Interview with Michael Tabman, Author of Midnight Sin
Michael Tabman is a former cop and veteran FBI Agent, who has been interviewed and quoted by national and local media on matters ranging from workplace violence to fraud and street crime. He is also the author of Walking the Corporate Beat and Midnight Sin.
Welcome to The Book Connection, Michael. We are honored to have you with us.
Where did you grow up?
New York City
When did you begin writing?
I started writing immediately after retiring from the FBI.
What is this book about?
Midnight Sin is an inside look at the dark and mysterious world behind the cop’s badge. Rookie cop Gary Hollings quickly learns that wrestling street thugs and arresting drug dealers while trying to track down a serial rapist is nowhere near as tough as watching his back from his fellow cops. He must also fight his inner demons – ones that he never knew he had until he put on that police uniform. Becoming a cop changes everything he thought he knew about life. Midnight Sin is a gritty cop novel that explores the complexities of the cop psyche.
I am inspired by the freedom writing gives us to express our thoughts, opinions and creativity. Midnight Sin is a reflection of the interesting people and unusual events I encountered during my 27 years of law enforcement experience.
Who is your biggest supporter?
The most significant supporter of Midnight Sin, on a professional level is Law and Order Producer Peter Giuliano. He has set the bar for cop stories. As for my biggest supporter on a personal level, I think my wife and mother are tied.
