OG Dan Silver's Novel is availble on Amazon

No doubt some of you remember this guy: http://theartofdansilver.com - link visually WFS. There are bad words in there.

Well, he wrote a novel and it is funny as hell, as well as dramatic and suspensuful. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:

"Author and law enforcement officer Daniel Silver tells the story of a tattooed punk rocker turned rookie San Francisco policeman, Dougie Cohen. In his first year on the job, the stresses, horrors and frustrations, Dougie's encounters take their toll on his patience, health, sanity and love life. Dougie struggles with night terrors, addiction, disease and the loss of his former self to his new police persona. Dougie is on a collision course with the reality of urban law enforcement. He'll either break, or accept the fundamentals of what it means to be a real cop."

Published by Oak Tree Press on the Kindle platform, it is available not only on Kindle but for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, PC, Blackberry and I believe MAC. These apps are free downloads and the book is only 5.95.

I love the book, and thought you all might want to check it out. Here the link. http://www.amazon.com/Cop-A-Novel-eb...e=UTF8&s=books. It's WFS.

What a d......I mean, way to go Dan (if you are reading this, if you can read...nevermind)!!! Read it the week it came out while riding the Metro to work. Great read, well done, and if you work LE you will find lots of shared experiences (some good, some bad).

Nice, Warren!

The book has gotten two good press reviews so far: the SFWeekly (print and online) and the SFPOA Journal August edition, in print and then archived on line around the end of the month.

The SFPD / LE community has really supported this book, not only because Dan has a great group of co workers but because the book really is that good!

The print edition is just a matter of time.
