Thoughtful, Well Written, Story of Triumph

John Caprarelli had the courage to face deadly threats on the streets. In this well written, entertaining book, he has the courage to tell how those encounters effect you long after the gun smoke has cleared. He takes you through his life before the LAPD and shares entertaining anecdotes from his career. Most cops never have to fire their guns in the line of duty. John did not have that luxury. He writes about his lethal force encounters and how, unlike in the movies, cops do not always walk away unscathed, even if they were not hit by gunfire. Most importantly he tells how he was able to overcome the after effects of trauma. This book is a must read for anyone who carries a gun to defend life but is also recommended to anyone who enjoys a thoughtful concisely written memoir.
