Its a troopers worst nightmare. What begins as a routine patrol suddenly turns violent when someone pulls a weapon. Moments later, the trooper is downwounded or dead. Then, like a swarm of angry bees, every other trooper on the force mobilizes to catch the suspect. Whether theyre issuing a ticket for speeding just a little over the limit or conducting an all-out manhunt, the people who have chosen this perilous and demanding profession are rarely revealed as vividly or candidly as they are here. In Trooper Down! Marie Bartlett uses her gripping hell-for-leather style to paint a fascinating portrait of one of the nations most elite law-enforcement agencies. In interviews and anecdotes, troopers relate stories of narrow misses, breathtaking confrontations, strange and hilarious encounters with various crazies, and, most heartbreakingly, working the wrecksaiding the injured and dying in highway accidentswhile troopers wives and widows tell of the heart-wrenching realities trooper families face. Through this remarkable book, we not only comprehend the life of a trooper, we are unforgettably there.
