Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A fascinating account of a double tragedy: one physical, the other psychological.”—Truman Capote

This is the frighteningly true story of two young cops and two young robbers whose separate destinies fatally cross one March night in a bizarre execution in a deserted Los Angeles field.

“A complex story of tragic proportions . . . more ambitious than In Cold Blood and equally compelling!”—The New York Times

“Once the action begins it is difficult to put the book down. . . . Wambaugh’s compelling account of this true story is destined for the bestseller lists.”—Library Journal

This is the real world

This not a happy book. It tells of a horrific event exasterbated by the justice system's total incompetence. Reading this book made me sad, mad, frustrated and made me dislike lawyers even more than I already do. During this emotional journey I suddenly realized that Joseph Wambaugh brought me here with his brilliance to show me a snapshot of the real world.

The Onion Field

Every police officer and family member should read this book! It tell our story when the s&$@ hits the fan on the streets. How we feel , why we dont talk about the evil things we have to see and deal with. Only a cop can explain our world to the masses.
