Reginald Sharpe served a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy straight out of high school, directing aircraft on the flight deck of the USS Shreveport. For the past fifteen years, he has been employed within the law enforcement confines of the South Carolina Lowcountry, first as a detention officer working in the county jail, later as a uniform patrol officer and to date as a warrant investigator, tracking down and arresting "wanted" people. As of the publication date of this book, he will have served over ten thousand warrants ("a record number" it has been suggested). Throughout his law enforcement career, he has served in collateral duties as a member of the Sheriff's Honor Guard (attending or conducting funerals of slain officers), and as a member of SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) and its jail counterpart, the TACT (Tactical Action Control Team).
