Lemon Press Officially Releases Print Edition of The Cozen Protocol

Cozen Cover

Today, Lemon Press Publishing officially released the first print edition of The Cozen Protocol, a Milwaukee-based crime novel that I authored. I want to thank Lemon Press for their fine work and outstanding new cover design.

http://www.amazon.com/Cozen-Protocol-Mitchell-Nevin/dp/1936617188/ref=sr_1_1_bnp_1_pap?ie=UTF8&qid=1370139581&sr=8-1&keywords=cozen+protocol

Many current and former Milwaukee police officers have passed along comments regarding The Cozen Protocol. I am very appreciative of the positive feedback that I’ve received. I would encourage those who have worn an MPD badge to visit Amazon.com and view the print edition’s dedication.

My second novel, concerning the police and the paranormal, is slated for release in late summer or early fall. Readers who appreciate the individual characters that form the face of who and what Americans really are will especially enjoy this book.

Psychics Under Fire

Lemon PressSlate Magazine online recently ran an interesting article entitled, “Investigative Intuition: Do psychics ever solve crimes? Why do police consult them?”

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/explainer/2013/05/psychic_sylvia_browne_said_amanda_berry_was_dead_why_do_police_consult_psychics.html

The gist of the article is that psychic phenomena is generally bunk.

“… taken as a whole,” Slate’s Brain Palmer writes, “psychics’ visions are true just as often as anyone else’s.”

In a piece for his former blog, retired Milwaukee PD homicide detective Steve Spingola explores the predictions of Arthur Price Roberts — a Brew City man with “strangle talents.”

Since I am in the process of putting the finishing touches on my latest novel — one that delves into the world of psychic abilities — my guess is about .09 percent of some people experience premonitions. Some researchers believe these feelings are generated by the brain working a step or two ahead for the purposes of self-perseveration.

If you’ve had any experiences, good, bad or indifferent, regarding your contacts with those claiming to have psychic abilities, please feel free to comment or contact me at mitchellnevin@yamil.com

Print Version of The Cozen Protocol, Release of New Novel Coming Soon

Nevin Logo

Today, I am pleased to announce that Lemon Press Publishing, in conjunction with Wisconsin’s own Badger Wordsmith, has entered into a joint venture to publish The Cozen Protocol, an Amazon.com Breakthrough Novel of the Year Award nominee, to a print version and a second e-book edition.

The Cozen Protocol’s second edition features a newly designed cover that depicts the scene from the novel’s Jonathan Donnerstag homicide—a Milwaukee tavern owner killed with an arrow. The paperback and new e-book versions will be available shortly.

By mid-summer, I plan to release my second novel that delves into the world of psychic phenomena. Law enforcement officials are extremely skeptical of self-proclaimed psychics, although, in the past, those with paranormal abilities have proven some naysayers wrong.

Recently, psychic Sylvia Browne was roundly criticized for a 2004 prediction she made on the Montel Willaims Show. During this appearance, Browne told the mother of Cleveland kidnapping victim Amanda Barry that her daughter, who been missing for almost two years, was dead. Last week, Barry escaped from a Seymour Ave. home and contacted the police to report her nearly decade-long ordeal in captivity.

Psychics & the Police: What are Your Experiences?

seance3g

In The Cozen Protocol a small group of miscreant insiders work behind the scenes to orchestrate a series of events designed to influence the selection of a new chief-of-police. Cliques within organizations tend to center around the politics and personalities that seek to drive an agency’s agenda.

Set to be released in late summer or early fall, my next novel focuses on the intersection where law enforcement and the paranormal meet. The research in preparation for writing this book delves into the shadowy world of psychics, murder, charlatanism, debauchery, and politics.

In reality, are their legitimate psychics? Where does an alleged soothsayer’s abilities emanate from? Do the police really believe in clairvoyant inspiration or are criminal investigators at a dead end throwing-up a Hail Mary?

In the coming weeks and months this blog will shed some light on the upcoming novel’s plot. If you are an individual who has had some experience, for better or worse, with the paranormal or those who purport to act as go-betweens, please feel free to comment and provide some insight.

Renown Homicide Detective Profiles Milwaukee-Based Crime Novel

Cozen

Established in 1855, the Milwaukee Police Department has had its share of knowledgeable detectives. Only a few are as legendary as Steve Spingola.

High-profile investigations somehow found their way to Spin’s desk.  In the early 1990s, he was part of a team that assembled in the “Dahmer room,” on the fourth-floor of the MPD’s detective bureau, to sort through the grisly murders committed by its namesake.  Spingola also probed the disappearance of Alexis Patterson, a young Milwaukee girl who literally vanished off the face on the earth on May 3, 2002.

In his new print only edition book, Best of the Spingola Files, Volumes I & II, Spingola profiled my first book, “The Cozen Protocol,” a Kindle e-book available at Amazon.com.  Spingola and his publisher have graciously given me permission to reprint this article.
