The following is an excerpt from Alex Slozzo’s blog site: Be aware that the world described within these pages is dark, violent and desolate, and there are scenes with tough language, whether it comes from vile human beings or Satan himself. Quite an act of courage on the part of the author, whose background as a law enforcer familiarized him with coarseness on different levels. Also, there is a fair share of graphic scenes, racial slurs(it’s the South, after all, and sadly, racism is still alive and well), sexuality, so for those of you looking for a Sunday-school read, you won’t find it here. For those who like their Christian fiction way on the gritty side, this is a 10-star read! Thank you, Mr. Davis! Killer of a job!

Paul’s first magazine article is in the May 2015 issue of SOLDIER OF FORTUNE magazine. It is titled: DETER, DETECT, REACT – The Essence of Dignitary Protection. Paul’s photography work is also in the article.



Tactical photography is a fairly new art form. It contains action photo shots of police and military training events. Paul was asked to be the official photographer for the 2015 International Breacher’s Symposium and spent a week in November 2015 covering this exciting event. For those that don’t know what a breacher is, it is a soldier or police officer trained in breaching walls and doorways and any other part of a building where terrorists or hostage takers might be hiding. This can be mechanical breaching or explosive breaching.
