When Bethany Crutchfield failed to show for Sunday brunch, and her father’s phone calls remained unanswered, it became apparent that concern was warranted regarding her welfare. Police officers from “America’s Safest City,” Irvine, California, discovered a gruesome homicide scene which established Bethany as the first in a series of murders that would ultimately span over a decade. Lincoln 9 takes place in a city whose reputation for safety and affluence overshadows the fact that the relatively few annual homicides are among the most vicious and complex cases of human brutality ever to be solved. This is a story of three such cases, combined into a fictional plot with fictional characters, but based upon real crimes and real police officers who risked their lives to bring justice to the perpetrators of these heinous acts of violence. Lincoln 9 follows the career of Lieutenant Scott Hunter, the consummate cop who rises to the level of responsibility to lead a team of detectives on a mission aimed at connecting the clues and solving these crimes. The story conveys the pressures associated with working within an organization that hires only 4% of its applicants, and whose efforts result in perennial accolades for achieving the lowest numbers of violent crime. In addition, it introduces a look behind the curtain of secrecy shielding the role played by Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Teams in the development of leaders.
