Book Excerpt:

Despite the blood
flowing from my side and my exhausted condition, we wrestled for control
of the weapon.

I rolled him
over, coming up on top, and pinned him to the ground as we continued
to wrestle for control of the Glock. I pushed his arm down to my left, held his
arm with my left hand and punched him in the face, which loosened his grip just
enough. I gained control of the gun. Now Tariq stared down the barrel of his
own weapon with me on top of him.

“So this is the end,
my friend?” Tariq asked as he looked beyond the barrel pointed at
his head.

“No, Tariq, this is
just the beginning. The ring?”

Tariq nodded in
understanding and held his hand up for me to remove my Academy class ring,
which I did and slipped it into my pocket.
