From an early age, Jeremiah Krone had a strong sense of right and wrong and of justice. In the fifth grade, he stood up against, Buzz, the class bully. When Krone graduates from high school, he applies to the police academy, is accepted, and graduates.
But his first call as a young police officer fresh out of the academy is a shock. And it’s what’s missing that holds the answers to the crime. Thrust into the world of police work, Krone navigates his way through his rookie year. He balances a budding love relationship with his drive to succeed as an officer in this coming-of-age tale.
Praise for New Blue
“Author John Drake has done it again. This time, a novel of a young police officer learning the ropes of his trade in a beach town in North Florida. The wacky escapades cops see in the course of duty is material enough for a book. With an enjoyable writing style, the authors introduce youthful innocence to the mix and masterfully produce a compelling story. I hope we see more of young Officer Jerry.”
—James H.K. Bruner, Author, the Bike Cop Trilogy
“Provides a realistic introduction to young people considering police work. A true rookie-eye view, from getting chewed out and nearly washed out, to persevering and succeeding. The path this new blue takes is honest and believable; it effectively shows the diverse nature of this amazing job.”
—Chief James T. Hurley, Fernandina Beach (Florida) Police Department
