About the Book
Author: Lance LoRusso
Genre: Christian fiction
“There are few things more dangerous for a cop than searching a building at night.” He was making his way forward with Pete at his back when he felt it. It was hard to describe, but it stopped him in his tracks, and his fingers and toes went cold.
Scotty Painter is the most respected member of his police department, having worked his way up from a street cop to deputy chief. After losing his wife, Christine, to cancer and giving his daughter away at her wedding, he now lives alone. His life as a cop is not easy, however, as he is haunted by the misery he has seen and the things he had to do to survive. One day, he finds himself sharing his deepest and most troubling thoughts with the only one who can truly understand his struggles and answer his questions. In a world far apart from his days filled with life and death decisions, Scotty comes face to face with his fears, his faith, and his destiny.

He wasn’t sure why, but Scotty felt for the first time that he was not alone. It was a strange feeling. Once, on the job, he had felt that way in a dark warehouse when he’d found a broken window while checking a building at night.
“118 to radio.”
“Go ahead 118,” the operator responded.
“I’m at 2732 Wertz Boulevard off Sammon with a broken window at the rear of the building. Not sure if it is fresh. Possible forced entry. Send another unit.”
In a few minutes, two other marked units pulled up with their lights off. One stayed at the front, and one came back to Scotty’s location. It was Pete Shona, Scotty’s former field training officer.
“What ya got?” Pete said in a whisper.
“Not sure. I’ve been off for two, but I don’t remember this window being out the last time I was back here. What do you think?”
Pete looked at the glass and spoke softly. “It looks fresh to me. See the shards still sticking to the edges? I think we’ve got us a burglar.”
