Kevin Meher: Cop without a badgeMay 27th, 2009 - 8:26 pm ICT by GD
“Cop Without a Badge: The Extraordinary Life of Kevin Maher” is quite a gripping story by Charles Kipps. This fact paced thriller is full of action as it unfolds the story of Maher’s life. Kipps calls Maher an “excitement junkie”, who was addicted to fast cars in his early teens. Maher came from a broken home and he was on his own in the growing up years of adolescence. When the police caught Maher (then seventeen) fleeing with a stolen car, he made them undergo the chase of their lives, driving wildly from Bronx in New York City to Catskills. This act landed him in prison, to which he was sentenced for a period of 4 years.
He was not the type of person to be in prison for that long though. Escaping prison, Kevin underwent some kind of a reincarnation, and came in touch with detective Jim Coherty. Coherty became a foster father to Kevin, and this changed the direction of his life. Kevin now began to work as an informant for the police. He also began working for the FBI and the DEA. This did not last very long however, and Kevin soon succumbed to his addiction to fast cars. He then came in touch with a Colombian drug scion and became addicted to cocaine. This cost him not only his career as an informant, but also wrecked his family life. Both of his marriages failed.
Kevin, however, was finally able to overcome his addiction, and presently he works for a security firm in New Jersey. His is surely one exciting life-story.
