About the Guest

Lieutenant Art Adkins is a 29 year veteran of law enforcement.  He began his law enforcement career on the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and then joined the Los Angeles Police Department.  During his 12 years with the Los Angeles Police Department he attained the rank of sergeant.  Lieutenant Art Adkins returned to Florida to finish his law enforcement career with the Gainesville Police Department.  He has worked a variety of assignments including patrol, detectives, administration, vice, bunco-forgery.  Moreover, as a sergeant he has supervised both investigative and administrative police units.  Lieutenant Art Adkins is the author of The Oasis Project.

 

According to Lieutenant Art Adkins, “The Oasis Project is my first publicized novel, but I have been writing for the last 18 years. I have received many accolades for The Oasis Project.  Midwest book review labeled it a "must read" and a "grade-A pick".  I received Detective-Suspense book of the year for 2008 from Books-and-Authors.net.  I have recently completed the sequel, Power Grid, with the same cast of characters and I am currently working on the third novel, Mind Games.   The detective-murder mystery genre has always intrigued me and I have woven a considerable amount of police procedural into the books.  Each topic is relevant to issues confronting society today and the reader can readily identify with the controversies which arise.”

A heavily armed cult leader refuses to leave his compound, threatening mass suicide by a hundred of his brainwashed followers. A neo-Nazi militant in a cabin hideout keeps federal agents at bay with gunfire. A baby disappears; his only trace is an ominous ransom call to his parents. Prisoners riot, threatening the lives of prison officers and hundreds of other inmates. How do you react? What do you do? What do you say? Your words, your actions can save lives--or lose them.”
