by Christopher Wihbey Sr. View author's profile page

Overview


After college and a stint in the military, Conner Phoenix finds himself on a law enforcement career path. Conner is driven to police work. Like most young and aspiring police officers, Conner has tremendous respect for our current law enforcement representatives who operate under such harrowing scrutiny. He also has a very traditional ideal of what a police officer looks like and how they represent their community. This first book in the Conner Phoenix series, takes the reader from the Police Academy to the streets. The new reality is that Cadet Phoenix finds himself in a quagmire of disappointment and confusion in the criminal justice system right at the beginning of his young and promising career. The Millbury Police Department and its locker room drama continue to unfold until Conner is forced to enter into a labyrinth of special assignments and undercover work in order to expose the local criminal justice system for what it is, corrupt. Jane Kennedy, a Special Investigator for the States Attorney's Office, asks Conner Phoenix to do the impossible. She wants him to Infiltrate and expose potential corruption at the highest levels of justice, as well as turn state's evidence on his friends and coworkers in order to out wayward cops. Its stories like these that distort the 'The Thin Blue Line' of police loyalty to 'The Faded Blue Line'. Loosely based upon some true to life events, this story will take you on a wild ride of ups and downs in the adventures of Officer Conner Phoenix.
