When an old person
dies, a library is lost. Information sometimes pertinent may be gone or
misconstrued by future writers or historians. The Best Suit in Town was
written for posterity. This book tells the story of a great generation
of cops who policed a mid-sized, Midwestern industrial city after World
War II through the time of the conflict in Vietnam. It was a time of change
and turmoil that included the civil rights movement and society's general
rebellion against authority.
