It is a story book. A good mystery story which will hold the interest of the reader from the very first, which is well constructed, well sustained, and has something of the dramatic quality, is one of the most desirable things in the way of fiction, and one of the rarest. The Blue Wall is all of this. When the story has added to these good points the quality of real literary worth, of atmosphere, of style, of character and depth, it is something indeed out of the common, and well worth talking about. Canadians are not strangers to stories of crime and violence. But what of the men and women whose job it is to protect society from crime? The Blue Wall is a gripping documentary of police life, revealing the drama of survival behind the badge.
