Dennis Murphy's New Book


After laterally transferring from the sleepy bedroom hamlet of the Town of Camillus Police Department, Officer Patrick MacKenna has a whole different learning curve to contend with...he rarely if ever had to pull his gun at CPD, but now he has a hard time leaving it in the holster...drug dealers, gang bangers, robberies, shootings and stabbings just keep adding up in his daily log as he tries to assimilate to the fast pace life of a city cop in an urban setting...what's helping in the transition is that he's lucky enough to find an eclectic set of SPD officers who are turning out to really be brother's and sister's in arms!

Favorite Quotes

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
