New York, NY (PRWEB) November 29, 2005
Two authors who were New York City Police Officers, W. K. Brown and Trebor Nehoc, joined forces today to announce the release of the only two books written about the experiences of NYC Transit Police.
For nearly 60 years, officers of the New York City Transit Police Department patrolled the largest subway system in the world. Amazingly, no books have ever been written about these unsung cops or the incredibly challenging conditions under which they worked - until now. Separated by many miles and many years, authors W.K. Brown and Trebor Nehoc have published the only two books in existence on this fascinating subject. The stories they have to tell are even more unbelievable than the fact that while they actually worked together as Transit cops in northern Queens during the 1980s, they wrote their respective books unbeknownst to each other.
"Tunnel Vision (Thru The Eyes Of A Transit Cop)"
Never again will the everyday routine of commuting on the underground rails of New York City be taken for granted. Readers will experience first hand the exciting, humorous and tragic events that a transit cop encounters while patrolling the belly of the beast, which is the subway of NYC.
"Tunnel Vision" is a chance for the general public to have a glimpse of patrolling the unseen world that is the NYC subway. The visions seen will make even the most hardened veteran traveler of the subway look at the concrete and cold steel in a different manner.
"Tunnel Vision (Thru the Eyes of a Transit Cop)"

"The Electric Sewer" is a rollercoaster ride through the final ten years of the New York City Transit Police, following the feckless Officer Trebor Nehoc on patrol from the police academy, through promotions, transfers and the takeover of the Transit Police by the NYPD.
The book's comic-strip format is complemented by cartoon illustrations originally seen on underground t-shirts "back in the day." This seemingly aimless romp is ever optimistic, always true-cop, and very New York.
