Retired NYPD Cop Delivers a Thrilling, Moving Police Drama in New Book The Daddy Rock

New York, NY, November 5, 2012 – Decent Hill is proud to present retired NYPD cop Michael J. Kannengieser, New York native and author of the new police thriller The Daddy Rock ($19.95 Paperback 978-1-936085-63-7; $9.95 eBook 978-1-936085-64-4). The Daddy Rock is a fast-paced tale of adventure, crime, rage, family drama, and the human capacity to cope and forgive. Told in a vivid, descriptive, and readable style, Michael takes the reader on an exhilarating ride in this human police story with sympathetic, well-developed characters that will keep the reader turning the pages well into the night.

In the exciting novel, retired NYPD cops Roger and Danny are caught in the crossfire by previously incarcerated gang members who are now out for revenge. Roger must also deal with ghosts of his past as a previously unknown daughter of his, Bonnie, the product of a teenage love affair, surfaces seeking help. Roger must help Danny apprehend the men out to kill them, and he must come to Bonnie’s aid so she may live.


“What excites me the most about The Daddy Rock is the idea of confronting enormous challenges and conquering them,” states the author in a recent interview with Decent Hill. “What each character must do is take action in the face of danger, sacrifice for others, and make choices for a better life for themselves, their friends, and their families.”
