Hollywood Station Series, No 3

gives us a cast of street cops who are great characters you won't
soon forget. Although Wambaugh writes serious nonfiction, we have
come to expect humor in his fiction, and this story doesn't disappoint.
Dewey Gleason and his wife, Eunice, are identity thieves, and when
they tangle with Malcolm Rojas - a frightening teen with major psychological
anger issues - crime takes a new twist.
Petty street crime keeps the cops, Jetsam and Flotsam, along with
Hollywood Nate - the actor turned cop -and his partner, Dana Vaughn,
busy and some major crimes step up the pace and the suspense. The
story is unpredictable and very entertaining, providing several
hours of reading enjoyment. Wambaugh writes with wit and humor;
the cop's wisecracks are fresh and original, and the surf-speak
by Jetsam and Flotsam is spot-on. This stand-alone novel is the
third book in the equally entertaining Hollywood series. I hope
the author keeps this series going...it is addicting.
