  • As a suspense/thriller writer, I've always wanted to do a 'ride along' in a patrol car. Reading "Black & White" put me right there, on the streets with John Hatch. A man who calls himself a cop, not a police officer. And he's proud of that fact. Written with authenticity and heart. Gritty and not romanticized. Full disclosure: I purchased this book from the author while at a writers' conference. So happy I did!


  • "I wish I could remember my last solid shit but I can't." So begins Black & White, the debut novel by Wes Albers. I first learned about this book at one of my trade web sites, or in a police magazine; a novel about a San Diego Police Officer, by a San Diego police officer, with a plea to give it a try. I did, and now look forward to more from Wes Albers. John Hatch is a veteran San Diego police Patrolman, partnered with a rookie just off field training, in a not-so-nice district. He is singl [...]


  • The attention to detail is astounding. John Hatch is the best street cop. The knowledge of police procedure is so apparent. Black & White is the perfect title. The ending is a pleasant surprise; relief. John Hatch is a veteran cop. Sergeant Roosevelt is his inexperienced boss. That causes some friction, hilarious moments, and just a little trouble. The book is not about that, though, but what it means to be a cop. John Hatch takes us through his world. I'm touched, grateful for real cops - e [...]


  • I love police stories-Joe Wambaugh reigns supreme-but Wes Albers may be the new Wambaugh. He takes his 25 years on the SD Police force and spins stories that make you turn the page. I gobbled up Black & White. Best selling thriller author Gayle Lynds said this in her blurb for the book: A Top-notch cop novel. Joe Wambaugh watch out! I agree and believe Wambaugh's probably proud that one of his 'brothers' took the literary path, too.


  • If you want to ride shotgun on a gritty San Diego inner city beat, take a ride in the black and white with Wes Albers to see the challenges of a cop's life up close and personal.


  • Not a genre that I would typically read, but I really enjoyed it. The voice of the main character has such authenticity. Painted a great picture of police life. Kept me entertained. Good read.


  • Wow, I read this book in two days. Couldn't put it down. The next time you have a coast to coast flight, pick this up. You won't believe how fast time flies when you are engrossed in the pages of this story. John Hatch is one of those old style John Wayne heroes fighting crime in the dark city neighborhoods of San Diego. Albers' writing exposes the underpinnings of a tough cop's heart and mind. On the one hand, he is a prankster, on the other, he stays up nights thinking about the lives of the p [...]


  • For me this was more like 3-1/2 stars. The voice is so gritty and genuine that at first I thought I picked up a memoir not a work of fiction. When I got to the big romantic interlude, however, I realized it was definitely fiction. I was wincing and almost ready to put the book down. I stuck with it however, and was glad I did. The author's attention to detail is really fascinating; he has lived the life he writes about, & it shows. The introspective bits were interesting, but I thought they [...]


  • when I started this book I thought I would love it. It was a great start but quickly became all about a mans mid life crisis. His antics kept me coming back but he finally exhausted me and I couldn't finish the book. It would have me laughing one minute then annoyed by his whinny nature the next. I may try it again. I expected it to be more about being a cop not being a lonely older guy. It was hilarious, ill give it that much for now. 3 for humor.


  • Great cop storyPeople who like cop stories will love Wes albers I am looking forward to his many future books. The characters are all real and believable
