New Fantino bio

Jerry Amernic, a 1980s justice columnist for the Toronto Sun, has written a biography for Julian Fantino, former Toronto police chief and now OPP commissioner.

Duty - The Life of a Cop recaps Fantino's 40 years in police work and will be one to read if it is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

This is Amernic's fifth book and he couldn't have picked a more controversial top cop to profile.

The Sun set up a weekly Justice For All column for Amernic following the publication of his first book, Victims: The Orphans of Justice, a 1984 Bantam release.

The Scarborough writer found a fan in Fantino (then a homicide detective) while writing the Sun columns and when a bio came to mind, Amernic got the call.

Key Porter Books held the book launching in downtown Toronto Friday night.

Another Sun alumni to add to the growing Toronto Sun Family authors list.
