L.A. police detective Shane Scully comes under investigation by Internal Affairs (derisively known as the tin collectors) after he kills his ex-partner who was one of the mayor's bodyguards. Temporarily reassigned, so that he can remain under the department's watchful eye, Scully finds that more than his badge is at stake when he is set up to take the rap in a deadly plot of corruption and conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the LAPD.

    " I started this series with Book 5 and like it enough to start the series from the beginning. Good thing as i might not have kept going if I'd started with this one Very cliche'd and boring writing. I hope he improves as he goes. I expected better from the mind behind some great TV shows. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Cooksey | 1/30/2014

    " Better-than-average thriller by Cannell. Overall I like his writing, but sometimes he's over the top. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sjfstudio | 1/30/2014

    " First book in the series. Fast paced and kept my interest throughout, no lag time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 1/29/2014

    " I love this series. I quite possibly have fallen in love with Shane Scully (the lead character). I would loan it out, but I can't bare not to have it sitting on my shelf "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debby | 1/24/2014

    " The Tin Collector's is the first in Steve Cannell's Shane Scully series. I think I've found another good source for police detective/crime mysteries. Right up there with Michael Connelly, John Lescroart, James Patterson, and Ed McBain, to name a few. I'll definitely be checking out the next book in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Edwards | 1/22/2014

    " This is the first book of the Shane Scully series. It is an entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Davehk | 1/18/2014

    " Surprisingly good for where he was at in his career with this character "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/18/2014

    " Fun and action packed. No, it's not great literature, but is that really what you were hoping for from the creator of the A-Team? Anyway, the story is solid, the main character is great, and you can't help but love Cannell's overuse of jargon-laden "cop talk." Very fast-paced, and Cannell strikes up a great balance between the mystery and the action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 1/11/2014

    " Good not great. Wanted to finish but could put down if i needed to. Don't care if i read the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/11/2014

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Shane Scully (first in series); cop kills partner in domestic quarrel and while being prosecuted stumbles on plan by rogue cops to do whatever is needed to help a movie producer land an NFL team. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 12/22/2013

    " Somewhat implausible plot, and his consistent recklessness got a little annoying, but a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmy Farrell | 12/5/2013

    " Not my favorite genre, but it delivered an entertaining, exciting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach | 11/25/2013

    " I thought it was an interesting story. Easy to read and kept me turning pages. Looking forward to more of his work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 11/24/2013

    " A great book! Its a cop story that has lots of twists in the plot, but is easy to follow. It is about a corupt police system in which the police and mayor will do anything to not get caught. Such a great story and a real page-turner. I would love to read more Cannell books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melani | 11/22/2013

    " It reads like a blockbuster cop movie - enjoyable, fast read but rather predictable and some characters are developed as if they will be part of a significant twist and then dropped (as if the author didn't know what to do with them). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 10/27/2013

    " Having to deal with "integrity issues" professionally myself, I cannot enjoy the horrendous culture in this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cat | 10/12/2013

    " Brain candy. A quick 2-day read. Lots of action, highly unbelievable. It reminded me of Stuart Woods' Stone Barrington series. I will not be reading any more of this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 9/16/2013

    " a quick, fluffy read. not sure if i'll read any more of the "shane scully" books, but i'm glad i at least read this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 7/14/2013

    " A good cop/crime buster novel that almost got a 5-star rating until it veered off into action-packed nonsense. Still, all in all, a good read. I would recommend it to fans of action crime dramas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcie | 7/2/2013

    " I like Mr. Cannell because he wrote the Rockford Files and I love James Garner. This book was fine once you got passed all the acronyms and unnecessary bad language. It was perfect reading for the beach. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donald | 9/12/2011

    " The title of this book refers to the Internal Affairs Division of the LAPD. Shane Scully (that's the protagonists name?) comes under fire for unwittingly disrupting corruption in the department that goes so deep that this has to be a fictional story. "
