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 comments "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.

    Cops often get a bad rap-- sometimes deserved, sometimes not.  [email protected] if they do, and [email protected] if they don't.

    One review calls it "Really fun--and a spot-on tribute."  Another says it's like "reading a script" from the venerable show.   ;)

    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??

    Well, these characters were based loosely on some particular TV characters, who displayed those same characteristics.   ;)

    Give the Boys in Blue series a try.  Perhaps it may remind some of a particular TV show that inspired many careers in law enforcement.   ;)    *cough*Adam-12*cough*   8)

    (READERS have favorably compared this series to the venerable Adam-12 TV show.  Read a couple and see what YOU think!)

    Note:  The first few books are partially written in the style of a TV script (I wonder why!!)... but the action is compelling!
