The San Francisco Chronicle this morning carries Tom Nolan's review of Edward Conlon's Blue Blood, a memoir of his days with the NYPD. (This piece might have originally appeared in the Wall Street Journal, which is Nolan's usual newspaper, but I can't tell, since the WSJ site is subscription only. A pox on them!) Nolan has nothing but praise for the book, saying it "may be the most candid and bestwritten true account ever of the joys and frustrations, sorrows and rewards of a cop's life in Manhattan, or in any big city." He makes the book sound excellent; enough so that I think I'll have to pick it up myself.
