Joseph Wambaugh

A career as a policeman gave this crime writer a knack for procedurals.

A former police officer, Joseph Wambaugh puts his experience to good use when crafting his mystery and suspense novels, which have been praised for their authenticity and complex characterization. The author of more than twenty books, Wambaugh writes both fiction and non-fiction. His non-fiction book, The Onion Field, was hailed by The New York Times as "a complex story of tragic proportions... more ambitious than In Cold Blood and equally compelling!"
