Product Description

REPEAT OFFENDER Was Selected Best True Crime book of 2015 by Suspense Magazine!


"If you like mayhem, madness, and suspense, Repeat Offender is the book to read. It’s a provocative journey into a world one rarely uncovers, with shocking twists and turns that will keep you riveted!”Aphrodite Jones, New York Times bestselling author of Cruel Sacrifice and host of True Crime with Aphrodite Jones on the Investigation Discovery Network

"A gripping, true story of a prolific recidivist serial criminal, and the relentless police detective who took him down, despite threats against himself and his family. Heart-pounding at times. An absolute must have book for all crime readers."-- RJ Parker, bestselling true crime author of Back Seat Tragedies.

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.

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.

"An action-packed, fast-paced true crime thriller from a real-life ‘Sin City’ cop depicting his battle with a notorious, and dangerous, Las Vegas criminal.”Steve Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of BOGEYMAN and MONSTER.

"This will be the ride-along of your life. Repeat Offender takes you here, there and everywhere into the world of repeat offenders, cops, justice and injustice. The ultimate detective, Bradley Nickell, expertly takes you through it all with brilliance and dedication. The shocking conclusion helps the reader understand everything about the system all at once. Fasten your seat belts!”Anne Bremner, high-profile attorney and internationally recognized television legal analyst

"Career criminals are hard to catch and even more difficult to send to prison. Daimon Monroe met his match when he decided to prey upon the citizens of Las Vegas. Repeat Offender is a fascinating, behind the scenes look at an investigation and prosecution of a notorious criminal. You won’t want to put it down"David Roger, District Attorney of Clark County, NV (retired)

"Repeat Offender takes you deep into the “belly of the beast” of our legal system for an insight filled look at the dedication and perseverance required by police officers and prosecutors engrossed in the thankless tasks of keeping our cities, streets, and homes a safer place"Matthew J. Pallamary, author of Land Without Evil and Spirit Matters

The author is donating 10 percent of the proceeds for the sale of the book to the Rape Crisis Center of Las Vegas

Repeat Offender is a novel based on a true story, highlighting the bureaucracy in the legal system, in trying to get cases won in court, people trying to get a new start, despite the sadness, or struggles they have experienced, and other types of injustice, including people not being held accountable for their actions. These themes are delineated in a book about a detective trying to bring an elusive criminal to justice. An unforgettable read about how the road to justice is a difficult one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime, Punishment, and Redemption Aug. 21 2016
By S. Watkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nickell somehow managed to create an entirely unique tome in the True Crime genre here with Repeat Offender. Completely off script, Nickell takes us into the world of cops, criminals, the criminal justice system, and victims in refreshingly vibrant and compelling ways. Here, you get it all: Victims, criminals, heroes and heroines, and tragedy and redemption. It is a true story and reads like one, and yet, Nickell takes you so deep that you'll not be able to put it down. I read it in one rainy day.
The decision to do the right thing comes from surprising people with nothing to gain, and you'll find yourself rooting hard for one of the criminals as the story progresses - I thought this was the most heart warming part of the book, the story of Tammy - and Nickell doesn't disappoint you with her journey.
That Nickell himself is the chief protagonist is not at all distracting, nor self serving. He spends no time dwelling on himself or his family, but rather keeps you moving through the biggest case of his career, with a supporting cast of prosecutors, judges, jailers, cops, and others that make you feel as if you got to shadow all of them through this stunning - and disturbing - case.
You can read the book description for the story line - you don't need me to repeat it here. That said, you are in for quite a ride as Nickell takes you not only on a fascinating trip through the criminal justice system, but lets you take a long, slow look at the mind of a committed criminal, one that stood Las Vegas on its head with the audacity of his crimes. Indeed, Daimon Monroe is the kind of person society can't wait to slam a cell door on, yet Nickell, for all he endured, still offers a compassionate look at what prisons really are, which is atypical for a cop dedicated to putting people there.
The story, the characters, the crime and punishment, all of it is there for the crime story lover. Also making a prominent appearance throughout the book is humanity, in all its flawed and hope filled essence. It is the kind of book that will make you think. It challenges the "throwaway" mentality while simultaneously making the case for long sentences. Some people warrant prison with no chance to see the light of day again, whether we like it or not, and Nickell seems to struggle with that a little while still hoping that Monroe gets the proverbial book thrown at him for each and every crime. He also shows you a better side of even bad people than you imagine they have. No easy feat.
This is a story about people as much as it is about crime. This is not the sensationalist, tabloid kind of crime story that is all too prevalent these days. Rather, it is the story of human beings. For as much as I hoped for Monroe to be held accountable, I more rooted for Tammy and her children to find their way.
I won't spoil it for you. Buy this, and read it for yourself.
You won't be disappointed, I promise.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fascinating story Jan. 8 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a riveting story. I listened to the audio version of Repeat offender and was impressed with the narrator’s ability to bring alive the words of author Bradley Nickell as he tells the story of the dedicated team of law enforcement persons in their relentless pursuit of Damon Monroe. Villains like Monroe are dangerous, and I tip my hat (If I wore one that is) to the team that brought him down. My heart went out to his children, who will forever have to bear the scars of his abuse and lifestyle to which he subjected them. The story especially fascinated me as I used to live in Las Vegas. Listening as the narrator describes the author’s words, put me right back in the city. The author tells of the ordeal in the form of a story that is interwoven with facts of the case—which, in my opinion, makes the book interesting to both fiction and non-fiction readers. In this book, the author shares both his trials and triumphs of bringing this man and his accomplices to justice, at the same time showing great empathy for their victims. He ends the story with some thought provoking views and opinions that really get the readers thinking about our society—all of which I heartily agree. I highly recommend this story to both true-life crime enthusiasts and mystery readers. I felt a connection with this author, whether it came from having lived in the same city, our connection on Twitter (which is where I first learned of this novel), our shared faith in God, or the tenderness he showed toward the people he swore to protect-I’m not sure. I only know I hope to see more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction Jan. 26 2016
By I♥2Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This review is for REPEAT OFFENDER Audible Edition

As an early fan of LAPD Detective Joseph Wambaugh (The New Centurions, 1971), I had yet to come across another author of true crime who could keep me riveted with a captivating story...until now.

Las Vegas Police Detective Bradley Nickell, with co-author Warren Jamison, recounts the tenacious investigation and arrest of career criminal, Daimon Monroe, following with the court trials and multiple life sentences. I was fascinated by all the details from transcripts, frustrated by the audacity of the defendant (and the defense attorney) and relieved by the final outcome. I don't know which shocked me more-- the revelation of torture and sexual abuse of his own daughters or the conspiracy to kill Nickell, the judge and prosecuting attorney.

Narrator Kevin Pierce gave an exemplary performance, capturing the nuance of each character. (I'll definitely be looking for more of his narrations!)

5.0 out of 5 stars We Have A Shield Oct. 15 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not being the prolific writer that Officer Nickell is, this comes hard for me, but out of gratitude and respect for the service that he and all law enforcement personnel put in on our behalf it is a small support that I feel I can contribute. Repeat Offender is spell binding but more than that it is a detailed, blow by blow story of the pain and misery that these habitual criminals put on so many innocent people over periods of years. Though at time, it seems to get bogged down in the daily trials that go on for years to get just on criminal off the streets I am reminded that the people in this story have to live this in order to protect us, and keep animals like Damain off the streets. It is not a thriller (ie; "In Cold Blood") but a realistic accounting of ROP animals and the pain staking efforts of the prosecutors to keep them off the streets. This should be a "Must Read" for all law abiding citizens.
