August 24, 2007 (FPRC) -- Kevin Hughes has over 27 years of law enforcement experience. Kevin Hughes joined the Shorewood Hills Police Department in 1974. In 1978, he joined the Dane County Sheriff’s Office (Wisconsin). In 1984, he was promoted to detective and is considered a senior detective for the Dane County Sheriff’s Office. Writing under the pen name of “Charles Porter,” he is the author of Just Another Shade of Blue. According to the book description, “When Detective Conrad Garrity is called to the scene of a body discovered in a remote park, he knows it will be a tough case: the victim is a 13 year old girl who has been missing for several weeks. Internal conflict within his own agency creates instant heartburn and fueling the frenzy is a prolific small market television reporter.”

According to one reader of Just Another Shade of Blue, “I found this book to have all the elements needed to make reading a pleasant experience. The characters take on a life all their own. It is very apparent that Charles Porter has worked in the detective field for many years, as the plot is believable and is interesting until the very end. This is a book that rates right up there with some of the best I've ever read and I recommend it to anyone that takes pleasure in reading. One word of caution, make sure you don't have any up and coming plans, the book is difficult to put down”

Douglas J. Vaughn graduated with honors from the New York Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Criminal Justice.

This second highest Department award is given for “exemplification of extraordinary bravery in armed combat.”

Douglas Vaughn is the author of From the Heights. According to the book description of From the Heights, it “begins in the New York City of the 1930’s and takes the reader to the war in the Pacific and the secret workings of the OSS in Italy and Switzerland during World War II. It is a story of the privileged that summer in South Hampton and the poor who swim in the Harlem River. It is a story of social climbing and empire building. It follows the lives and loves of two generations and delves into the inner workings of the New York Police Department and battles fought by United States Marines in Vietnam.”
