L.A.’s Last Street Cop: Surviving Hollywood Freaks, the Aryan Brotherhood, and the L.A.P.D.’s Homicidal Vendetta Against Me. Al Moreno. Highpoint Lit. Available on Kindle and in hard cover.
This gripping memoir vividly recounts Al Moreno’s rise as a gifted and fearless Los Angeles police officer, surviving gangs and homicidal situations in brutal urban war zones as he strove to achieve his personal and professional dreams. Packed with unforgettable scenes of both beauty and despair, it culminates in his vocal stand against corruption within the L.A.P.D., and the political retribution that ensued–a dirty internal investigation that unleashed the murderous vendetta of a violent ex-con from the Aryan Brotherhood.
About the author: Before becoming a policeman, Al Moreno was a Marine during the Vietnam War. Moreno’s natural prowess for police work resulted in seventy commendations as he dealt with scores of gangs and violent criminals during his time with the Los Angeles police department.
