Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
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, veteran officers Dana Vaughn and "Hollywood" Nate Weiss get a call about a prowler who's been brutally attacking women. Meanwhile, a pair of cops with the surfer sobriquets Flotsam and Jetsam are on the lookout for a smooth-talking player in dreads and a crazy-eyed, tattooed biker. But something bigger, more high-tech, and much more deadly is about to go down. After a dizzying series of twists, turns, and chases, the cops discover that they've stumbled upon a complex web of crime where even the criminals aren't sure who's conning whom. And for some of the men and women in blue, public duty will exact the heaviest of tolls.

About the author

Biography of Wambaugh, Joseph

Writer Joseph Wambaugh was born in East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on January 22, 1937. He joined the Marines right out of high school, but later earned both a B. A. and M. A. from California State College in Los Angeles. He worked for the Los Angeles Police Department from 1960 to 1974. His first novel was The New Centurions (1971) and several subsequent novels have been award winners. The Onion Field won an Edgar Award (1984), and Lines and Shadows won the Rodolfo Walsh Prize from the International Association of Crime Writers (1989). He has worked creatively on several film and television projects, including Police Story, The Black Marble, The Choirboys and The Blue Knight.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-12-01)

With 14 novels to his credit, Wambaugh (Hollywood Crows) is an acknowledged master of the police procedural. His patented mixture of gritty realism and dark humor emphasizes how stressful police work is, not to mention dangerous. Cops die in his novels, and their eccentricities are a way to deal with this. In his third book about Hollywood Station, police work doesn't get any weirder as actor wannabe-turned-cop "Hollywood Nate", LAPD veteran Dana, and surfer cops Flotsam and Jetsam (pretty good officers, despite their eccentricities) investigate two cases that might be linked. There isn't a lot of detecting here: more often than not, police and criminals connect almost by accident. But that, somehow, only makes it more real.

Verdict: For nonstop action and enjoyable characters, it's hard to beat Hollywood Moon. Wambaugh's many fans will read this book with unadulterated pleasure.
