Mike McNeff was “Born in San Angelo, Texas to an U.S. Air Force family, his early years saw much travel across the U.S. and the Far East. Mike attended Arizona State University and Arizona State College of Law (now Sandra Day O’Connor Law School). He began his law enforcement career in 1969 with the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He has worked patrol, criminal intelligence, narcotics, and has been a SWAT team leader and commander as well as a hostage negotiator. Mike retired from law enforcement in 2009 as a Police Legal Advisor and an officer with the Chandler Police Department in Arizona. He has also been a Deputy County Attorney for Maricopa County, AZ and the Prosecuting Attorney for Okanogan County, WA. He is an experienced trial attorney in both criminal and civil cases. Mike started writing as a third career after he retired. GOTU is his first novel. He is currently writing the sequel to his first story along with two other novels about law enforcement and a non-fiction book about law enforcement for writers. Mike is married, has four grown children and seven grandchildren. He likes to cruise on his boat, fish, crab, hike, play guitar, shoot and of course write.”

According to the book description of GOTU, “When a drug cartel attacks a cop, the rules apply. When they attack a cop's family, there are no rules. Sergeant Robin Marlette's special narcotics squad has killed a dangerous drug courier and the brother of a prominent Mexican drug overlord. When Marlette's daughter is kidnapped as an act of revenge, it's a race against time to save her. Marlette and his team are very good at what they do-but are they good enough to defeat a drug cartel on its own turf? Written by a 40-year law enforcement veteran, GOTU puts you side by side with the law enforcement brotherhood as they battle the world's most vicious criminals. GOTU will have you rooting for the good guys and turning the pages well into the night.”

Praise for GOTU: "GOTU is an action-packed roller coaster of a story about a team of tough cops waging war on the biggest drug cartel in Mexico. The book has the hard-hitting realism only a SWAT cop like Mike McNeff can write about because he spent years busting drug smugglers crossing the Ariaona/Mexican border." -Bob Mayer, New York Times Best Selling Author and former Special Forces A-Team Commander "From the very first sentence, GOTU yanks the reader straight into the middle of non-stop action. McNeff's passion, credibility and real world experience is on every page; you won't be able to put this thriller down!" -Dave "Buck Savage" Smith, Author and Nationally Renowned Police Survival Expert "GOTU - An exciting experience which captures the reader and throws them into the heart of the action from the first page onwards...." -Paul Anthony, Author and retired British detective "Mike McNeff was always known as a cop's cop. He has brought his years of experience in law enforcement, along with his immense knowledge of the Southwest border to create a thriller that is as close to the real life drama of the war being waged against the drug cartels in Mexico as any publication out there. GOTU is action packed and a book you will find hard to put down." -Roger Vanderpool, retired Director of the Arizona Department of Public Safety and retired Sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona
