***** “…it’s a real treat to read some ‘insider stories’ from such an experienced author. Besides the great detail, Mr. Hochheim is a gifted writer and story teller. I’ve already had two laugh-out-loud moments. He writes simply with wit and charm and some of his lines are even quotable. This is a very entertaining book from a person who deserves to be read. So run, do not walk and buy this book. You won’t be disappointed and I guarantee you will learn something…” – Badger Johnson, USA
***** “…..this book is filled to the max with gripping, fast pace true cop stories about Hock Hochheim and how he chased down criminals and arrested them during his long military and law enforcement career. “This is an up close and personal look at Hock’s on the job training ground-back when there was no SWAT, no backup, and often it came down to just him and the bad guy or guys! Some of the experiences are funny, some will make you cry and some will raise the hair on the back of your neck and keep you up at night! Few know Hock the way he reveals himself in this book. There is no pontificating here, Hock is a down to earth guy who has led an extra ordinary life. Right out of the gate, this book is action packed, and filled with adventures of every kind that I’ll never, ever forget. Truth is stranger than fiction, and often far more exciting as this book will demonstrate.” – Jerry Trone, Germany
***** “…..it was a long wait, but ﬁnally, Hock Hochheim’s latest book is out. Hock is a writer who chases down murderin’ no good, scalawags, and writes to tell about it. If you want to know what is going through a detective’s head while he hunts down murderin’ no good punks, this is the read for you. It’s funny, enlightening, and entertaining. What is more interesting, is that Hock tells stories in a great writing style, where you want to read more and more. At the end of the book, you are hoping to read that there is another one on the way. One of my favorite stories in the book is when he is hunting down a armed robber in a lumber yard with several other Texas law men, and it happens to be Hock that stumbles upon the bad guy, hiding out in a storage shed. The simple truth of it is that that could have been his last mission, but it wasn’t. You have to get the book to see how he managed to live through that incident. Hock tells of a time that most of still do remember, when cops hunted down and arrested robbers, and kids didn’t wear safety helmets when riding their bikes. Oh what a time. Reading about Hock’s adventures in Korea, and Texas brings back my own memories of times passed.” – Gerald Barnett Bourgogne, France
***** “…..this an interesting collection of ruminative stories by Hock Hochheim…as author of instructive manuals and several instructional books as well as some fiction, he is well prepared to provide these stories from his more than thirty years as a former Military as well as Texas Lawman, Private Investigator and Bodyguard. The trove consists of forty-six self-contained recollections. They recount specific episodes and mistakes from early training experiences, oddities such as “The (amusing) Barefoot Policeman” and other ‘routine’ experiences along with occasions where demandingly intensive detective work was required. An interesting chapter provides a look at a detective’s personal life, and many have the intriguing feature of offering a comparative picture of Korean ‘Police Action’ era law enforcement to that of today’s ‘tightened’ rules. This is a book that individuals interested in ‘all things pertinent to interpersonal combat or even basic street survival’, and especially Hock’s followers, will enjoy. An additional advantage for dwellers in today’s hectic world is that, because each story is self-contained, it may be ‘picked up’ at any time to simply read just a few pages. 5 stars, especially for those interested in real life aspects of a police officer’s life.” – John Ran, Book Reviews, USA
***** “…..Hock wrote a book about his experiences as a military, police and civilian law enforcement officer. I’m reading this one story at a time, you just sit down and turn a few pages and you get another glimpse into this world that most of us don’t get to see, and don’t tend to get the chance to know what the other side goes through. So many folks in my experience tend to say the word police, or security and then continue on like they just identified someone. Rarely do we get the chance to get it from the officers point of view, to really understand what the people following orders and standing on the front lines are thinking. I have had the great pleasure and benefit of spending a few days with this fine teacher, talking about martial arts, police and security work, good food and our favorite sci-fi shows. I like him. Solid guy, seems respectful all around. So for me, reading this biography gives me such a welcome insight. What’s a guy thinking when someone is shooting at him, what’s he thinking when he takes on that fight he shouldn’t have. Whats does he do when a superior officer doesn’t know what the hell is going on in a heated situation? Today I read; Chapter 27: This illegal immigrant thing. I just wanted to say that I am thankful that someone like Hock, had these experiences and wrote about them. I learn a lot, it leaves me feeling grounded. It leaves me a little more understanding of big institutions, like the Police and how that is a totally different thing than individuals, like police officers.” – Shawn Zirger, Toronto, Canada
***** “…..as always, you are a master storyteller. – Susan Fenstermacher Derderian, Providence, RI, USA

***** “…..the best memoirs of a policeman I have ever read,” – E. Romney, Spartan NC
