The Job: True Tales from the Life of a New York City Cop

The Job: True Tales from the Life of a New York City Cop - Steve Osborne When I first heard we'd be publishing this book, I had no idea it would be so timely. With NYC cops in the news so frequently now, Steve Osborne is the perfect voice to welcome us, hilariously, heartily, and sometimes harshly into the reality of the street beat. His life is not one of mayoral disputes, union negotiations, or media controversies; it's a life of stories, simple stories of humans he must hear and help. Now retired, Osborne works wonders retelling those stories he lived, and in doing so does his duty as a writer as well as he did as a cop. - JG, marketer
