There are no stories quite like those experienced by inner city street cops. Truth is most people will listen when a policeman tells of his experiences. But the stories most folks want repeated are not the ones about the hot pursuits, the shootings, or the prominent arrests. No, it's the bizarre, quirky, sometimes funny, sometimes sad stories that play out in the big city as a part of a cop's existence there. The fictional Casey Teel vicariously lives many of the author's real life police experiences. But Casey Teel is much more than a police story. It is an allegorical saga that spans several decades. The reader will truly experience history while following Casey through espionage training, to working with the French Resistance in WWII, and into his career with LAPD. The author's careful research and personal experience combine to create a saga that is historically correct. Every story either could have, or did actually happen. All settings are real. Police work doesn't attract philosophers, but being in the middle of life's most intimate dramas does create them. The ones you meet in these pages may challenge your beliefs, or at least they will make you think.
