|“Kim Thomas has proven himself to be a fine detective and his writing is filled with a gritty, street level perspective of the daily business of putting your life on the line for your community. Kim captures the ever-changing and fast-paced nature of emotions and events that fill a street cop's everyday work.”|
— Jerry Keller, Former Las Vegas Metro Police Department
Sheriff and Director of Security, Wynn Las Vegas
Cam Madden had a good job and a carefree bachelor lifestyle when he impulsively tried out for the police academy of the Las Vegas PD. Now that he's mastered the theories of law enforcement his education in its realities begins with field training and an ugly suicide call.
Learning the lessons of the street leaves scars on Cam's ego, but it's even rougher on his off-duty relationships with women. It doesn't matter until he falls for Karrie Mae, a paramedic, whereupon making it work becomes all important. Their romance grows in a world of burglars, bums, purse snatchers, drug dealers, and homicidal idiots, no two of them alike but each to be dealt with according to endless regulations, some of which cannot work without being severely bent.
One Cop's Journey is in a sense every cop's journey, the story of finding his own place in a company of heroes. Somehow the finest and the flawed manage to work together well enough to keep the barbarians at bay. Every day.
