Landed on Black by Zach Fortier is a first-hand look at the reality of police work. Zach is a retired American police officer and this is where he recounts a number of situations that he has found himself involved in over the years. It takes years on the job to realize that things aren’t always what they seem and that you really can’t trust everyone around you, not even your own colleagues. Each year, the number of people you can place your trust in shrinks and you soon start to ask yourself questions about your own sanity because, after all, it can’t be everyone around you that isn’t right. They can’t all be hiding behind another face. This is the truth about police work - it can make you realise just how bad things really are and how much of a toll it can take on you, emotionally and physically, both in your work life and at home. This is the brutal truth about the life of a police officer on the streets.

Landed on Black by Zach Fortier was a rather interesting read. We all read about the life of a police officer, but most of it is fiction. This is the real truth, the real story behind the police you see on the streets every day. I found it an eye opener, a no sugar-coated account of the reality of police life, no holds barred. If you really want to know what it’s like to work in law enforcement, read this first. It may put you off but it will definitely give you the heads up on what you are about to face. Good book, nice to see some of the facts laid bare.
