At the age of twenty-three, Barry Brooks was saved after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Shortly thereafter, the Lord called Barry from a quiet, small town in New England to South Central Los Angeles and the LAPD. As many deadly threats faced Barry on a daily basis on the streets of Los Angeles during the crack wars of the late 1980s and 1990s, his biggest battle would come not from the dangers of the street but from within the ranks of the LAPD. After exposing systematic corruption leading all the way up to the chief of police and city officials, Barry would endure a seventeen-year battle of retaliation which came very close to costing him his life, his liberty (prison) and certainly his career. However, God manifested Himself in overt and incredible ways during this time of trial giving Barry the strength to resist and at the same time grow in his faith. Although Barry's story reveals the sin of the LAPD's thin blue line, the main purpose of this book as revealed by God to Barry is simply to Glorify God.
