In the 30 years that Herman L. Hinton worked in law enforcement, he saw teenagers and adults suffer or even get killed because of bad choices that they made. His first novel, “Hidden Relationships of the Homicide Detective,” (published by Xlibris) was written with an underlying message describing the importance of having strong family values and meaningful relationships.

Hidden Relationships of the Homicide Detective” introduces Trey Wilcox, a young man who attempts to restore his parents’ failing marriage. Through Trey’s experiences, readers will examine notions of family, relationships and belongingness. While in pursuit of what he believes is the key to restoring happiness in his family, Trey meets some interesting people who at one time or another crossed paths with his dad, along with other startling discoveries that could change his life and the foundations of his family. More than anything else, this long and winding voyage reinforces his belief that family and lifelong relationships are vitally important for survival.

Peopled by richly drawn characters, “Hidden Relationships of the Homicide Detective” is a multilayered story that elucidates truths about family, self-discovery and the complexities of human relationships.
