Zach reports that he is reading Blue Blood by Edward Conlon. "It's an ex-cop's account of being a police officer in the NYPD. It's very entertaining and a very insightful look into the gears and machinery that make the NYPD run. It even talks about corruption in the days of prohibition because he comes from a family of cops. So far it's been a great read."

Blue Blood:

An insider story of the author's career in the NYPD force. Part memoir, part action, and set in the Bronx starting in the mid-1990s, it lets us follow the author's rise within the force, from rookie beat cop through a stint in the narcotics division to finally achieving gold-shield detective status.
