Crime Series Part One: Criminals surface steadily in Cottonwood County

Sun Tzu wrote the famous text, The Art of War, before the time of Christ. He was a Chinese general who lived in sixth century B.C. in the state of Wu, an eastern area of the country that now contains Shanghai and Nanjing.

The text has been used in statecraft, business, war and, yes, self-defense and property management and security. Tzu focused much on trying to put oneself in the shoes of someone who is a possible opponent or force to be reckoned with.
