Here is a collection of true crime short stories from the memoirs of veteran homicide investigator, Detective Lt. Robert (Robbo) Davidson. Six accounts are woven together with his memories, case files, witness statements, and trial transcripts.
The Evil I Have Seen is available locally at Mansfield Drug in Mansfield and 4-C Coffee in Grand Cane. It is also available from Amazon. The book comes in both hardback and softcover copies as well as Kindle.
About his book, Robbo said, “Now I ruminate on those old investigations, realizing some things seen stain the brain as surely as the iron-laden soil of western Louisiana forever changes the color of whatever it touches. You cannot wash red dirt out of clothing, and you cannot unsee what you have seen.
“You cannot look into the empty eyes of death staring back at you as many times as I did and say you were not changed by what you saw. I stopped trying to count homicides cases a long time ago. There are ghosts waiting for me in every corner of DeSoto Parish.”
Detective Lt. Robert “Robbo” Davidson retired in 2014 after working forty years in Louisiana law enforcement, beginning as an undercover narcotics agent during the 1970’s. He later worked as an investigator for the 11th Judicial District of Louisiana before joining the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Department, where he worked drug and homicide investigations for thirty-three years.
