I think Ingrid Dean did a great job putting these stories together and it shows that not all police calls are for barking dogs and loud music. I'm guessing it took a lot for these officers to tell these stories and unlike one review on here I don't know one officer that would make anything up dealing with this subject matter and then put their name to it. I don't care what state these were in it's an AWESOME book! I would highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to read about a whole other side of police work that you normally never hear about. Thank you for bring these stories to us Ms Dean. I loved this book.

By nature and training police do not readily accept even coincidence without questioning it. Curiosity and a desire to understand and explain that which they observe become second nature. That makes this collection of the "unexplained" all the more remarkable and interesting. The author did an excellent job of assembling and organizing the personal accounts of many officers. Readers with a taste for the occult will enjoy these stories and share a sense of wonderment at the variety of experiences. The stories are short-- as a dessert they might compare to cupcakes to be quickly enjoyed with more to return to later.

When we think of police stories we generally think of everything from jay walking, traffic stops or the police chasing bad guys. But would you ever consider the police ever having to deal with strange feelings, ghosts or bad karma? Well, that's exactly what you would read about in this book.

Dean presents readers with actual accounts of various officer experiences. Each account is a brief telling of a specific experience. Each officer is listed following their story. Most of these accounts appear to have taken place in the state of Michigan. It's up to you, the reader, to decide whether or not you believe any of these occurrences. Perhaps some of you would be able to relate to them.

Many of us feel as though we have a guardian angel watching over us. Dean has presented officers who have experienced bright lights which saved them from fatal bullet wounds to dreams that saved lives. Many officers learn to trust their instincts. One officer experiences an event where he is sent to camp where the perpetrator had been hiding. His instincts told him not to look in the last window. Luckily, when the perpetrator was caught he stated he was sitting at that window with a gun read to shoot.

Ghosts could be the reason another officer went to check out a disturbance of at an Inn. No one was there but the inn keeper. All doors were locked with the exception of one. The officer was called away from that particular door, but upon her return the door was shut and locked. The inn keeper had to let her in with a key.

Dean does an excellent job of giving readers many accounts of stories involving physic behavior, ghosts, signs and symbols to name a few. If you are a reader who loves police stories, then this is the book for you.

This book brings to light many of the stories that the public won't hear. Truly amazing stories of officers life threatening close call encounters and how they survived these situations by unexplained phenomenon or divine intervention, you decide? I thought it was a great read. Glad it's available in an Electronic edition for my Ipad. Thank you to the Author for putting this book together. Everyone should read it.

I am reading this book for the second time, I got it two days ago. Hah!! I read too fast. I am buying one for my police officer brother and another one for my little brother, a court recorder. I cried when reading many of the stories...they were very touching. I enjoyed this book so much. Thanks to all of the police officers. Jeanne

This is the first time I have read a book that showed police officers from a spiritual perspective. This book gives a refreshing change from violence, police brutality and corruption. It shows police officers that truly want to help other people. Besides that, it is a wonderfully entertaining read. I loved it, I couldn't put it down.
