2022-2023 Gold Medal Winner in the Literary Awards Competition

Congratulations to our dear friend Eliot Sefrin! 🏅

Brunswick Forest author Eliot Sefrin’s latest novel, Officers Down, has been named a Gold Medal Winner in the Reader Views 2022-2023 Literary Awards Competition, a prestigious annual contest sponsored by a leading book review website.

Cited among hundreds of novels judged, Officers Down revolves around a pair of New York City police officers – one male, one female, both white – who accidentally kill an innocent black teen in a poverty-stricken neighborhood and face the backlash from an enraged community, a politically driven police department, and their own emotional unraveling.

Based on the experiences of Eliot’s wife, Rosalyn, a pioneering female officer, this illuminating and powerful novel shines a light on many of the challenges faced by law enforcement professionals and minority communities in today’s racially charged climate.

Officers Down is available as both an epub and in print through Amazon and other online book retailers. Eliot can be reached at esefrin@yahoo.com regarding presentations to book clubs and civic groups.
