Once again, Curt Rude has drawn from his life experiences as a law enforcement officer and has written an outstanding book that I could not put down. I cannot remember the last time I read until 2:00 a.m. to finish a book! Rude has great insight that shows in the dialogue between the characters, as well a personal knowledge of the Casper, WY area. Along with the great story of law and justice, Rude inserts phrases that are unique and fitting. Very refreshing. Keep up the great work Mr. Rude. I'm eagerly awaiting your next book.
Many thanks for the five star rating! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Keep on a Reading!

I had an absolute blast writing Brand of Justice. It was sickening hanging out with a guy like Chief Pullet from JusThis. That was one seriously mixed up dude. Brand of Justice is more of a mashed up goofy deal that I've been told takes a shot. Now seriously, you didn't think I'd write something without taking a shot! I mean, I'm totally into seeing the cops for what they are and striving to make necessary improvements.
'Ingenious plot, characters using, crisp, insanely funny and original dialogue and endless surprises. Lawyer jokes, speech impediments, a serial killer that goes to church, and kids in a life and death struggle with the criminal justice system. As if that's not enough, Curt is still dishing it up to the last sentence.'

Crashed in Hastings. Great Hotel. Thanks Matt and Brittany. Saw Dawn on MyFox9, she's still doing a bang up job! Now I'm homeward bound for X-Mas. Hey guys, need any ideas for a great gift? Books are where it's at. Lets see here, 'Gone Girl' is a great, must read book. Oh, the first review is in for 'Brand of Justice'. 'Ingenious plot, characters using, crisp, insanely funny and original dialogue and endless surprises. Lawyer jokes, speech impediments, a serial killer that goes to church, and kids in a life and death struggle with the criminal justice system. As if that's not enough, Curt is still dishing it up to the last sentence.' Now let's see $2.99 ebooks and the printed books'll be around $8.00. I'm tellingya, ya can't go wrong. Besides, there is a money back guarantee if the reading is not your cup of tea. Check out my Website and let me know what ya think, and remember now, be careful, the worst cop in the world is going to work today and none of us know where that is!

Next consider the definition of hero.
Lets see here. Don't we run into problems when we apply a term to a group of individuals. Didja notice the pair of officers in Green Bay were veterans? Is that anyway for our heroes to act? 'Noble Qualities'? Weren't they hammering on blacks and lesbians?
How 'bout this. Lets have heros who have earned it. Isn't that fair for real heros out there? Real honest to goodness great cops and soldiers!
These guys were off-duty and got it wrong. What happens if cops are off-duty and make a mistake that lands a kid on death row? Then what? Can it happen? We all live under a criminal justice system that booboos at times. This goes all the way back to the witch hunts in Salem. Young girls were hung by the neck because they had moles that were determined to be somehow sinister. I was touched by this. I went to Salem and was really moved by the whole experience. That feeling, angst for these girls lingers in a person and then before ya know it you're writing 'Brand of Justice'.
|Flowers are left to this day by folks who figure the jury got it so wrong.|
|A pious man demanded the girls be hung and the court went along with it. Does that strike a nerve?|

Gotta say . . . I'm proud of my latest effort. With 'JusThis', folks felt it was strongly written but couldn't happen. A police chief getting involved in a rape of a small town gal? Naa, never happen. A police chief hanging on the internet during his tour of duty. Naa, Rude's just got a good imagination. Ya right.
'Brand of Justice' looks at how the criminal justice system can get it so wrong. Arron Hernandez was over charged and'll walk, a free man. Ya think? Well that's how I'm looking at it. I really hope 'Brand of Justice' inspires folks to set down and discuss the issues that emerge in it. It's a matter of life and death and Imma keeping it as cheap as I can.
Okay . . . enough of that I told ya so deal!
So lets see hear. I was a cop for thirty years. I seen the good, the bad and the ugly in a profession that has so much trust placed on it. I write stuff that I know is spot on. I been there. So pick up a copy of 'JusThis' if you wanna know what's going on in the mind of a rapist. Pick up a copy of 'Brand of Justice' if you wanna know how innocence is hammered by those players in the criminal justice system.

I've put together a story that tip toes in the direction of bullying, looks at the state of mind of an evolving mass killer, a considerate serial killer that was forced to do it as well as cops picking on kids. Oh wait. There is some domestic violence in it. The story comes wrapped up in teenage angst. So who should read this? Just folks who don't wanna live with their heads buried in the sand. The story . . . Brand of Justice is currently being rolled out so hang on. The paperback should be available anytime soon. I'll keep ya posted. Oh-huh, did I mention the story also involves a kid who gets screwed by the criminal injustice system?
