"A nice quiet night." During his two decades on the force, if you asked NYPD officer Steve Osborne how things were going, that's what he'd tell you. On a stakeout? Nice quiet night. Drive by shooting? Nice quiet night. Now, with The Job he's ready to talk, and does he have some stories to tell. Most civilians get their information about police work from television shows, which are pure fantasy. Here, Osborne takes us into his world, the gritty and not so glamorous life of real street cops. And along the way he finds humor and soul searching humanity in the most unlikely places. For anyone interested in knowing what a cop's life is all about, this is a must read.
