This book, already being hailed as a masterpiece of the genre, may be the read of the decade. ("Portland Oregonian") Writing that combines the efficiency of a police officer with the melancholy of a street poet. ("Details") Short of getting recruited or mugged, you won't find a more up-close look at the NYPD than this...memoir. ("People") Splendid. A book that resonates with the shattering ring of truth. (Ed McBain, "Entertainment Weekly")

"[A] sprawling, wry, opinionated, beautifully written memoir." - The New York Times

"He illuminates every aspect of police work with wisdom and wry humour...Blue Blood is a memoir that casts back to the earliest days of New York's police. It is also a family history, written with love and esteem..." -The Telegraph

"A sprawling, loose-limbed collection of funny and harrowing on-the-clock anecdotes, broken up by numerous digressions into family and institutional history..." - AV Club

Reseña del editor:

A richly textured, anecdotal portrait of life as a police officer in the NYPD chronicles one man's life as a cop, from growing up with a police officer father and his education at Harvard, to his first day on the beat in the South Bronx and his rise to detective, capturing the complex life on the street of the city, his law enforcement legacy, and the camraderie of the force. Reprint.
