Book Description
You Win Some . . . You Lose Some is an honest account of the many trials and tribulations associated with being a Newfoundland Federal Fisheries Officer. In this book, you will be exposed to many undercover operations, stakeouts and other exercises as told by someone who has lived these encounters nearly everyday of his life.
