"There are writers who aspire to be cops and there are cops who would like to become writers. Rarely is either successful at both. If he was as good at law enforcement as he is at writing, Bergsgaard would appear to be the exception." Bill Henry, Author. L. D. Bergsgaard was indeed a good investigator, a hard nosed cop's cop who spent nearly 30 years putting bad men behind bars. His career spanned nearly every aspect of law enforcement from protection details to undercover operations, from sophisticated international crimes to SWAT commander. Few agents are so fortunate to participate in crime fighting at this level. Since retiring, Bergsgaard has written seven novels and each reflects the gritty experiences and gut retching action others only read about . When asked how he learned to write, Bergsgaard recalls that as an agent he has been writing hundreds of reports documenting crimes of passion and greed for three decades. "It's a pleasure to write the same storyline only now I determine the outcome and can polish off those who get in the way!" Bergsgaard's crime/action novels have received high acclaim from readers and critics. "This novel elevates Bergsgaard to the level of the great espionage writers, the likes of John LeCarre and Fredrick Forsyth." Ned Lord concerning "Next Year in Jerusalem." "Renaissance Man . . . undercover operative, SWAT team commander, horseman, author. Add'em up and you get Larry Bergsgaard. His unique writing style has a hint of Jack Kerouac melded with Stephen King, but it's all Larry." Scott Dyke, Reporter. Bergsgaard is most proud of his collection of short stories, "Where the Best Began," of which Kirkus Reviews said, "Bergsgaard's writing is suggestive of an oral storyteller with impeccable timing and taste; his language reflects the great American vernacular at its most lean and direct."
