There’s the by-the-book way of policing, and there’s Boss’s way. His works, but the changing police department and the newly formed Internal Affairs Division don’t like his old-school methods. 

Things are about to turn ugly on skid row. No problem. Boss can handle it. 

Loren W. Christensen patrolled Portland, Oregon’s skid row in 1972 as a rookie and again from 1983 to 1988. Boss is a composite of the veteran officers who worked the row in the 70s, men who cared about the down-and-outers when no one else did. 

Some of the skid row characters in Boss are composites, while others are depicted as they were, though the names have been changed. 

Most of the incidents in the book are based on actual occurrences. 

"Loren's characters are so real because, as it turns out, they were real." 

"I love this series." 

"Christensen can write street grit, violence, and humor all in the same paragraph."
