Kit has an exciting life. As a young woman, she joins the local police force and rises to the position of deputy chief -- unheard of in this Midwestern town, where policewomen are not accepted. But when she leads a small band of trusted officers in an investigation of corruption, Kit soon realizes that she is in over her head.
Planeloads of drugs are being flown into the area by local lawyers, prosecutors, and police officers, and a murderer has been set free because he has too much information on the city’s elected officials. Bag men and payoffs become a part of her investigation, and soon Kit’s life and her family are threatened. Kit has learned to rely on her trust in God to face the dangers of her profession, and when she retires years later, she sets off to become a missionary in a small fishing village in Jamaica -- only to find the source of the drug trafficking right at her front door.
This fascinating story is a work of fiction, but it is based on the facts of one woman’s thirty-year odyssey. From Corn Fields to Ganja Fields will hold readers in its grip from beginning to end.
