Michael Grantabout this book: As an retired NYPD lieutenant with 23 years experience, author Michael Grant gives the reader an insider's look at how a NYPD precinct is run. NYPD Headquarters' rising star, Captain Richard Leland, is horrified to find he is being sent to tame an unruly precinct in the Bronx called "Fort Frenzy." As far as he's concerned, a precinct assignment, and its attendant problems, is a dangerous minefield that can blow his promising career all to hell in a heartbeat. Among the challenges Leland faces is a dangerous and loud-mouthed community activist who is looking for national TV exposure, a boss that doesn't want him running the precinct, recalcitrant cops, shady politicians, a burglary team who break into restaurants to cook themselves a meal, a poet bandit who writes a poem on every robbery note, a radio car romance, and an attractive, if contentious, community activist who is a thorn in his side. Or is she?
This novel is roller coaster ride of laughter, hi-jinks, and tragedy. Finally, everything comes to a head when the community activist decides to picket a Korean grocery store, and tension in the precinct rises. Leland is faced with his own Armageddon: will he protect his career or do the right thing?
