Cops on the Job

The Force  by Don Winslow

How did we get here?

Like anyplace else. A step at a time.

A job that makes you face with the other side of the city and of human beings, and there’s no way to put yourself out of it by “sharing”.  Malone is clean and dirty in different stories and different respects, so is the city and everybody. This is what we do, making decisions in this flawed world, and live with them ever since. There’s no way back.
