Top Customer Reviews
To begin with, I am a retired police officer with 31 yrs of experience. Part of those years I spent with Compton PD. I am friends with Tim Brennan and Bob Ladd. With that being said, I am giving an honest review and would not sugarcoat or say something that is not true.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN COMPTON is extremely dark, gritty, and violent novel that describes gang violence in Compton/Los Angeles like it is. The authors are candid and described in graphic detail the crimes, investigation, tactics, personalities, and surviving living in Compton.
The novel is divided into three parts. The first part is describing Tim Brennan and Robert "Bobby" Ladd. How they got started, their training, early arrests, and developing into gang detectives. Part 2 will follow the deaths of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., as well as the criminal involvement of the infamous Death Row Records producer Surge Knight.
There have been many books and articles about these crimes, however, nothing documented has ever been published that can match ONCE UPON A TIME IN COMPTON.
The third part is about the law enforcement duties moved to the Los Angeles County sheriff's department. The corruption, the dirty politics made my stomach hurt.
Tim and Bob did not hold back. They gave the good and bad accounts on officers.
I just wanted to give a quick summary. I did not want to give anything away. I want the readers to have the same emotions I did.
Lastly, I would like the thank Lolita Files. She spent many hours on ride alongs and did an outstanding job as a reporter and author.
I highly recommend ONCE UPON A TIME IN COMPTON to all interested readers. Once again, I feel it is the best non-fiction gang/homicide novel published.
