JOSEPH WAMBAUGH

JOSEPH WAMBAUGH,  LAPD detective sergeant, is the bestselling author of eighteen prior works of fiction and nonfiction, including The Choirboys and The Onion Field. Wambaugh, who lives in California, is known as the “cop-author” with emphasis on the former, since, according to him, most of his fantasies involve the arrest and prosecution of half of California’s motorists. Wambaugh still prefers the company of police officers and interviews hundreds of them for story material. However, he is aghast that these days most of the young cops drink iced tea or light beer, both of which he finds exceedingly vile, causing him to obsessively fume with Hamlet that, ‘The time is out of joint.’ He expects to die in a road rage encounter.

 

* FIRE LOVER: A TRUE STORY

Fire Lover: A True Story by [Joseph Wambaugh]

The hunt for the most prolific American arsonist of the twentieth century

Growing up in Los Angeles, John Orr idolized law enforcement. However, after being rejected by both the LAPD and LAFD, he settled for a position with the Glendale Fire Department. There, he rose through the ranks, eventually becoming a fire captain and one of Southern California’s best-known and most respected arson investigators. But Orr led another, unseen life, one that included womanizing and an insatiable thirst for recognition.

While Orr busted a slew of petty arsonists, there was one serial criminal he could not track down. Nothing was safe from the so-called Pillow Pyro’s obsession. Homes, retail stores, and fields of dry brush all went up in flames. His handiwork led to millions of dollars worth of property damage and the deaths of four innocent bystanders. But after years of evading the police, he made a mistake—one that would turn Orr’s life upside down.

Based on meticulous research, interviews, case records, and thousands of pages of court transcripts.
