The Chicago Outfit has corrupted unions, casinos, waste haulers, City Council Committeemen, and even some cops, but Lieutenant Ed Slate cannot recall a judge being implicated. Now, heading Robbery/Homicide's fifty-four detectives on Chicago's north side, he wonders whose payroll His Honor, W.C. Hayes, is really on. His gut tells him that Hayes is dirty! There will be risks to his career, his life, and even the lives of his family. But his passion for justice, and perhaps a hidden compulsion to prove himself, motivates the former Marine. So damn the risks, he'll make the case!
Dale F. Shaffer served as a U.S. Marine, Ohio State Trooper, and Chief of Police in Ohio and Illinois. He earned a B.S. degree in police administration, graduated from the F.B.I. National Academy, and lived over twenty years in the Chicago area. Dale has served as an expert witness, a consultant, and taught police subjects on a part- me basis. He now lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where he drives his Corvette through the mountain roads, writes, and enjoys a more peaceful life. HIS HONOR is his first novel in a series, to be followed soon by SPOT OF BLOOD.

A very good read! Hard to put down once you start reading it! As a law enforcement officer I can attest to the accuracy of the methods and procedures depicted in this book. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading. I also recommend the rest of the series of Ed Slate detective novels, Spot of Blood and Souvenirs by Dale.
It was interesting to find out what all is involved in bringing about a conviction. And I found it an encouraging to read about a lieutenant who refused to give up until he saw justice served despite the risks to himself and his family.
This Fiction novel is THE very best I've ever laid hands on. In my opinion, this would be a superior movie and would surely keep the interest of all, with all the twists and turns of the story. Since the author has the background of a lifetime in police work, his understanding of the workings of the criminal and the procedures that law enforcement need to follow allows him to really keep you reading. A five star novel for sure. Dave Wenger of Florida and North Carolina
