Officer Bossman, “Boss," a wounded World War II vet, has walked a beat in skid row for over 20 years, and he knows the people and the dark streets better than anyone. The regulars love him, and he loves them. But those who come into skid row to steal and hurt his people, quickly learn they made a big mistake. That's because there’s by-the-book policing and there’s Boss’s policing.

But times are changing; there’s a new breed 

cop on the horizon. They’re called The New Centurions, and Boss doesn’t like it.

"No one writes gritty as Christensen does."

"The author knows the mean streets because he's been there."

"Written by a veteran cop who lived it."

From the coauthor of On Combat and author of Policing Saigon and Cops' True Stories of the Paranormal. 

In this thought-provoking and highly entertaining book, bestselling author Loren W. Christensen (retired police officer) paints a vivid picture of the asphalt world of flesh and fantasy where hookers, tricks, and cops commingle, and sometimes collide.

The stories in this book—told by cops and prostitutes themselves—reveal the dark humor, poignancy, sadness, sordidness, and violence that is part of the world's oldest profession. Some will make you laugh out loud, others will make you wince, a few may offend, but all will educate you about the reality of street prostitution.


"Intelligently written so both you and the dog survive the encounter with as little harm done as possible."

"Loren is a self-defense expert and was also an Army dog handler so he knows this subject well. I narrowly escaped being a huge, vicious dog's dinner. If that should ever happen again, I now have the tools to effectively fight back. And now you can, too. Highly recommended!"

"The book is an easy read, just the right length, and covers the subject as well as anything I've read."

The fog crept in at the midnight hour, ominous, impenetrable.

Then THEY arrived ... silent and hidden …

… and began taking …

… parts.


Bestselling author of over 50 books, Loren W. Christensen presents a short story inspired by actual events described in his popular nonfiction book, Cops’ True Stories of the Paranormal: Ghosts, UFOS and Other Shivers.

Chapter 5: Fighting Back

Unfortunately, even responsible parents who warn their kids about drunk driving and other risky behaviors commonly send their children off to school without having what may be the most important talk of all: "What would you do if someone showed up with a weapon?"

In this unique guide, Christensen teaches parents how to work with their children - from elementary schoolers to teens - to develop an age-­appropriate plan of action that includes developing an awareness of surroundings and critical thinking skills. Within the pages of this book are ideas and techniques to teach kids how to feel safer at school; when to tell adults about rumors or threats; how to mentally rehearse a response to a shooting; and what to do when a shooting occurs: when to run and how to run; when to hide and how to hide; when to fight and how to fight.

Just as a fire drill prepares a child to calmly follow a path to safety in a burning building, the information in this book will train students to begin thinking strategically, defensively and offensively in case violence erupts at their school.


One of the most important lessons in this page-turner is that prostitution—far from being a victimless crime—affects everyone in one way or another. 

"... this one will make you sit up and take notice."
"This is not a book for the tender of heart."
" Eye-opening.”
"I'll never look at street corner prostitute the same again."

Bestselling writer Loren W. Christensen has written many well-reviewed how-to-do books. In Musings on Violence, Loren takes a different approach and conveys his thoughts on training for violence, surviving it as it happens, and managing the aftermath. He also discusses what it means to be a warrior—a martial artist, a cop, soldier, and citizen.

Loren has been a martial artist since 1965. He is an inductee into the martial arts Masters Hall of Fame and holds an 8th dan in karate, a 2nd dan in jujitsu, and a 1st dan in arnis.

A 29-year veteran of law enforcement (ret), Loren brawled one-on-one with outlaw bikers, an Olympic Games powerlifter, construction workers, anarchists, crazed dopers, and the violent mentally deranged. As a Military Policeman in war-torn Saigon, Vietnam (then ranked the most dangerous city in the world), he experienced, as he said in a recent interview, “twenty years of violent police work condensed into 12 months.”

In short, Loren knows what he’s talking about.

The only way to truly understand warfare across the ages is to recognize and appreciate man’s limitations. Looking at it from a physiological and psychological point of view, suddenly everything begins to make sense.  

The chariot. The Roman way of battle. The phalanx. Posturing. The power of leaders. Spray-n-pray. How and why early and nearly useless gunpowder weapons ruled the battlefield. Suddenly it all becomes clear.

Most books about school violence focus on anti-bullying programs and counseling; this book, by retired cop Loren Christensen, takes a hard, realistic look at teaching kids what they will need to know if a gunman walks into their school.

What was once unimaginable and rare is now, tragically, part of life, and it's all too easy to summon that terrible image of a school surrounded by police officers, emergency vehicles and frantic parents and kids. Shootings have happened at large, urban schools and at small schools in sleepy little towns with low crime rates, because all it takes is one disturbed person to turn a seemingly safe school into a grim statistic.

Do you work with someone who is unusually angry, antisocial, quick to take offense? If so, this person may be a ticking time bomb capable of horrific acts of violence on the job.

Written by bestselling author Loren W. Christensen, Surviving Workplace Violence provides you with solid information about what to do when gunfire or any other type of violence erupts where you work. This easy-to-read guide covers what to do before an incident to increase your safety and how to react when violence explodes.

Everyone at the rest home knew that Ed was pleasant, caring, funny, and popular with the women there. What they didn’t know was that Ed was also a hitman, and over the past 35 years he had eradicated 71 evil men and women.

He didn’t use a firearm because he believed there was already too much gun violence in the world. No problem. Ed knew many, many highly effective ways to do his job.

He had never made a hit personal until last night, and that one didn’t go smoothly. Could it be his 76 years were catching up with him? Was it time to retire? If so, he would never admit it.

Tonight’s unexpected job, possibly his last one, couldn’t be more personal and it would be his toughest yet.

This small e-book is my experience, just an average guy, albeit a little cowardly when it comes to all things medical, who caught a right cross cancer punch while standing flat footed with my guard down, faced my worries, fears, and negative thoughts, and jumped through all the hoops, some of them flaming, to find the experience unpleasant but not terrible.
