I really enjoyed The Blue Chameleon: The Life Story of a Super Cop by Daril Cinquanta. This book is filled to the brim about Cinquanta’s experiences while working as a police officer in Denver, Colorado. It also tells why Cinquanta finally retired. Daril Cinquanta certainly had many exciting experiences while working as a police officer. I am glad that he decided to share his experiences in The Blue Chameleon. In this day and age, police officers are greatly misunderstood and often portrayed in a negative light. It is nice to read positive stories and see how an officer has improved his community.
Not only did Cinquanta chase bad guys, but he did it all while having lupus. Never once did he let it affect his job or complain about it. Cinquanta also had a unique way of doing police work. Memorizing faces and facts about people is pretty clever. Reading this book has also given me a new view on police departments and how they always make one of their own pay. That is the only thing I did not like about this book. It is not always fair how they punish their own.
I liked how Cinquanta organized his stories based on the years he worked in each department. I also learned something about Elvis Presley. I never knew he collected guns! I do not think they make cops like Cinquanta anymore. If they do, we could sure use one in Chicago! Overall, I really enjoyed The Blue Chameleon: The Life Story of a Super Cop by Daril Cinquanta. I hope that Cinquanta continues to share his stories from on the job.
