The Dick does for American Homicide Bureaux what Catch-22 did for the American Air Force. If assembles a collection of freaks, weirdos, psychopaths, and plain ornery gun-happy licensed killers and pretends this is what being a cop is all about.

The hero, a dreamer who has changed his Jewish name to Le Peters, is himself a fantasist and a cuckold, paid to assemble clippings about murders for the use of city detectives. After seventeen years of merely observing, he decides to fake the examination for promotion to a real dick ... exploding a tour de force of black comic savagery.
