In Final Respects is the story of how the "job" affects the families of the police officers in general, and a murder affects Officer Doug Milligan in particular.
Being a cop was something Doug Milligan wanted since childhood, but his wife hates his profession.
A murder too close too home begins a series of events that could lead to the destruction of the entire Rocky Bluff Police Department as well as many innocent citizens.
"Damn kids!" Stuart Gibucg swatted a strand of oily, mouse-brown hair off his narrow forehead and stomped across the polished white tile floor of the embalming room and flung open the door.
Metal and wooden caskets, some open to display the recently departed at rest upon satin or velvet linings, had been tastefully arranged by Stuart's own hands in the large "holding area" area. A pale blonde head popped up from behind a gleaming oak casket. Giggles rippled from one side of the room to the other.
