Lieutenant Joe Hefferon of the Essex County Sheriff’s Office is a 22 year
veteran of law enforcement who is currently assigned to the office of the chief. He “has been a police
officer for more than twenty-two years. His experiences have given him access to the scarier hallways of the human psyche,
helping to layer his narrative with poignancy, grit, and dark humor. Joe Hefferon is the proud parent of two beautiful children,
Jack and Kaitlin.” Lieutenant Joe Hefferon is the author of The Sixth Session.
According to the book description of
The Sixth Session, “Newspaper man Carter Jackson forms an unlikely alliance with Detective
Brooke Enright to stop the awful killing of children while reconciling their own inner torment. Carter is reeling over the
death of his beloved wife and immerses himself in the brutal investigation, set against one bitter cold December.
The Sixth Session will make you think about the best and worst of human capacities. It will make you want to fall in
love again, even with all its tragic consequences.”
