Anything You Say Can and Will Be Used Against You
Laurie Lynn Drummond

ISBN: 0060561629

Five Baton Rouge female police officers wear their badge with honor, courage and pride. Here are their poignant and fascinating stories that will have a profound affect on the reader.

Kate killed a man in self-defense and that action always haunted her. She learned how to deal with death, to use her senses to give her an edge and taught her the skills she would need to survive on the streets. Still she and her police officer husband die in the line of duty.

Liz remembers every moment of the gruesome traffic accident in which a vehicle plowed into her, ending her career and leaving her with a permanently injured leg.

Mona sees too much domestic violence but one case really gets to her when brother kills brother. Both were abuse victims, which remind her of her drunken violent dad. Mona’s anger affects her work and her husband and child to the point she’s ready to eat her gun.

Cathy first worked for Victim Services. Her first solo case involved a woman who woke up with a knife stabbed deep in her chest and a man attempting to rape her. The lead detective on the case believes the injury was self-inflicted. Cathy becomes a police officer and marries that detective. Years later the case is reopened. Cathy is the lead officer and believes that her husband was wrong.

Sarah works on a torture, mutilation, rape and murder case that affects her and her friends so deeply that they cross over the line. Sarah can no longer cope so she quits her job, and works as a UPS driver. Sarah soon learns that she can’t out run her memories.
