Description

"I wanted a little 'NYPD Blue' grit with maybe a grim dash of 'Homicide' tossed in, and a big dose of true bad-boys-bad-boys-whatcha-gonna-do TV. What I got was a realistic mix of bad guys, boredom, breasts, and busting chops, topped off with a wrenching shot of tragedy - cops shooting another cop." Paul Kandarian rides along with Detectives Bobby Drohan and John Corley of the Providence Police Department detective unit and observes the day-to-day life of a two of Providence's most productive cops. He discovers that in the violent and often gruesome world of detective work, one of the things most vital to the job is humor. On Kandarian's last ride, he privy to the investigation of the shooting of Providence cop Cornel Young, by two other cops.
