Author's Debut Action-Adventure Novel to Benefit Law Enforcement Training Foundation
Emery's backgrounds come together in the fact meets fiction world of Close Follow, featuring reluctant hero Trevor McCowen. McCowen, a successful financial planner by day, trains with law enforcement and works armed security nights and weekends. Nothing too dangerous—the occasional "close follow," investigation into vandalism, VIP escort, and some wild stories to tell. That is, until the son of a longtime client unwittingly launders money for an international drug dealer, pulling Trevor into a complex web of post-9/11 federal bureaucracy and high-stakes operations that culminate in a life and death situation involving a family member that makes Trevor question everything he thought he believed.
From the death of small towns in America's Rust Belt, to the international drug trade, to the complexities of Trevor's home life, to the bureaucracies of federal, state, and local law enforcement, Close Follow takes you on a fast-paced journey into the world of high-tech weaponry and training reminiscent of Tom Clancy and Paul Christopher, with one important difference. Trevor McCowen is no slick John Ryan or John "Doc" Holliday. More akin to F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack, he is an atypical hero just ordinary enough to be dangerous.
Based on extensive research, interviews, and real-life experiences with law enforcement and military veterans, and taking place on the streets and in the towns in northeast Ohio the author knows so well, Close Follow is a reality ride into a world that most of us wish was a fantasy.
A portion of the proceeds from Douglas Emery's debut novel will go to support the North Coast Peace Officer Training Foundation (https://www.ncpotf.org/
