"What makes Paul Doyle's book different from other police memoirs is that it is suffused with compassion. The writing is hard and direct except where leavened with good humor and deep feeling for the unfortunate of the world. This is a book that should be handed to everyone everywhere in law enforcement or to anyone who wants to understand how men and women in the profession can keep their heads above the dark waters of crime, addiction, corruption. Paul Doyle did - and he did it with style and a great and generous heart." - Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes and 'Tis "Hot Shots and Heavy Hits is a must read. Paul Doyle depicts perfectly what 'living the life' is all about... Doyle's dramatic account of his experiences in the drug world is a sure hit. It is serious business." - Joseph D. Pistone, author of Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia "An extraordinary memoir... The juxtaposition of Doyle's case stories about the 1970s drug underworld with his happy family life is nothing short of thrilling. There's a tension in this memoir that brings the murky morality of an undercover agent alive in a way that other true-crime accounts have not." - Anita Shreve, author of The Pilot's Wife, Sea Glass, and The Weight of Water"
