Joseph Wambaugh served with the LAPD for fourteen years, beginning to write during his last three. His first novel, The New Centurions, was published in 1971 to international acclaim and success. He followed this with a series of highly acclaimed books including The Choirboys and, of course, The Onion Field, which he then personally produced as one of the 'best cop movies ever made'. He is a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and lives in southern California with his wife, Dee.
