Against the Law
From the Author of Cop Cohen
Contra Legem (Latin for Against the Law), is the sequel to the highly acclaimed debut novel, Cop Cohen, written by S. Michael Siegal. This novel takes place four years after the time Officer Harold Cohen becomes a police officer. In this novel, Harold is surrounded by numerous obstacles that weigh in on his mind. From an austere mother who does not believe that Jewish boys should become policemen, to dealing with dangerous criminals who want to see him eliminated for good, his commitment to marry the woman of his dreams, and finally, dealing with fear of unknown danger where someone else can be the hero but not him. Contra Legem promises to be a powerful, exciting, deeply felt and amusing novel of a Jewish man who became a police officer in this nontraditional occupation. A highly accurate portrayal of the day-to-day life of a police officer. The author, S, Michael Siegal, recently retired from nearly thirty-six years in law enforcement and dedicates this novel to all of the men and women behind the badge who daily serve and protect our communities. And, to the Jewish men and women who have entered into this nontraditional occupation.
