This is a brand-new book and it has never been read. It is in as new condition with all corners square, no soiling, and no shelf-wear. The dustjacket is not price-clipped. This copy is a First edition as well as a First printing. It is signed directly on the title page by Mr. Wambaugh. Wambaugh is a former LAPD detective sergeant who also wrote the non-fiction book 'The Onion Fields' as well as 'The Blue Knight', 'The New Centurians', and many other masterful crime novels. This book comes with a bookmark that has a reproduction of Wambaugh's Sergeant Badge in gold and on the reverse side a listing of his works.There's a saying at Hollywood station that the full moon brings out the beast—rather than the best—in the precinct's citizens. One moonlit night, a call comes in to the LAPD that someone has been violently attacking women. Veteran Dana Vaughn and "Hollywood" Nate Weiss, a struggling-actor-turned cop, are in Hot Pursuit. The plot includes two cops nicknamed 'Flotsam' and 'Jetsam' because they are as well-known for arresting criminals as they are for shredding the surf. We also have a smooth-talking player in dreadlocks,a crazy-eyed, tattooed biker, and a very odd suspicious duo. No one suspects that all three dubious characters might be involved in something bigger, more high-tech, and much more illegal. After a dizzying series of twists, turns, and chases, the cops will find they've stumbled upon a complex web of crime where even the criminals can't be sure who's conning whom. This novel is heart-wrenching, very funny, and is an exhilarating read, An exciting and extremely entertaining thriller. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
