And whoo, old Spock, he gets a look at Jim's ass, and damn me if it don't look just like two fat piglets fightin' over a milk dud and brother, it looks *fine*
Unfamiliar with the author you're parodying, but that was fun!
author is Joseph Wamaugh; he wrote several cop novels in the seventies and eighties. gritty stuff; more realistic than a lot of those, cos he was a cop for a while. worth a look, if ya like that style, as I do.

Haven't read Wambaugh, being a McBain gal, but I like this. The rhythm, tone and feel...I think I have to give the author to whom you gave homage a look-see. Very impressive.
he's worth a read, especially his first few books, before he just got too disillusioned. very clear view of LA for those who've never been there, and funny as hell in a dark, twisted way *grin* 'twas fun to write!
