  About The Book

For a cop, a night on the job means killing time and trying not to get killed. If you're in Hollywood Division, it also means dealing with some of the most desperate criminals anywhere. Now the violent robbery of a Hollywood jewelry store quickly connects to a Russian nightclub and an undercover operation gone wrong, and the sergeant they call the Oracle and his squad of quirky cops have to make sense of it all. From a detective who never shuts up about the movies, to a single mother packing a breast pump, to partners who'd rather be surfing, they'll take you on a raucous ride through a gritty city where no one is safe. Especially not the cops.




  Praise

"Joseph Wambaugh invented the modern police novel and Hollywood Station is classic Wambaugh: brilliant characterization, impeccable plotting, stunning sense of place, and that special brand of irreverent, mordant humor for which Wambaugh holds the patent. This is the master at his best." —Jonathan Kellerman

"Joseph Wambaugh's many admirers will relish every wry and true-to-life scene of Hollywood Station, the latest entry in what will certainly be a lasting body of work. Welcome back, Mr. Wambaugh, and thanks for showing us, once again, how it's done." —George Pelacanos
