A detective at the Meridian Police Department has written a book.
The book is entitled "Inherited Courage" and is based on events from the life of author and Meridian Police Officer Shane Massie.
Massie says it's the story of a young boy's search to discover if he's worthy of the family name.
"My inspiration came from my family. I really wanted to tell a story about my grandfather and father, with a little bit of fiction to go along with it," said Massie.
The book is available in Meridian at Super Wal-Mart.
