A Writing Detective Retires To Focus On Books

The New York Times reports that Edward Conlon, the NYPD detective who wrote Blue Blood, a memoir, and Red On Red, a novel, has retired from the Police Department to write full-time.

Conlon told the Times that storytelling is a longstanding tradition among officers.

“In any given barroom, squad room or cookout, there are going to be cops telling stories,” Mr. Conlon said. “Many that are better than mine. I just can write them in a certain way.”
