In homage to the venerable show Adam-12, which launched perhaps a million careers in law enforcement, enjoy the books of the Boys in Blue.  Readers of "a certain age" might recognize certain characters, such as Pete, the veteran cop, and Jim, his young partner.

One review calls it "Really fun--and a spot-on tribute."  Another likens it to "Screenplay to Adam-12?"   ;)

The Boys in Blue
Pete and Jim are beat cops:  Pete's the seen-it-all veteran, and Jim the eager rookie.  Together they patrol the city and handle all types of calls, from the silly to the serious.

    Some people believe that most cops are nothing but 'government-sanctioned thugs.'  Others feel that police officers are just trying to do their jobs, and get blamed for things which are beyond their control-- [email protected] if they do, and [email protected] if they don't.

    This well-reviewed series includes FIVE books about average, ordinary police officers.... whose job is anything BUT "average and ordinary."  They're smart, observant, polite, and professional.  And some readers have remarked a similarity of these books to a certain very popular 1960s cop show.  *hint*Adam-12*cough*  ;)

    The Boys in Blue series consists of novella-length books, as well as a flash-fiction (very short) "origin story."  But these books DO NOT have to be read in any particular order.  Just pick one an enjoy!!

    Oh, and did I mention that the first one, Arrest Me, is FREE??

    Origin story/prequel (free!):



    First in series ~ ***FREE***

    Thanks for reminding me! When I worked in plain clothes, the drug dealers would yell "TWEL! TWEL!" to alert everyone, when I was driving down the street. Haha. Sometimes my clothes weren't so plain. (Hawaiian shirts)

    Twel??  Does that refer to Adam-TWELve?   8)  And your mention of Hawaiian shirts puts me in mind of one Thomas Magnum.  Maybe not official police, but he was a detective.   ;)
