River City Review

Asa Bradley wrote a wonderful review of the entire River City series here:

The nice thing, from the author perspective, is that she highlights many of the things I really wanted to come through to the reader.  It's nice to see that happen.

Thanks, Asa!

So, you think you know a little about the offier in the car with the flasing blue lights behind you? Read some Wambaugh, a little J.A. Jance, even some James Patterson? In Heroes Often Fail, you will find portraits of a department, some of its officers and politics. More importantly, you can see the reasons for and the development of the psychological armor that officers develop, often to the point of self destruction. The ripple of this single catastrophic case reveal the onslaught of emotions fealt by the family, the city, the department and the individual officers involved in the case. So what was that officer doing the part of the shift before he/she reached for the switch to turn the lights behind your car? Do you really want to know? Stay calm, present your license, registration and proof of insurance, listen to the lecture or sign the citation or both and everything will be just fine.
