(Personal note - Now you know where my affection for writing dark characters and situations comes from. All my life, I've been surrounded by rough-talking cops and their stories. Daughters can go on as many "ride-a-longs" as they like. A writer too, my father prized his reports. He kept immaculate records of his cases - in duplicate. As a child, I maintained his home files, reading every terrifying folder before I slid it down into the metal drawer.)
Enjoy the last hot days of summer!
