Overview

FINALIST - Book of the Year Awards, The Independent Author Network

A vivid, true-life tale of service, survival and sacrifice

This gripping memoir vividly recounts Al Moreno's rise as a gifted and fearless Los Angeles police officer, surviving gangs and homicidal situations in brutal urban war zones as he strove to achieve his personal and professional dreams. Packed with unforgettable scenes of both beauty and despair, it culminates in his vocal stand against corruption within the L.A.P.D., and the political retribution that ensued-a dirty internal investigation that unleashed the murderous vendetta of a violent ex-con from the Aryan Brotherhood.
