Dale F. Shaffer has “served as a U.S. Marine, Ohio State Trooper, and Chief of Police in Ohio and Illinois. He earned a B.S. degree in police administration, graduated from the F.B.I. National Academy, and lived over twenty years in the Chicago area. Dale has served as an expert witness, a consultant, and taught police subjects on a part-time basis. He now lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where he drives his Corvette through the mountain roads, writes, and enjoys a more peaceful life.”  Dale Shaffer is the author of His Honor, Spot of Blood, Souvenirs: A Detective Ed Slate Novel and Street Justice.

According to the book description of His Honor, “The Chicago Outfit has corrupted unions, casinos, waste haulers, City Council Committeemen, and even some cops, but Lieutenant Ed Slate cannot recall a judge being implicated. Now, heading Robbery/Homicide's fifty-four detectives on Chicago's north side, he wonders whose payroll His Honor, W.C. Hayes, is really on. His gut tells him that Hayes is dirty! There will be risks to his career, his life, and even the lives of his family. But his passion for justice, and perhaps a hidden compulsion to prove himself, motivates the former Marine. So damn the risks, he'll make the case!”

According to the book description of Spot of Blood, “Lieutenant Ed Slate and Sergeant Joe Barona in Chicago's new Major Crimes Section catch a case without a body, just a spot of blood. It appears the missing medical student had just stepped out for moment, as her jacket, purse, and car keys are at her computer desk. Slate and Barona develop three strong suspects, but without a body and with little forensic evidence, how do they make the case? Ed Slate has a passion for justice and, perhaps, a hidden compulsion to prove himself.”

According to the book description of Souvenirs: A Detective Ed Slate Novel, “One by one, attractive professional young women living in Chicago's Gold Coast have been found raped and murdered in their beds. Somehow the killer, or killers, manages to leave no evidence. Lieutenant Ed Slate and Sergeant Joe Barona, in the newly formed Major Crimes Section, begin to notice similarities in the crimes and take on what they suspect is a serial killer case. Dale F. Shaffer served as an Ohio State Trooper, and Chief of Police in Ohio and Illinois. He earned a degree in police administration, graduated from the F.B.I. National Academy, and has served as an expert witness.”

According to the book description of Street Justice, "Detective Lieutenant Ed Slate keyed into the Major Crimes office in Area 3 on Chicago’s north side at 6:30 a.m. after another restless night. His years in law enforcement were taking a toll. It would take more than his usual Starbucks and Danish to fuel him this morning. Given the current list of unsolved cases on his whiteboard, why were the words “ . . . ensuring the right of all to liberty, equality and justice” from the Law Enforcement Code of Conduct playing inside his head? And what about the passion for careful, thorough detective work that had consistently fed his soul throughout his career? Slate sensed his need for a revived passion for justice."
