Black Friday Coming Down, by David Hunter

(pb; 1990, 1992: true crime)

From the back cover:

"Every day, cops encounter a world more bizarre, more dangerous and more outrageous than most people ever imagine.  In Black Friday Coming Down, David Hunter blasts away at the stereotypes - and exposes the real experience of being a cop. . . as only a real cop could tell it."


Hunter has a natural flair for telling level-headed, reads-like-real-life yet entertaining stories about what it's like to be a cop.  Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, sometimes scary and always interesting, this is one of the best true crime books I've read in a long while.

Worth owning, this.
