Art Cop (Laurie Schneider Adams) pdf, epub, doc

This one is definitely a product of it's time, a seventies themed non-fiction book about Volpe and his role as the one constant on the NYC "art squad." We get a kind of over-the-shoulder view of Volpe's adventures and investigations, following the mysteries he solves as they play out. There's a lot about his mustache, which is awesome, his blue jeans, his hot cars. It's kind of fawning, unless it's totally tongue in cheek.

There are some flaws, beyond the narrative stance, like many of the mysteries resolve themselves in ways that aren't all that satisfying— people realize the jig is up and fold too quickly, or else something else is going on, but we never learn what. There's a paucity of real detective work on display here— I'm sure it's happening, but the book doesn't really capture that. Instead, it's a lot of flash and bluster.

But it's still an intriguing window into someone's world, presented uncritically, and that's gotta be worth something.
