EXTREME COP CHICAGO:PD has been QUOTED and SHOWN in the May 2007 PLAYBOY!! This is a RARE event for an Author´s First Book!!
From The Critics:
"There have been many Chicago cops who have committed violent acts. Some have wounded or killed criminals in questionable shootings. Some have been drug dealers and pimps and many were burglars. But, none of them ran even close to me in all-around violent acts, dangerous car chases on a regular basis (some at 130 in heavy traffic), maniacal behavior during arrests, the torturing of criminals, the rule violations--which nobody had the balls to commit--and unprecedented civil rights violations all on an almost daily basis."---Editorial Section, May 2007 PLAYBOY

"Mr. Extreme...Jerry Ardolino is one wild dude...articulate...intense. Extreme Cop blows The Shield [T. V. Series] apart."----LAS VEGAS WEEKLY, November 8, 2007 issue
"I enjoyed the writing style. [EXTREME COP: CHICAGO PD] It really spoke to me. As editor of Police-Writers.com, I see all kinds of cop books. Guys write their memoirs; they read like police reports. Few of them get to a literary area where I think you´ve gone with this. A lot of cop books--I can read the scenerios and I can see it happening, but with yours the imagination is very peaked...some pretty erotic passages."---Lt. Raymond Foster, LAPD Ret.--Editor, Police Writers; Host: THE WATERING HOLE INTERNET RADIO SHOW
EXTREME COP:CHICAGO PD is the true story of JERRY ARDOLINO, the wildest, most violent cop in the history of the Chicago Police Department and that would mean: in the history of the world. Jerry Ardolino is the book’s author and it is the first true, full-length on-going story about the Chicago Police written by an insider. It has never been done before.
Jerry Ardolino was a star-carrying member of that horde of hard-edged cops; the largest and deadliest “gang” in Chicago or anyplace else. The gang in midnight-blue leather police jackets who had the tools and the talent that enabled them to become known throughout the world, as the most violent, corrupt, out-of-control and; toughest police force ever to stalk the streets. And Jerry was to become known in that department from patrol levels, all the way to the High Command as being:“Extreme.”
