As is our habit, during the week in which ceremonies are held in the D.C. area related to Police Week, we offer our newest novel for free in honor of the people who make up the "thin blue line".
"The Resurrection of Sergeant O'Bannon" is the fictional story of Metropolitan Police (D.C.) J.P. Waterman's closing of the open case of the murder of MPD Sergeant Gerald O'Bannon, who was found shot to death and face down in Rock Creek by his 11-year-old stepson on July 10th, 1962.
The story opens on July 20 1994. The stepson, Peter Louis Gavin, is now a detective working Robbery out of the Georgetown precinct. Gavin responds to a robbery alarm, and when he arrives he discovers it has turned into a robbery-homicide.
Waterman responds with his partner Kurt Williams, and they among other things recover the gun ditched by the fleeing robbers.
When ballistics are run, the gun turns out to be the one which killed O'Bannon 32 years before; and the game is on.
The book is available exclusively on Kindle. God bless our peace officers.
