Book One: Crime, conspiracy and corruption stalk the city.

THE WAR COMES HOME

THE SERIES DEBUT


        Roger Hitchcock's strange ability to foresee danger kept him and his fellow soldiers alive during his two one-year tours as an Army Medic in Vietnam in the late 60s. The former Golden Gloves boxer changed his plans to return to medical school when he came home to a very different America than the one he left. Instead, he becomes a cop in his hometown. 

      The times test Hitchcock. Rising violent crime, social unrest, and an out of control  drug craze are taking a heavy toll, especially on his generation. Yet, his mysterious gift of foreknowledge keeps on giving as he is assigned the eclectic, blue-collar Eastgate district as his beat. The young, single officer wins friends in high places (mostly women) and powerful, unseen enemies as he sweeps up crime in his beat like a new broom.

      A cultural commentary on the 70s from a different perspective with action, romance, intrigue, and flashbacks to battles, sex slavery and treason in Vietnam, based on actual events,  make for  in a solid, satisfying read.
