Dry fire - Lewis, Catherine
Paperback. W.w Norton & Company. 1996. Good condition.
This hard-hitting police procedural--told from a female perspective--recalls the early days of Joseph Wambaugh in its crackling authenticity. With a rush of adrenaline, the novel plunges you into the life of police officer Abigail Fitzpatrick and the seamy world of North Florida as she matures from untested rookie into street-smart veteran. Along the way, Abby comes up against a panoply of crack-heads, domestic batterers, burned-out paramedics, low-lifes, and the everyday stress, danger, and harassment that come with being a cop--especially a female cop.
