In 1981, Wendell Godfrey graduated
from the University of Southern Mississippi with a BS in Criminal Justice. He
has served most of his adult life as a police officer with small, medium and large departments. His last law enforcement assignment was as the chief of police of the Florence Police Department (Mississippi). He is the author of Valley of the Shadow.
According to the description of
Wendell Godfrey’s book, “a thriller crime novel written by a veteran Police Chief like none other you've read.
If your idea of motorcycle gangs is limited to Hell's Angels and Bandidos, think again. If you think identity theft, kidnapping,
and missing children only happen in big cities and police stories, brace yourself. In a child abduction drama written by a
real cop, feel the cut of the knives and hear the blaze of the guns as outlaw bikers ride their way through a murder mystery
in which only superior police tactics have any chance to prevail.”
