"We call the police heroes. They’re the ones breaking up fights and putting the bad guy in jail. But what happens when they go home to their families? Journalist Amy Morrison lived another side of policing in her marriage to a violent, controlling cop who drove her to the brink of suicide. In Police Wife, Morrison and other police wives share their gripping and inspiring survival stories with investigative journalist Alex Roslin as he takes you inside the tightly closed police world and one of its most explosive secrets: domestic violence in up 40% of police homes, which departments mostly ignore or let slide. Now in its updated and revised second edition, Police Wife gives a front-seat look at the struggles and courage of abused police spouses worldwide—from Los Angeles to Montreal, Puerto Rico and South Africa—the ordeals of a handful of intrepid cops trying to change policing from within and why the abuse is an epidemic, one that may be getting worse."--
