After losing his leg in a vicious life or death fight, Dallas Police Detective Sgt. Rene LaFleet must cope not only with the loss of his leg but also the agonizing decision to stay in law enforcement. Always in the front of his mind is the question, can he still do the job, or worse, is he going to get himself or someone else killed? Struggling with this dilemma does not put crime on hold. LaFleet and his team of highly skilled detectives must track down a serial rapist, and a serial killer that by all indications are working together.

Michael E. Witzgall is retired from the Dallas Police Department but is still an active Texas Peace Officer serving the law enforcement community as a tactical consultant and SWAT instructor. He lives south of Dallas with his wife and 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

My Review
Sentinel's Dilemma by Michael E. Witzgall is a story of Dallas Police Detective, Detective Sgt. Rene LaFleet. Rene Had lost a leg and not sure if he should stay in law enforcement. He felt that he was a hindrance to his co-workers that if they were in a bad situation that he could put his fellow cops in danger. There is a serial killer and serial rapist on the loose. Is it the same person or two separate?

This book was written somewhat differently as opposed to other police procedurals. The author wrote the book describing everything ie telling the reader what acronyms mean, street terminology, etc. The story does bounce back and forth with different scenarios with different characters. I liked how it was written that way, I could follow along with each scenario but could not figure out who the bad guy/guys were which was ok, I like to be surprised.

The author, because of his military and being a police officer, was able to write a book that encompassed his experiences. Written with intellectual depth, professionalism and humor, the book was enjoyable to read. I did notice that there were some grammatical errors, a revision, and a good proofreader would help that. I did not read the first book in the series, I do want to but that did not detract from my enjoyment with reading the book. If you like a good police procedural, a suspenseful story then this book is for you!
I give it 4 stars.
I received a copy of this book for review purposes only.
