"Jimmy Wagner was a cop in New York's Ninth Precinct. The Ninth is a high crime precinct, a mix of blacks, whites, Hispanics, hippies, runaways, revolutionairies, derelicts--and murdered cops. This is his portrait of his life and times. The detail is intimate, sometimes funny, and almost always frightening. his story gripped me from beginning to end."--Robert Daley
MSCOZY reviewed My Life in the NYPD: Jimmy the Wags on
This is a very funny and realistic book about being a cop in the NYPD. Half of my family are former NYPD cops and loved this book. Jimmy has a way of telling his stories that make you feel as if you are there at the time but you can't help laughing at some of the antics. I highly recommend that anyone read this book if you have lived in New York especially or grown up there. You will empathize with his adventures. He has a wonderful sense of humor!
I enjoyed this book. It was written well, it was exciting in places and funny in places. It was written like you were sitting across from him and he was telling you all these stories. Anyone interested in cop stories would enjoy this book.
