Synopsis: Set in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Second Watch is the story of two young police officers, Katherine Murphy and her new partner, Grace Stevens, who are sent from their quiet footbeat to investigate the death of a girl who has been stuffed into garbage bags and discarded at a nearby garbage dump. The two police officers are drawn into an undercover investigation that reveals the silent cruelty of child abuse, an almost unimaginable but far too common crime.

In Second Watch, Clausen explores the maturing character of the young street cop he first introduced in his acclaimed novel, First Avenue. As one of the first women cops on the Seattle Police Department, Katherine Murphy has a unique perspective to bring to the novel, but Clausen explores the character of the young woman far beyond her job as a police officer. The book also gives voice to a small boy, trapped in his childhood by brutality that he canít control and canít escape. In Second Watch, Clausen shows that the character of a person cannot be discovered until one pushes aside prejudice and preconception and is willing to watch and listen and learn.

About the Author: LOWEN CLAUSEN grew up on the plains of Nebraska, reading books about far-away places. He moved with his young family to one of those places while holding on to the roots of his childhood. He is still holding on and divides his time between Seattle, Washington and his childhood home in St. Paul, Nebraska. Lowen worked as a police officer on the Seattle Police department for thirteen years, and that experience is revealed in much of his writing. While a police officer, he studied literature at the University of Washington and went on to become a business owner in Seattleís Ballard district.
