“Norco ’80 makes meticulous research and devotion to the truth fuse with suspense and excitement until the reader is right there, a witness to this guns-blazing account of a crime that changed American law enforcement’s readiness for violence in the extreme.” —Joseph Wambaugh, author of The Onion Field
“Simply put, Norco ’80 is one of the best true crime accounts ever written. Harrowing, incisive, and important.” —Tod Goldberg, author of Gangsterland
