TCP Ep. 19 Retired Police Chief Paula May Author of First Degree Rage


As a way of saying thank you for helping me get the TCP off the ground, anyone who likes subscribes, and rates the TCP gets a free e-book. Hit me up by   DM on IG @thatscriminalpodcast or email,, and I’ll send you one of my titles either Brother’s Keeper, Shattered Circle, or Wraith of Sheltermount.

Tonight I get to talk to retired Chief of Police and author of First Degree Rage : The True Story of ‘The Assassin,’An Obsession, and Murder, and Raging On of The “Rage” True Crime Series.

Paula May has been a sworn law enforcement officer in the state of North Carolina since 1989, the last ten as a Chief of Police. Years prior to that she was a detective investigating major violent crimes. Her books First Degree Rage: The True Crime Story of ‘The Assassin,’ An Obsession, and Murder, and Raging On cover the case of LC Underwood. A police officer convicted of murdering his estranged girlfriend’s new lover in 1993.

This was a great interview. We discussed everything from a frozen crime scene in the middle of winter, to going head to head with a murderer in the interrogation room. You’re going to enjoy this one.

As always thank you for your continued support for Blood Red Ivory, available in e-book, paperback, and audiobook everywhere.

Thank you to Crush Limbo for the music.

Like I mentioned I’ll be at Books at the Beach September, 8th to the 10th. Tickets still available.
