my eyes with bona fide tears! I would love to see this novel brought to the big screen!

Cannell has both an unbelieveable ear for dialogue and an uncanny knack for conjuring inventive plots. The TIN COLLECTORS is a riveting, action-packed, emotionally-charged cop thriller that makes Ed McBain pale in comparison. Cannell is a modern day Hammett who can plot!

Los Angeles Police Sergeant Shane Sculley sleeps peacefully in his bed with no major cares haunting him until the call at 2:16 AM comes. Barbara Mular, the wife of Shane¿s former partner pleads with him to save her life from her husband Ray who is beating her up. When Shane arrives at the Mular home, the door is open so he enters. He sees Ray knocking Barbara around with his nightstick. Shane tries to diffuse the situation, but is forced to kill Ray when the latter draws out his gun.

Instead of the normal channels, a high up in the department forces Ray to go before a review board. Ray happens to have been the mayor¿s driver and bodyguard. ¿His Honor¿ wants Shane to go down preferably with a murder conviction. Shane learns that things are soon missing form Ray¿s home and if they discretely reappear all charges would be dropped. Shane knows corruption has been a way of life for LAPD (duh!), and he has to uncover it if he wants to clear his name.

Stephen Cannell starts this novel with a fast-action tale that continues to build up momentum until the story line exceeds the speed of light. Readers will empathize with Shane, an endearing hero struggling to regain his idyllic life lost in the corruption maelstrom. THE TIN COLLECTORS is an exciting story that leaves the audience wondering who will police the police when IA is corrupt?

Great police crime novel that grabs you with the first paragraph! I highly recommend it and will continue on to the next Shane Scully book.

Great suspenseful read. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. If you like cop series, read this book! I would also recommend: The Jack Reacher series by Lee Child and the Inspector Wexford series by Ruth Rendell.

I love this book. I picked it up in the book for a book review I had to do for a college class. I thought it was going to be just a boring book, but it wasn't it keep me very interested. I really like the way the book turns out when Shane finds out he is Chooch's father. This book also relates to the everyday world of police corruption.

This is the first Stephen Cannell novel I have read and I liked the way this author developed the complicated plot. The characters were well developed and although I picked up early on the attraction between Shane and Alexa I was impressed with the way these characters were handled. I also liked the ending in which the loose ends were all tied together. In so many novels there is non stop action until the last page leaving the reader unclear as to the motives. One such novel of this was Deep Fantom.

This book was not only a pleasure to read but also amazingly interesting. At first i was skeptical becuase i wasn't too sure how a novel about the LAPD was going to keep me interested but once again Cannell has managed to put together a book that includes murder, romance, as well as more than you ever wanted to know about the LAPD! I find Cannell's writing to be so interesting because you will actually learn something with each novel of his you read, and the subjects are endless. The book is an excellent read and will leave you hanging to the point it's next to impossible to put down. I loved every minute of it! Thank you Stephen , your a creative genius!

Well written, and hard to put down.The Author of this book should meet the Author of another shocking cop true-life story, U.S Customs Badge of Dishonor.Both of these books would make great movies.
