This book is about the day-to-day life of a Chicago Police officer assigned to the "wagons" in the 1960's and 1970's.


As far as the  the C.P.D. wagons: We transported not only in-custody prisoners but dead bodies as well.


The book is gory and descriptive but the language is suitable for young readers.


This book takes the reader through three very different districts ... from almost-suburbia, to bad-bad Leroy Brown territory to "The Loop" (downtown Chicago).


The book goes deeper than just police work. It also weaves his personal life into the fabric of this factual account. This is a combination crime & love story!


Available from most online booksellers for around twenty dollars.

When'd ya get this out there Mike?


When my life has ended..And my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones..I'll leave there's no doubt
But one thing's for certain...When it comes my time
I'll leave this old world...With a satisfied mind

Let me just say the book is totally captivating, heart-rending, heart-touching, funny, makes you want to say "Right On!!" when the central figure in the book takes on the haughty or self-important and scores his points. 


Immediately upon opening the book, "Wagoncop,"  the reader finds a piece titled: "I Held a Life."  Moving?  That, it is ... and the same heart and spirit that the reader catches a glimpse of on that first page continues in all the pages that follow.   


You know the expression, "He's a man's man?" This book is a "Cop's Cop" book.


Be safe all, and God Bless

This is not a crime story nor is it a love story.


It is a picture, actually many pictures, of life real and raw. good and bad.
