TopShelf Magazine has nominated In the Line of Duty for their 2020 Books Awards. What an honor! After all, the people who nominate books are prominent members of the publishing industry—agencies, publicists, publishers, TopShelf scouts, and Insider members.

In the Line of Duty sheds light on the human side of those who serve in law enforcement. Sadly, there are too many who hate those with a badge and crimes against cops have become all too prevalent in the news. This crime novel gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at the people who serve their cities selflessly. Readers will experience heart-wrenching loss along with the members of the Stiles police department when one of their officers is shot down in the line of duty. They will also feel triumphant in the face of evil as they stand united in the pursuit of justice.

In the Line of Duty is available in e-book, paperback, hardcover, and audiobook.

“Fans of crime fiction will be moved and enthralled by In the Line of Duty, as much an action-packed mystery as it is a heartfelt tribute to police who give up their lives to protect others.”

    I have just started reading your books. I truly enjoy them. I am glad to hear about this award. I wish we would see and hear more positive stories about those in law enforcement from the media. I look forward to more from you.
