He rose to the rank of lieutenant and ultimately commanded the Traffic, Narcotics, and Homicide Units. During these years he added greatly to his police stories catalog. In admiration of his considerable archive, one Christmas Don received a bogus “autographed by author” copy of The Choirboys, by Joseph Wambaugh, a writer whose police-themed fiction usually involved dark humor and outrageous incidents.
