Publisher Comments:

After September 11, 2001, Las Vegas Police Sergeant Randy Sutton began soliciting writing from law enforcement officers-his goal being to bridge the gap between the police and those they serve, with a book that offers a broad and thoughtful look at the many facets of police life. Hundreds of active and former officers from all over the United States responded: men and women from big cities and small towns, some who had written professionally, but most of whom were doing so for the first time.

The result is True Blue, a collection of funny, charming, exciting, haunting stories about murder investigations, missing children, bungling burglars, car chases, lonely and desperate shut-ins, routine traffic stops, officers killed in the line of duty, and the life-changing events of September 11. Here, officers reveal their emotions as they recount the defining moments of their careers. Some of the stories include:

-Two cops' desperate search for a missing child feared kidnapped

-The revival of the one-month old baby who was shot in the face in a drive-by shooting

-A patrol officer's dramatic showdown with a hostage-holding gunman

-On-the-scene details of rescue and tragedy during the 9/11 terrorist attacks

Synopsis:

This powerful collection of true stories written by police officers--from murder investigations to bungled burglaries to September 11th--depicts not just the details of police work, but the heart and soul behind the uniform and badge. Martin's Press.
