Rose City Vice: Portland in the 70's—Dirty Cops and Dirty Robbers

by Phil Stanford

This noir-esque expose of Portland in the 70s is gritty, full of drugs, blackmail, prostitution, scandal. A short and sweet book that covers a variety of criminals who ran rampant through the city, it includes photographs and dossiers of criminals (both with a badge and without). This book meets all the requirements for a great night time read.
