Annotation:A unique group of cops, members of a highly-skilled team, do whatever they must to save lives. Whether they are negotiating, getting inside the suspect's head, busting gangs, or defusing bombs, this unique group risks their lives to diffuse any situation.
Annotation:Troisième livre dans la série des romans policiers mettant en vedette l’inspecteur John Cardinal, Quand tu liras ces mots explore la douleur et le sentiment de culpabilité du survivant après le suicide de son conjoint. Emouvant et lyrique, mais également glaçant, car un assassin pervers et manipulateur se cache derrière la mise en scène du drame.
Annotation:Entertaining action movie in which an English Canadian cop and a Québécois cop are forced to work together on a case, during which every stereotype of the contrasts between Ontarian and Québécois culture is the subject of well-crafted good humour
Annotation:"Police in Canada gives readers an understanding of the role of police forces that goes far beyond public relations exercises and the portrayals shown in the media. Addressing topics that include effective recruitment and training, police culture, accountability, surveillance, the use of tasers, racial profiling, complaints against the police, private policing, and governance, Sewell draws together the most up-to-date research in order to open the door on Canada's various police forces."
Annotation:Eye opening reading adventure in a brutal world where all hell erupts between good and evil. The policemen and undercover agents at the CPD faced dangers which could swiftly cause their untimely deaths while working to protect citizens from harm. This is a book you can’t put down.
Annotation:All thirteen of these episodes are filled with amazingly detailed and complex storytelling, sharp characterization, and endless insights into the nature of modern crime and punishment—and they’re mighty exciting to watch.
Annotation:Michael Connelly’s The Drop is another superb entry in this outstanding series about an L. A. cop who is cynical and battle-weary, yet still committed to doing his job. Connelly juggles his plot brilliantly while he keeps us guessing about the outcome.
Annotation:“With never-ending action, suspenseful scenes and mostly believable characters, David Badacci’s True Blue…will hold readers’ interest to the last page while they piece together the intricate puzzle of murder and conspiracies in the most powerful city in the world.”
Annotation:Brubaker provides a rollicking ride with plenty of twists and turns you don’t see coming. His dialogue is great, and the character motivations for everyone involved are multilayered and well portrayed.
