Then hang on for dear life because you are about to ride along with the covert Senile Squad—a bunch of elderly cops who refuse to stop catching crooks.
Fighting street crime the old-fashioned way is their modus operandi. The Ol’ Blues, led by their cigar-chewing Sarge, bring justice back to the streets of Omaha by taking down a brutal Sudanese kingpin who thinks he’s a powerful gang lord.
Crime fighting has never been so funny or effective when seasoned cops armed only with walkers, canes, and wheelchairs (and some gross tactics) take back the streets.

I loved this book, it is funny, clever and ingenious. Was expecting more like New Tricks, but this takes the premise of retired policemen to a whole new level. Keeps a great air of menace around the bad guys, this is not a cozy. Lots of sly digs about the invisibility of older people and bullying medical staff. I hope this becomes a series and, yes it would make a great film.
