One chance to be a hero.

Jim Lord always knew he wanted to be a cop. But getting stuck working as a school resource officer after a tour in Iraq isn’t what he pictured for his life. Still, he manages to find a sense of purpose, as well as love, at Portage High . . . until a moment of cowardice strips it all away.

Undone emotionally and professionally, Jim spirals into a drunken depression before a friend pulls him back from the brink. Determined to usher in a new chapter, Jim embarks on a journey of self-discovery that leads him south. Along the way Jim is confronted by forces that make him face his internal demons and push him to prove he’s a man of action.

Brimming with dynamic characters and scenery, Jim Lord is a stirring novel that asks what it takes to be a hero.
