New York, NY — Author Bennett Hinds hopes to inspire social consciousness with the nationwide release of his new book, Where the Sun Didn’t Shine.
The squad’s all-out approach in eliminating gun runners and narcotics in the streets exposed squad officers to a high risk of death. Out of the 20 handpicked officers of the squad, only 17 survived, and none of them were ever promoted.
Readers can verify the validity of many events with the NYPD operational files as well as the New York Daily News, the New York Amsterdam News and the Channel 7 Eyewitness news. Where the Sun Didn’t Shine is Hinds’ and the PEP Squad’s story as they fought crimes in the violent streets of Harlem.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com
