Book synopsis for REPEAT OFFENDER: Sin City’s Most Notorious Criminal and the Cop Who Caught Him:
Millions in stolen property, revolting sex crimes and murder-for-hire were all in the mix for a Las Vegas police detective as he toiled to take Sin City’s most prolific criminal off the streets for good.
In REPEAT OFFENDER Las Vegas Police Detective Bradley Nickell brings you the inside scoop on the investigation of the most prolific repeat offender Las Vegas has ever known.
Daimon Monroe looked like an average guy raising a family with his diffident schoolteacher girlfriend. But just below the surface, you’ll learn he was an accomplished thief with an uncontrollable lust for excess. His criminal mind had no bounds—he was capable of anything given the proper circumstances.
You will be revolted by Monroe’s amassed wealth through thievery, his plot to kill Detective Nickell, a judge and a prosecutor, and the physical and sexual abuse to which Monroe subjected his daughters.
From the book: “On a more personal level, Daimon introduced fear into my family, a new kind of uncertainty born from the plot to kill me. It changed how my kids think about the world; it changed how my wife thinks about our safety. It challenged me in ways I had never been before and haven’t been since. Even now, the first thought with any unexpected knock at our door is expectance of danger. I’ve considered leaving Las Vegas when I retire and taking further steps to become anonymous, but that’s a rabbit hole with no end. Security won’t come from those things. It will only come from knowing who lays out my path. Daimon Monroe came home with me in September of 2006 and hasn’t left my house yet. But that doesn’t make him the architect of my future.”
