Life on the Edge: The Inside Story of the RCMP is the only book if its type ever written by a civilian permitted to ride along and observe working members of the front lines.  It offers an unprecedented, behind-the-scenes look at the RCMP in action.  It includes real-life policing situations and first-person commentary of members themselves, both regular and civilian.  The author also took part in training exercises such as ship boarding/drug interdiction, weapons (both real and virtual), police dog training (acting as quarry!) – and much more.  In addition to highlighting the colourful history of the Mounted Police, this book presents a realistic snapshot of the Force.  From recruiting, Depot, Telecoms, Emergency Response Team, and Dog Services to the Tactical Troop, Air Services, and the on-the-road policing, Life on the Edge takes an authentic look at what it means to be a member of the RCMP.
