Sample Chapter

At the station, Billy sat handcuffed to the chair across from the Sergeant’s desk. Billy looked around the room and saw thieves and drunks, battered people giving statements and two men in policeman blue, talked over a cup of coffee. At that time, a ruckus occurred at one of the front desks of the Precinct. Billy heard a long-haired, tattooed, tough guy yell obscenities at the police officer.
