Tuebor – I Will Defend. An anatomy of a Michigan State Police Trooper. Principia Media, 2016

Tuebor is the story of an honest, hard-working yet naïve young man who chose to leave the safety of civilian life for a career of a dedicated police officer. Whether an aspiring police officer, a current police officer or someone interested in understanding what serving the public is about, these true stories capture the human side of police. Readers will learn about the daily lives of officer travel as they encounter humanity in its various forms. With recent deadly race-related encounters in the news, the public’ perception of the police officers who safeguard them have changed. Hopefully Tuebor will provide a background of understanding to assist in improving the relationship between the public and police.

The book is dedicated to the Michigan State Police and its’ employees on the agencies’ 100th Anniversary (April 19, 1917 – April 19, 2017).

The author is working on a second book about his experiences as a sole practitioner working in many areas of civil law, including: divorces, evictions, plaintiff-products liability, plaintiff-premises liability, plaintiff-automobile negligence, and a few other areas involving many large corporations as well as individual defendants.

Tuebor-I Will Defend, by Robert Muladore is an amazing look into the life of a Michigan State Trooper.  I am not a police officer, but found the book to be a compelling read.  Robert Muladore writes from the heart and you cannot help but to have a visceral reaction to the stories he tells. He has a way of writing about very serious situations while giving an analysis of the dynamic forces of the law and human nature.   I am sure that every reader, like myself, will feel intense gratitude for all the State Troopers and other first responders.  The sacrifices that they make, along with their families, is truly amazing.  I look forward to the next book written by Robert Muladore because I am sure that he has many, many more stories to tell.

I just finished your novel which I purchased from you at blueberry festival. I loved it! I am a nurse and worked ER for 10 years so your stories brought back memories. I am passing it on to my fellow ER nurse pal.
The book was an easy and fast read. One suggestion only, a list of abbreviations would be helpful! Let me know if you publish another!
