When approached to read and review Zach Fortier’s CurbChek, I was intrigued. I love “cop drama” books and read a lot of them. What interested me most is that the book is based on real events in the life of a policeman.
Each chapter of CurbChek is a different story/case in Zach’s cop life. It includes life and death violence, drugs, station politics, rules of the street and what it’s really like to be a cop in the city. I found it fascinating. While the book isn’t one “story,” in the sense that it has a beginning, middle and end, it is cohesive in that it is about the life of one person.
The book is well-written and easy to read. I’m not a huge fan of the “colorful” language but I understand that’s how it really is in police work. I highly recommend reading CurbChek for a reality check on what life is like for a cop on the street.
