Texas Police News is fortunate from time to time to be offered books and manuscripts to review,  by authors who are either in law enforcement, have served in law enforcement or have close, personal relationships with law enforcement.  Often we review these books from the time they are rough drafts, to completed manuscripts to the final, printed book.
We are happy to share these with our readers.
The books on this list fall into a very exclusive category -- books not only worth reading, but books worth owning.  Some of them may even change the way you look at the world of police officers and law enforcement.
Unless otherwise noted, the summaries are excerpts from the book -- either the cover flaps or the introduction.  Some books contain a link to the appropriate page at, Barnes & Noble, other book outlets or the publisher where you may purchase it.

The authors team together writing this fictional account of historical events surrounding a police narcotics scandal.  In 1953 the Houston Police Department was rocked by corruption at the highest levels.  The aftermath left one detective mysteriously shot and killed at the police station.  Another officer and a well-known doctor in prison.  A police chief discredited and many questions never answered.

Carolyn, a counselor and specialist in school psychology has written several read-and-learn together books for children and parents.  This is Larry's seventh work of fiction.  Visit their websites at:

"A powerful example of the true crime genre at its best.  The authors are the real deal at putting the reader right in the room.  A story of evil in a place you would never look."
H.L. O'Neal.  Former Commissioner of the Texas Commission On Law Enforcement
