Veteran Chief of Police Releases New Book


The nature of the career asserts that a detective can't be appreciated until he is the person under investigation.

In his new novel "Hidden Relationships of the Homicide Detective," author Herman L. Hinton, a retired deputy chief of investigations, explores how life choices can bring on disaster or honor.

"Life's about making good decisions, taking responsibility for our actions and being a positive role model for others," Hinton said. "I may have witnessed the most heinous crimes known to man, but I've also seen the strength of the human character."

His novel follows the footsteps of a high-ranking homicide detective who, after a crime is committed against him, is investigated by his own son. As the protagonist delves deeper into his father's life, he learns more than he bargained for about life, loss and kinship.

A gripping narrative, "Hidden Relationships of the Homicide Detective" shares insights into the importance of family structure, victims of violent crime and the justice system.
