|About the Book|
Harold Samuel Cohen is 31 years old and still living with his parents in a traditional Jewish home. To make matters worse, Cohen works for his father as an office manager, earning a pitiful wage, and the friction between the two is growing. Cohen can t afford to move out, and bored with the office job, he decides to apply for a career as a police officer. When Cohen learns his application has been accepted, his mother is terribly disappointed. Jewish boys grow up to be doctors and lawyers, not police officers! After successfully graduating from the police academy, Cohen is assigned to Ludwig Borman, his field training officer, who is rumored to be an anti-Semite raised in post-World War II Germany. This is where the trouble begins, as a series of twists and turns and unexpected circumstances lead Cohen to wonder if he is truly destined for law enforcement. Cop Cohen offers a combination of light wit, deep characters, and the true grit of police work, making it a powerful and entertaining debut novel.
