Number one best-selling author C. L. Swinney has been a cop for almost fourteen years, ranging in assignments from patrol to undercover narcotics. The things cops do and see are certainly not for the faint of heart. We develop a sick sense of humor, but only to rationalize the fact that we risk our lives for strangers (some who wish us dead), enforce the law, and pray we go home to our loved ones at the end of our shift. Some wearing a badge drink or use drugs to cope, even go as far as taking their own lives. Others are heavy-handed or get caught stealing. C.L. Swinney chooses to write to deal with the stress of the profession. The poetry found within this collection is rough, sometimes unstructured, and may not suit all readers. However, it soundly portrays what it means to wear a badge and to serve and protect. As with all of his other work, C. L. Swinney will donate the overwhelming majority of the proceeds from this collection to the families of fallen officers and military more

About C L Swinney

Best-selling crime fiction (Detective Bill Dix Series) and true crime (Robert Pickton: The Pig Farmer Killer) author C. L. Swinney has been a cop for almost fourteen years. Working in narcotics, homicide, and patrol has afforded him great insight into the profession. Recent highly publicized events around the country caused numerous emotions to swirl within Mr. Swinney, forcing him to act. Earlier this year, he struck out to gather a collection of short stories, non-fiction and fiction, from men and women currently (or retired) working in law enforcement, corrections, and the military to share with the general public. His goal was to educate, enlighten, and provide a behind-the-scenes look at these proud professions. No profession is perfect, and mistakes certainly have been made, but the majority of those serving this country or the public strive to do right and risk their lives daily to keep this country and complete strangers safe. C. L. Swinney donates the overwhelming majority of the proceeds from his novels to the families of fallen officers and military members. The remaining proceeds go toward his insatiable coffee urgesshow more
