When we think of police stories we generally think of everything from jay walking, traffic stops or the police chasing bad guys. But would you ever consider the police ever having to deal with strange feelings, ghosts or bad karma? Well, that's exactly what you would read about in this book.
Dean presents readers with actual accounts of various officer experiences. Each account is a brief telling of a specific experience. Each officer is listed following their story. Most of these accounts appear to have taken place in the state of Michigan. It's up to you, the reader, to decide whether or not you believe any of these occurrences. Perhaps some of you would be able to relate to them.
Many of us feel as though we have a guardian angel watching over us. Dean has presented officers who have experienced bright lights which saved them from fatal bullet wounds to dreams that saved lives. Many officers learn to trust their instincts. One officer experiences an event where he is sent to camp where the perpetrator had been hiding. His instincts told him not to look in the last window. Luckily, when the perpetrator was caught he stated he was sitting at that window with a gun read to shoot.
Ghosts could be the reason another officer went to check out a disturbance of at an Inn. No one was there but the inn keeper. All doors were locked with the exception of one. The officer was called away from that particular door, but upon her return the door was shut and locked. The inn keeper had to let her in with a key.
Dean does an excellent job of giving readers many accounts of stories involving physic behavior, ghosts, signs and symbols to name a few. The actual police officer testimonials will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing tall. The weird and unexplained experiences take place in the midst of the death- defying gun battles, thrilling rescues, and heart-searing tragedies that police officers face every day. If you are a reader who loves police stories, then this is the book for you.
