Author and Former Chicago Police Officer Gina Gallo calls On the Job "a must-read"

Former Chicago Police Officer Gina Gallo, author of Armed and Dangerous: Memoirs of a Chicago Policewoman, offered this advanced praise for Daniel P. Smith's upcoming release On the Job: Behind the Stars of the Chicago Police Department:

"In a cop's world, the one truth is making it through your tour of duty alive—everything else is just a matter of interpretation. Armed only with an unflinching eye, Danny Smith invades that world to discover the truths, examine the shadows, and interpret the culture of those who hold the line. A must-read for anyone interested in the real story behind the blue."
