V.J. Cap was a New York City Police Department police officer for just under ten years.  He is the author of Cruze’s Quest.  According to the book description, “Henry Cruze grew up in the Caribbean Islands. He was raised by his father, Jonathan, and Sir Harold Gutterman, who owned the plantation he called home. His father and Sir Harold decided to send Henry to the Merchant Naval Academy in London when he was just eleven years of age. Loving the sea and the world in which he was part of as an officer and able seamen, Henry spent the next six years serving under Captain Peters—his captain, his mentor, his friend. Henry’s life changed the day Captain Peters was murdered by pirates. From that day on he made it his life’s work to cure the Islands of this murderous band. He would join the Island Defense Fleet, established by the governors of the Caribbean, funded and recognized by the English government to combat the rising evil the pirates readily inflicted. This is the story of Captain Henry Cruze and the fighting ship Quest in the service of the IDF.”

One reader of Cruze’s Quest said, “am not an avid reader but I do attempt to read multiple books through out the year but only to end up reading a few because of lack of interest. This book let me into the story and I was able to visualize every part of the story and I felt that I new each character for a long time. I would recommend this book to all readers no matter the type of reading you do, my kids are reading as I type this. Can't wait until the next book!”

From the History of the New York Police Department

The first attempt at forming a detective squad under the name of Roundsmen was made in April of this year; at which time a law was passed directing the appointment of one hundred and ninety-two additional men to the Watch Department to be designated as Roundsmen, forty-eight to be stationed in the First District and twenty-four in each of the other districts. They were not required to wear the Watchmen's caps, nor any dress to distinguish them from other citizens. The Captains of the Watch had the arrangement of their posts, which they were obliged to patrol continuously while on duty in search of criminals and also t discover and report any neglect of duty of any Policemen on their beat. Their pay was the same as that given to member of the Watch, and the pay of the Watchmen doing duty as Sergeants was fixed at twelve shillings.
