- Western History Writer
Don Bullis retired in 2002 after a career in New Mexico law enforcement
that included stints as county sheriff’s deputy and detective sergeant,
town marshal, state organized crime commissioner, and criminal intelligence
operational supervisor. He was a small-town newspaper editor before
he entered law enforcement. He lives in Rio Rancho, NM with his wife,
Gloria.Don is a Sergeant with the NM Dept of Public Safety and is also
a Western History Writer.
He writes a weekly column for the Rio Rancho Observer. Don is
the author of the Old West Trivia Book and NM's Finest:
Police Officers Killed In The Line of Duty. His latest book
What Don Bullis has done with this novel is intertwine a very accurate
weave of murder, police and politics in New Mexico. Don is the single
most knowledgeable writer on New Mexico law enforcement history, practices
and personalities. He should be – he’s worked for many years in New
Mexico state and local policing. Bloodville has the steel on steel
ring of unflinching truth told in a style and setting which makes this
book difficult to lay aside for silliness such as meals or work.
Outstandingly entertaining, thoroughly accurate and sobering as well –
I recommend Bloodville to folks both inside and outside policing.
William Kuehl is a former New Mexico State Police captain,
a retired municipal police administrator and has directed local, state
and international law enforcement academies.
