Welcome to Police Procedural Mysteries

Police Procedural

Police Procedurals focus on the police investigation of a crime.  Readers can expect a behind the scenes look at police work and often, a look into the lonely life of the detectives.  Police Procedurals can be hardboiled and gritty or cozy and sweet, depending on the author.
