THE BLUESUIT CHRONICLES
John Hansen Historical Crime Fiction Novels
Whenever the world starts falling apart, there are always those who hold the line for others, no matter what. So it was with the new officers of the Baby Boom generation, who returned from Vietnam and became police officers, manning the 'thin blue line' as generations before them did, except this time they go from being called 'baby killers' by the Left to being called 'pigs' by the same people, yet they continue to serve and protect the deserving and undeserving alike.
The Bluesuit Chronicles is 'historically correct,' set in the political, social and economic backdrop of the 1970s. The characters become more developed with each book as the series progresses. Every book leads to the next, yet each is written to stand by itself as a solid, satisfying story that leaves readers feeling good and wanting to read again. Many readers buy and read the electronic version and buy the printed versions for their home libraries. Highly recommended by a growing readership, currently rating 4.8 stars out of 5 at Amazon.

It is 1970, and the handwriting is on the wall: the war effort in Vietnam is winding down to an inevitable and humiliating loss to communist forces. Veterans begin coming home in large waves, to find their country changed while they were away, fighting for freedom. In the coming decade, America will be rocked by economic, political, military, religious and cultural scandals. Unlike any other time in history except for the post Civil War era, violent crime, murder, robbery and rape skyrocket. Betrayal and scandal prevails in every sphere of American life, time-honored cultural mores and values are openly scorned and mocked, drug abuse of every kind is glorified and encouraged by celebrities, well known public figures, trusted media personalities, resulting in heavy devastation of the Baby-Boom generation.
