Crime Fiction for Christmas

Desmond-Ryan-10-31Cabbagetown resident and Residents’ Association Safety & Security lead, Desmond P. Ryan has spent almost thirty years as a cop with the Toronto Police Service. Having recently retired, this Real Detective now writes Real Crime. Fiction.
10-33 Assist PC, the first in his six-book Mike O’Shea Crime Fiction series is flying off the shelves. Why? Because this book is the real deal. It takes place in Toronto (sorry, no murder in Cabbagetown…yet!) follows real police procedures and is written in the language of real cops.  And who doesn’t love a good crime fiction novel to read over the holidays?
“What I most enjoyed about my uniformed days was never knowing what my day would look like, and being very thankful for that which I had, including a roof over my head and a meal on the table.  Says author Desmond about living the life of.
For those of you considering law enforcement as a career, I encourage you to read
10-33 Assist PC, not just because I wrote it, but because many of my former colleagues agree that it is a very honest, unabashed look at the life of cops, both uniform and otherwise. As Pete Lennox, a retired Police Superintendent wrote in his review:
“Like the situations it exposes and the policing vocation it describes, 10-33 Assist PC is not for the faint of heart!”
Look out for his next book in the series “Death Before Coffee”, available February 8, 2019.
If you like authentic crime fiction, Desmond P. Ryan is your author. Real Detective. Real Crime. Fiction.
