Retired Sergeant Darren Burch takes you on a 30-year journey of dark, humorous and depraved cases from his experiences as a patrol officer, sex crimes detectives, and night detective in homicide, starting with his harrowing teenage encounter with a fatal car fire in Twisted Metal, followed by morbidly funny and outrageous stories, each more twisted than the last.
Review – “Darren Burch spent 30 years in law enforcement and has seen some incredibly rough, tough and laugh-out-loud stuff on the force. So, the question you’re probably asking is, why should I read another book about the Thin Blue Line?
Let me warn you now…this is NOT your typical “cop” book. Burch’s “Twisted Tales” offers unique insights into humanity’s dark and twisted side, and it is a pure joy to read. While the Tales never lose sight of a police officer’s first-priority – to protect and serve – it’s filled with poignant, funny and terribly tragic stories that all end with an amazing and unpredictable twist. Now the only question that remains: Who plays Darren in the movie?”

“Great read, very interesting and all true….amazing!!!”This book is a great read! I did not put it down until I finished it! The stories were fascinating and amazing. I’ve known Darren for a long time and had no idea that he was a hero. He is one of the most compassionate and modest people I’ve ever met. He really opened my eyes to what is expected of police officers, the nature of people in general (at their best and worst) and how strange life can be. Thank you for writing this book and for being such a caring and dedicated public servant! Jennifer Blohm.
