International Awards for "Police Wife," 2nd Edition Out in Jan. 2017

My updated and revised second edition of the book Police Wife: The Secret Epidemic of Police Domestic Violence is coming out in early January 2017. The first edition picked up these international book awards:

- American Society of Journalists and Authors' Arlene Book Award
- Hollywood Book Festival non-fiction book award (runner-up)
- eLit Book Awards (silver)
- INDIEFAB Book of the Years Awards (bronze)
- Next Generation Indie Book Awards (finalist)

"Excellent job.... An important read."
- Det.  Albert "Bud" Seng, PhD, Retired, Tucson Police Department, Arizona

Police Wife takes you inside the tightly closed police world and one of its most explosive secrets: domestic violence in up to 40 percent of police homes, which departments mostly ignore or let slide.

The second edition includes the gripping new police wife memoir of journalist Amy Morrison, the first-ever international survey of police departments on the issue and eye-opening info from never-before-released police documents.
