Whatever It Took

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


Whatever It Took is an account of the author's thirty year career in investigations and law enforcement, covering from l957 to 1987. The first part emphasizes the years LaMascus spent as Chief Deputy Sheriff of Knox County, Texas, where he did just about everything there was to do in the way of law enforcement in a rural North Texas County. The second part covers LaMascus's twenty year career with the US Border Patrol and concludes with his retirement in 1987.

LaMascus's cases range from drunk and disorderly conduct to capital murder and smuggling of aliens and narcotics. The incidents discussed include such diverse subjects as UFOs and little yellow flowers and range from the tragic to the hilarious as readers learn what it took to administer effective law enforcement in the days before the technology for in-depth DNA tests and such niceties as GPS and cell phones.
