“Lines & Shadows.” Bookcassette. Unabridged. Joseph Wambaugh’s authentic account of a 1978 San Diego Police Department experiment is as timely as the headlines it produced: “Illegal aliens terrorized by bandits.” “Special task force created to cut border crime.” Wambaugh provides the unsparing details in his familiar, gritty style. Each eccentric member of the guerrilla squad becomes glaringly real in the shadows of Dead Man’s Canyon, where life is cheap and courage is always on the line. Jerry Bozeman’s narration is just right.
