First thing you notice is the cover art is just gorgeous and appropriate. It would look great on any shelf. The background history of the author is introduced bringing a subject to life that I had not considered being a veterans wife and sociologist, gang members trained by the military. The author covers his diligent research with interviews and experiences trying to educate others.There are pages devoted to Tim McVeigh and the Oklahoma bombing, 9/11 and other incidents of police investigations relating to the subject matter. This should be read by all law enforcement and gang counselors. Thanks for the opportunity to read this through a Goodreads giveaway.
