Veteran State Police investigator, Lieutenant Travis "Tag" Gaspard, after a week with his new love interest in Key West, has decided that retirement from fighting crime is imminent. However, a phone call from the head of Louisiana State Police postpones his immediate departure from the agency. The Special Investigations lieutenant is tasked with assisting a local sheriff's office in a murder probe, one that involves the death of a fellow trooper's wife.
As "Tag" enters the ongoing investigation two things become readily apparent. First, he totally disagrees with the direction of the investigation, which causes an uncompromising relationship with the local cops. And secondly, he's caught up in a political power struggle that meanders from Baton Rouge all the way to Washington, D.C.
His seemingly abrasive relationships with other sections of the law enforcement community, combined with political roadblocks that hinder the truth, present its own set of unique challenges as the investigation unfolds. Follow the story as the author chronicles a south Louisiana police investigation that begins with a small town homicide and ends with national security ramifications.

About the Author

T.G. "Tommy" Joffrion was born in 1959 and raised in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. In 1983 he began his career with the Louisiana State Police assigned to Troop A in Baton Rouge. In addition to patrol duties, he was a member of the State Police SWAT team and in 1991 received the prestigious "Trooper of the Year" award. He retired from the department as the Executive Officer at Troop A.
He is married to the former Holly Talbot and is the father of four children: Laney, Justin, Morgan, and Peyton. He continues to live across the street from the home where he was raised, on the banks of Bayou Lafourche. Hunting, fishing, and the greatest game ever invented, golf, are his pastimes. In his later years, his three grandchildren have broken through the armor surrounding his heart.
