Once again the author must thank many people whose generosity with their time made possible the writing of this book. Foremost among these is John DiMaggio, whose labors in educating the author about police work were cheerful, tireless, and utterly indispensable. Art Bilek reviewed the manuscript and then told the author how it really was; further thanks go to Robert M. Lombardo, Ed Dams, Hy Roth, Bruce Clorfene, Bob Kelty, and David Walker. Many thanks to all of you.
With so much expert help, it should be clear that any inaccuracies or implausibilities that remain are entirely the fault of the author.
