Life can change in flash, or in Detective Captain Jeffrey Corrigan's case, as well as for his sidekick, Lieutenant Mike Price case, their lives changed over hours of torture.
And they survived...but only after a long and hard road, as any disabled person can attest.
Things like a quick shower, pumping gas, running a quick errand, or even attending to basic hygienic needs, are some of the things that we take for granted—things that take planning for the disabled.
But life does go on, and Jeffrey and Mike see to it that it does.
Never in his wildest dreams had Jeffrey imagined himself in an SUV. Not that there was any wrong with an SUV, but it just wasn’t his vibe. Then again, being ambushed and beaten to near death was something he never consciously thought about, otherwise he’d never have been a cop. It was a risk he took every day for decades, and that day came and went. But he was alive, and now thanks to Abbie’s prodding— or maybe threats— he was finally working, taking on cold cases. But self-pity and negative musings still plagued him. It had to stop.
