Book Description:
Before Charlie s Angels, Miami Vice, or NYPD Blue, there was Dragnet. From 1951 to 1959, Jack Webb starred as Sergeant Joe Friday in the most successful police drama in television history. Webb ('Just the facts, ma am') was also the creator of Dragnet, and what made the show so revolutionary was its documentary style format and the fact that each episode was 'ripped' from the files of the LAPD.

But 1950s television censors deemed many of the stories in the LAPD s files too violent or sensational for the airwaves. The Badge is Webb s collection of stories that could not be presented on TV: untold, behind the scenes accounts of the Black Dahlia murder, the Brenda Allen confessions, Stephen Nash s 'thrill murders,' and Donald Bashor s 'sleeping lady murders,' to name just a few.

Case by case, The Badge takes readers on a spine chilling police tour through the dark, shadowy world of Los Angeles crime. It is a journey that, even four decades after it originally appeared in print, no reader is likely to forget.
