Publisher's Summary

Miami's vice cops, move over. There's a new sheriff in town, rather a feisty Florida Highway Patrol Trooper named Floy Turner, who juggles motherhood with fighting crime. With refreshing authenticity and transparency, Turner doesn't hold back as she tells her stranger-than-fiction, true-to-life anecdotes of what goes on behind the badge in drug-ridden 1980s Miami when cocaine was king and her town housed one of the major drug hubs in the country. Whether it's Turner's first night on patrol facing the barrel of a gun, the bloodiest day in FBI History, hilarious undercover assignments, conversing with infamous serial killer Aileen Wournos, personally and professionally experiencing the wrath of Hurricane Andrew, and fighting the Miami cocaine wars with the DEA, FBI, and FDLE, Behind Her Miami Badge: Undercover, the Cocaine Wars, and Life in the Fast Lane is an action-packed audiobook that will bring tears to your eyes, either from laughing so hard at the humor or crying at the tragedies.

    Any additional comments?

    I was born in an age where women were teachers or secretaries or nurses. I always wanted to be a policeman much to the horror of my parents. Thank you so much for this great personal insight into being part of the law enforcement brotherhood. Loved every second of it. I want more. I did think outside the box and became a mathematician in the budding age of computers. Still wish I had been a policeman.

    Story
    "Note to Self: Don't Wear Yellow to Rob Banks"
    Where does Behind Her Miami Badge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was an enjoyable listen. It was performed well. I listen to forty or fifty audio books a month. This is better than many of them. So, in the top twenty-five per cent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Behind Her Miami Badge follows a woman's story as she pursues a career in Law Enforcement. It tells you about the rewards and the toll the field exacts personally.


    Have you listened to any of Lee Ann Howlett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first performance. The first thing when I listen to an audio book that I notice is the voice performance. Probably most people do.

    My first impression, to be honest, was I wasn't comfortable with her. But, I came to feel she was a very good choice. Lee Ann has good pace, and didn't try odd deep or high pitched renditions. Or weird accents.

    She added to the success of the work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Being away from family, the rapport between the men and women of Law Enforcement and their sacrifice.

    "Not Miami Vice, But Real Life"

    I enjoy true crime and detective stories. This book gives you a real-life look in on the life and experiences of female officer and some of her comrades. Parts of it were interesting and worthwhile, but unfortunately I found a lot of it to be hard to get through. I appreciate that the author was trying to be transparent with her job. As she stated, most of the work in the life of an officer is monotonous and boring paperwork. Not that she focused on that part of her job, just much of the book still seemed a bit trivial to me. I felt the narrator didn't really help the cause, as I thought she seemed rather bored herself.

    "Powerful heroine !"



    Loved the full cast, the accents, the ambient sounds. This was done immersively well! The stories are captivating and exciting, and the performances catch all of the subtle nuances that come from conversations so that it didn't feel like a book reading. I definitely recommend this. -

    Story
    "The work life of a brave female in law enforcement"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not unless it was someone very interested in working in law enforcement, and especially in Florida. If so, this is very informative about the life, expectations, friendships and bonds that come with the law enforcement jobs. It was a nice inside look at how difficult it is and what it takes to excel.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have gotten someone to narrate who could put more into it. I thought Lee Ann Howlett was boring and monotonous. She sounded like she was bored while reading it and didn't care about what she was reading.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lee Ann Howlett?

    I am not familiar with enough narrators to answer this.


    Do you think Behind Her Miami Badge needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    "Behind Her Miami Badge"

    Behind Her Miami Badge: Undercover, the Cocaine Wars, and Life in the Fast Lane
    : Floy Turner, Sherrie Clark



    A brave woman in 1980's Florida beginning a career in law enforcement. Floy takes us inside a male dominated work force. The listener hears tales of discrimination, heartbreak, and humor. I enjoyed this book, finding out what happens on a regular basis in law enforcement.

    The narration was well done by Lee Ann Howlett.

    "Behind her Miami badge"

    This was a nice glimpse into the life of a female Florida state trooper. I really enjoyed her accounting of her daily life on the force. At times I thought that it was a little long winded, but over all a very good read.
    I received this book at no cost for an honest review
