Choking in Fear

Book cover design for memoir written by Mike McCarty.

Small-town Indiana seems the perfect place for a boy to grow up, and Mike McCarty loved his life in Waveland as a police officer’s son. At the tender age of nine, however, his quiet community was shocked by a horrific crime—a family’s murder in their own home. For the first time, Mike knew real fear.

Years later, long after the killers were jailed, Mike remains haunted by the evil deed. 

Although a police officer like his father, Mike feels impotent in the face of the murder and knows he must confront the memory head-on. Take part in Mike’s journey as he uncovers links between abusive relationships and crime and finds a way to make his own life a tool for change.
