    StreetCreds is a look inside the world of street gangs and the cops that work them.

    I worked the street for many years before I entered the Gang Task Force, joining it with the idea that I could rise to the level of violence of any banger I encountered - a really stupid idea. I wanted to "earn back" the respect of the citizens for the police; I grew up in this city, and I worked its streets the best way I knew how, feeling that I had a firsthand understanding of what the citizens were experiencing.

    Baroota is a fictional tale of Nick Hudson, an aging, retired cop attempting to get in one last mission to make a difference. He gets sucked in to an off-the-books black ops mission to rescue victims of human trafficking being sold into sexual slavery. He meets Nõnkos Zia or Nõn, a woman born in South Africa and a former victim of Muti-medicine - a type of medicine still practiced in South Africa that weaves the occult and human sacrifices into the locals belief system. She is also a victim of human trafficking.

    Don entered the workforce as a young man barely out of high school, full of enthusiasm and idealism. He soon received a reality check about corporate America. Raised in the middle class, he believed in the value system of an honest day's work for an honest wage. That by doing what was "right" and working hard, he would succeed. The Company Store, however, had other plans for him and his coworkers - the American working class.

    Zach Fortier is back with more true crime accounts from the streets. This time he deals with the subject of cops gone bad, including an account of one cop that made the FBI's ten most wanted list for a brutal, quadruple murder. It's hard to believe - and read - about so many police officers that fall from grace and make every mistake possible: theft, murder, fraud, drug abuse, and more. Not to mention the cops sent to prison, proving that " anyone is capable of anything given the right circumstances."
