A "vertical coffin," in SWAT-team parlance, is a doorway, a spot where police officers raiding a building are most vulnerable to gunfire. Several characters are killed in doorways in Stephen J. Cannell's latest crime novel featuring LAPD detective Sgt. Shane Scully. The first is Deputy Emo Rojas, gunned down when he tries to arrest a man rumored to be stocking assault rifles and military explosives in a tract house in Agoura Hills.
