Pubdate: 3/12/13

New release! Here’s what the reviewers  have to say about this fast-paced memoir from a man who spent more than three decades as a water patrol officer and land patrol lieutenant:

Backcountry Lawman puts you right in the middle of high-speed boat chases (and crashes) to catch “monkey fishermen” who use hand-cranked telephone-boxes to stun – and poach – hundreds of pounds of fish with an electric charge.” – Woods n’ Water

“Along the way you find out about Buckshot the Decoy Deer, the busting of Amtrak for poop dumping, tire track tracking and why his [Lee's] advice to officers before opening day of turkey season was ‘Sit behind the biggest damn tree you can find.’ And between the flat out laughs is a glimpse into what can be a deadly job.” – St. Augustine Record

“As he [Lee] relates his experiences you feel like you are sitting beside him in his 18-foot fiberglass “Old Timer” patrol boat….Once you pick up this book you can’t put it down.” – Panama City News-Herald

See the author interview notorious poacher Roger Gunter for the St. Augustine Record and find out what monkey fishing is in the process:
