Sorry, it’s not the beloved Christmas story we read with children or grandchildren on our knee.

This is my present to my readers and followers and it’s anything but a Norman Rockwell night.

It follows my central character, Detective Will Diaz, and his buddy RJ, and two other police officers as they attempt to apprehend a murderer on Christmas Eve.

In a lot of respects, the story is true. The murder happened exactly as I lay it out here. The take down happened also, but what I did was I took two separate incidents, tossed them in the blender, and came out with this. The story is part of my novel, The Cross and the Badge.

Because of its length, I’m making it so you can download and read it.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas. God bless.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Like my blog and stories, check out my novels available on Amazon. I have two out right now, The Cross and the Badge, and Against Flesh and Blood. A third novel, The Judas Tree will be coming out soon. Click on the novel names to be taken straight to them.

As always, thanks for dropping by and for your support. God Bless.
