Watching a big drug bust downtown from my car. Latino-looking guy in a BMW. A uniform stopped him, but he was immediately surrounded by a phalanx of plainclothes fuzz, one wearing a balaclava. Then another copper arrives with a drug-sniffing mutt, who goes beserk over the car -- in & out all...

This book’s goal is not only to entertain the reader, but to show how God’s grace works through the toughest times in life, change the hardest hearts, and forgive the worst of crimes. This is a pretty tall order, but author Jerry Jenkins knows how to cook up a great feast in reading as millions...

BART Police Commander Dan Hartwig stood in a Walnut Creek gas station as discreetly as he could for a man as tall as Mount Diablo. Square-jawed, buffed, he seemed the icon of the old-school super cop. He watched stoically as competing rallies across the street argued over the professional soul...
