Of Good and Evil


Of Good and Evil by Ernest K. Gann, a kind of panoramic view in a day of a city police force. The book is written from the police point of view, the kind of struggles they go through every day, their own emotions, the kind of subterfuge and cunning they have to use in order to get confessions from criminals, so it travels on several sub plots. There is a judge who has to give orders and several times he has to give out of box judgments. Then there is a guy who have climbed on top of a bridge and threatens to jump down, there is a rape case, which the police has to solve. Friendships between police personnel, their own family lives, their imperfections, their bureacracy and what not. There is no single overarching plot in the book to follow but several sub plots. Goodreads 3/5
