About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

  1. Without going into a lot of background, I have been intensely studying Islam for about 6 months, and it would be hard to describe why they do it, but I actually get it. At they very core of the issue is that Muslims are COMPLETELY religious people in a way VERY few Americans can begin to understand (since we are now so very secular), and their religion gives them few guaranteed options for getting into heaven – except physical Jihad.

    A good book that helps you get a good understanding is “No God but One: Allah or Jesus?” by Nabeel Qureshi. Read or listen (Audible) to the book, and you will be better informed than most. If you don’t have an Audible account already, I can give you a free Audible audiobook if you get in touch with me.

      Thank you, Lloyd’s for reading along with me. The MOTIVE A MYSTERY part of the headline is purely a jab at our police and news agencies, who are willfully blind to Islam’s codified doctrine. Like you, I have been studying and reading about Islam for years. Three of my books center around Islam’s history. Not many people know anything about that.

      Congratulations on educating yourself. Would that more people in positions of authority over here would take the time and energy necessary to accomplish that.

  2. He displaced his anger at enduring years of bullying and racism. He was too cowardly to kill anyone. That’s why he didn’t use enough explosives to kill anyone.

    A real lone wolf terrorist would have used more explosives. So I would judge Rahami mentally ill because the terrorist label does not fit.

    YMMV
