Quotes from the back cover of “The Sticking Place.”

A must read for every cop who ever worked the streets of a major city
and for anyone with an appreciation of realistic literature that
depicts what it will always mean to be a cop. —Jerry Sanders, Mayor,
the City of San Diego

…The right choice for anyone who wants realistic insight into the
world of cops and the unpredictable situations they encounter every
day. —Bill Kolender, Former Chief of Police, San Diego Police
Department, Former Sheriff, County of San Diego

“The Sticking Place” has all the elements of a Shakespearean play;
political intrigue, betrayal, comic relief, and an understanding of
the dark parts of the soul. —Ken Hamburg, Former police reporter for
the Oregonian

For every collector of cop literature “The Sticking Place” should go
on the bookshelf right next to Joseph Wambaugh’s “The New Centurions.”
They’re quite simply the two best first novels about cops I’ve ever
read. —Bill Farrar, President, Retired San Diego and Fire and Police

Mr. Smith does what so many other police writers don’t–he gets the
little things right. And best of all, by using Shakespeare, Mr. Smith
reminds us that cops are human beings, too. —Bonnie Dumanis, San Diego
County D.A.
