Black, White, and Gray All Over: A Black Man's Odyssey in Life and Law Enforcement

 A tough story


From shootouts and robberies to riding in cars with pimps and prostitutes,
Frederick Reynolds' early manhood experiences in Detroit, Michigan in the
1960s foretold a future on the wrong side of the prison bars. Frederick
grew up a creative and sensitive child but found himself lured down the same
path as many Black youth in that era. No one would have guessed he would
have a future as a cop in one of the most dangerous cities in America in the
1980s---Compton, California. From recruit to detective, Frederick
experienced a successful career marked by commendations and awards.
The traumatic and highly demanding nature of the work, however, took
its toll on both his family and personal life---something Frederick was
able to conquer but only after years of distress and regret.

My Review

What a tough story! It took so long because I wanted to read the complete
story to have a better idea of the book. However it grabs you and it takes you
into a journey of man. 

The book is fluently written and it has a fantastic character. I like the book
cover too. It also is very detailed, which I enjoy a lot. 

I recommend to read Black, White, and Gray All Over: A Black Man's
Odyssey in Life and Law Enforcement because it's an interesting piece of
work and very well written! 

I give the book 5 stars but if I could I would give even more!
