    Portraits in Blue is an enlightening view of the New York City police department. The characters are extremely believable. Stories are from rookie years through retirement. Very well written. Thanks to Goodreads First Reads for a copy of Portraits in Blue. I look forward to more books by Henry Hack.

    Pretty good stories, kept my interest. However the last copy of chapters went way off, they were interesting but didn't seem to go with the previous chapters. I would still recommend though.

This book tells the story about three police officers lives and careers in the New York Metropolitan Police Department. It tells how the three men met at the Police Academy, Tim Braddock, Joe Brauer, Mike Benevento. How they became really close friends. They were all third generation Americans, of Irish, German and Italian descent respectively. Mike finished at the top of the Police Academy and Tim and Joe not far behind. They stay close friends even when after graduating they are assigned to different Precincts. Tim was assigned to the 84th Precinct in Brooklyn, Joe was sent to the 103rd Precinct in the Jamaica section of Queens, and Mike to the 28th Precinct in Upper Manhattan. The story goes on and tells about the most important bust the three make. It tells about all three over the years, how they made Captains, and each being assigned different sections to be in charge of in the New York Metropolitan Police Department. This story tells about the tales of violence, compassion, success, failure, life and death the officers deal with, day in and day out, on the streets and neighborhoods of New York. I found this book to be a great read. I am a retired fire fighter medic with 28 years full time on the job. I can relate to my brothers in blue, Police Officers, on what a lot of what these officers had to endure. They see the good and the worst in people. This author did a great job of taking you thru the lives of these three police officers. I would also like to thank the author Henry Hack for taking the time to sign and write a short congratulations for winning this book. I would recommend this book to everyone.
