Author John Henson's story is about one of the last cops to be hired using "old school" hiring standards and how this man went into his law enforcement career by chance. His main character reluctantly accompanies a friend to an open testing put on by a police agency. He had never seriously considered a career in law enforcement. He never assumed to possess the skills or abilities of those he viewed with profound respect and admiration. The testing event proved to be successful and he finds himself wearing a uniform and carrying a gun before he has time to think and back out. This was a time when Dirty Harry movies were popular and Joseph Wambaugh police stories were being read by cops all over the country as soon as they hit the shelves. This novel will jar your emotions. You will feel as if it is you driving the police car. It will be the reader who catches the villian. You will not be able to put this book down.
