A Different Shade of Blue gets some TV attention!

Adam Eisenberg's terrific book A DIFFERENT SHADE OF BLUE gets some face time with KING-TV in Seattle.

The book is a narrative look at what it's like to be a female cop: told on the record, in their own names by female cops past and present. Seattle was one of the first cities to have female cops, but until the 70's the women were in their own department. The book chronicles what those "separate" years were like and what it was like during the time when women were first allowed to be beat cops, and test with the men for promotion.

I'm doing Seattle for the Literary Road Trip some of the book bloggers are doing and this would be a great thing to feature. Thanks for the heads up!
