Maybe you and I have already spoken, but we didn't exchange names.
Since I'm married to a police officer, and for the past 10 years I have heard and seen pieces of "the job", I thought that I could relate to this book. And I did. It is a memoir of a 911 dispatcher, who tells stories that any dispatcher or someone related to law enforcement, knows. Funny, sad, disturbing stories about what human beings can and will do to one another or just what can happen to them as individuals.
I thought the story was good but rated it low at a 3 1/4 star. I would have rated it higher, but the editing was poor and I kept getting yanked out of the book. I read it anyways and I enjoyed it but sometimes not enough is too much.
