Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a cop? How about what it’s like to be a criminal?
In the world of crime and criminal justice, there’s always a good cop and a bad criminal. But which one is Gary Sahlin? Meet the man who was both! In this poignant, true crime memoir, Sahlin recounts his dreams of becoming a police officer after he served honorably in the US Navy; how he became both Good Cop & Bad Criminal when he busted robbers as a city police officer; how his life’s path changed due to several unfortunate events & some very poor decisions that led him to prison for 20 yrs.; and how he found hope inside with his unique approach towards rehabilitation. Navigating through the nation’s toughest prisons can be difficult for anyone—especially ex-law enforcement officers struggling with their own personal circumstances. This book is a riveting and emotional memoir about life on both sides of the law.
Gary Sahlin shares his experience, thoughts, and reflections of his time behind bars in the US federal prison system. More important than what he says is how he presents it: The stories carry more weight when they are told through anecdotes, mixed with little moments of introspection that give you insight into who this man is. This isn’t a textbook retelling of someone’s time behind bars; it goes beyond that to explore deeper ideas about humanity, morality and redemption.
