Two Writers: Opposite Sides of the Law
With Authors Dave Putnam & Earl Javorsky

After a 35 year career in law enforcement (homicide, narcotics, SWAT), Dave Putnam is now the author of six acclaimed crime novels. On the opposite side of the law, author Earl Javorsky spent 20 years in the drug business, was arrested twice and finally crawled into a recovery meeting.
