Antioch, California – WEBWIRE

Change is constant, but when it seeps into reality, even all-professional sheriffs cannot brace for its impact.

Change is constant, but when it seeps into reality, even all-professional sheriffs cannot brace for its impact. What happens in an office when the chain of command changes without warning? Read the action in Hands Across the Sea,” a mystery-thriller fiction written by Brian Cook.

With the abrupt resignation of Sheriff Garrison Cottrell, he appoints Brendan Callaghan to succeed him as the new head of the agency. The transition could have been easier if not for some male egos and tribulations along the way. Along with the changing of the head guard, novel leadership styles and principles will test the characters of each law enforcer within the office. How will it affect their professional relationship? Will it affect the county that they are supposed to guard and protect?

In its exhilarating plot twists, readers have enjoyed the book. Donald Campbell, a reader who bought a copy in Amazon, said, “Although this is a work of fiction, it brings back many good and a few bad memories of my time in the office of the sheriff as a reserve deputy.”

Follow the topsy-turvy action of conspiracy, intrigue, and family in one fiction entitled “Hands Across the Sea.” Book copies are available at LitFire Publishing, Amazon, and other online book retailers.
