'[The] stories of real-life policing are odd, tragic, hilarious and
always compelling ... A worthy addition to the canon of the author
known as the father of the modern police novel, Harbour Nocturne
should not be missed' Observer.
'Joseph Wambaugh is on fine form in Harbour Nocturne' Sunday Telegraph.
'I am a huge fan of Joseph Wambaugh - the former L.A.P.D. detective named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America. Wambaugh writes the best Hollywood cop novels - gritty, outrageous, hysterically funny, sad and obviously based on his crazy life as an L.A.P.D. detective. He has it down pat; the characters leap off the pages and take you on a raunchy ride. Wambaugh's books never disappoint' Jackie Collins.
'The always hilarious antics of Hollywood's finest' Irish Times.
'His books are so good they make me feel like quitting my job and doing something else' Lee Child.
'Wambaugh at his best!' Michael Connelly.
'Without Wambaugh, the lives of many readers would be smaller. Including mine' Stephen King.
