A tough, feisty police memoir.
Following on the tremendous success of "Life On Homicide," former Toronto police chief Bill McCormack is back in this controversial and entertaining tale of his life as a policeman and as Chief of the largest police force in Canada. From his youth in Mauritius and as a rookie constable in Bermuda to his career as a seaman, when he witnessed a corspes being fed to crocodiles by local police in Mozambique, to the night he took a beating on Bloor Street in Toronto but was saved by a couple of old constables, to the time 52 Division got shot up by one of its own, "Without Fear Or Favour" will thrill and surprise.
McCormack is a bigger-than-life character who as Chief of Police of the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force from 1989 to 1995, was often in conflict with politicians but was much loved by the public, and the police who worked for him. In this colourful, hard-hitting book, McCormack tells about run-ins and friendships with Toronto politicians and police officers, including Jack Ackroyd, Roy McMurtry, and Jack Marks. And, McCormack speaks candidly about his frequent battles with political opportunists and militants, and about his daily struggles with Police Services Board chair Susan Eng and her personal agenda.
