D/C Mike O'Shea, a young cop with a knack for working hard and following hunches, is on the verge of cracking a prostitution ring when an undercover from another unit burns him. With only days left before their pimps shuttle the girls out of the country, Mike pushes his team into overdrive. Hours later, with too little information, sleep, or luck, the unthinkable happens.
And now, the chase is personal.
In the first of the Mike O'Shea Series, 10-33 Assist PC draws us into the dirty world of human trafficking through the eyes of the cops who put their lives on the line every day to shut it down.
For almost thirty years, Desmond P. Ryan worked as a cop in the back alleys, poorly-lit laneways, and forgotten neighborhoods in Toronto, the city where he grew up. Murder, mayhem, and sexual violations intended to demean, shame, and haunt the victims were all in a day's work. Whether as a beat cop or a plainclothes detective, Desmond dealt with good people who did bad things and bad people who followed their instincts. And now, as a retired detective, he writes crime fiction. Desmond now resides in Cabbagetown, a neighborhood in Toronto where he is currently working on The Mike O'Shea Series and The Mary-Margaret Series, both published by Level Best Books.
