Review: Blue Blood

User Review  - Steven - Goodreads

Excellent book. This was a sweeping police memoir that did more than just relate Conlon's experiences in NYPD--it tied them in with the themes of honor and courage that he thoroughly explores in this book. The prose is excellent, too. One of the best police memoirs I've ever read. Read full review
