Cam Madden had a good job and a carefree bachelor lifestyle when he impulsively tried out for the police academy of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Now that he's mastered the theories of law enforcement in the academy, his education in its realities begins with field training and an ugly suicide call. Learning the lessons of the street leaves scars on Cam's ego and more on his body, but it's even tougher on his relationships with women. It doesn't matter until he falls for Karrie May, a paramedic, whereupon making it work becomes all-important.One Cop's Journey is in a sense every cop's journey, the story of finding his own place in a company of heroes, even if that company contains a disturbing proportion of bureaucrats, office politicians, and layabouts. Somehow the finest and the flawed manage to work together well enough to keep the barbarians at bay. Every Day.
