About the Author

Jerry Ardolino, author of the fact-based fiction: THE SHANG PIRATE LEGACY also writes non-fiction, true crime. His first book: EXTREME COP: CHICAGO PD was shown and quoted in the editorial section of PLAYBOY and has received numerous reviews and publicity. THE SHANG PIRATE LEGACY is Jerry s first fictional novel.

Jerry is well-qualified to write a novel about triad gangs, violence and global crime and as you will see herein: he is a true renaissance man and possesses something every writer of fiction needs: first-hand knowledge and experiences in many facets of different ways of life.

Jerry is an Ex-Chicago Police Officer who served approximately 5 years in the Chicago Police Department. He had the wildest, most violent career in the history of that which means, he s the wildest, most violent cop in the history of the world.

Jerry graduated the Chicago Police Academy in 1973, attended Chicago City College on a U.S. Department of Justice grant studying Behavioral Science and Law and graduated the nationally recognized combined Police

Science/Criminology Program of the Chicago Police Training Division and Northwestern University. And there is a lot more to this author than knowing how to handle blue steel, rough-up tough criminals, fast-swing a baton and a wheel a fast squad car. While on the department he became an arms and munitions dealer as well as a police and military leathergoods manufacturer. His business grew to large proportions in the first six months and he made the decision to leave the department. He branched off into the western leather business shortly thereafter and in the 1980s formed a separate company dealing in antiques, rare books, antique, swords, and continuing a tradition: fine jewelry. He is a recipient of the prestigious GIA Diamonds Certificate
