At seven years of age, Karl Lewkowski was placed into an orphanage in Cleveland, Ohio. He entered foster care at age 11 and married his sweetheart, Toni, at just 16 with a child on the way.
What happens to a man and his family after a bleak start like that?
Cool Man Lewk: My Journey from Orphan to Crime Fighter is the powerful story of Karl Lewkowskis incredible journey from unwanted orphan kid to successful private investigator and self-described "crime fighter." Barely out of adolescence, he supports his young family as an apprentice in the local grocerys meat department. His restless ambition leads him steadily upward to careers as a flight Instructor, a charter pilot, a law enforcement officer and finally the owner of his own private investigation agency, Argus Investigations.
The book is bursting with stories of Karls most interesting cases and hair-raising adventures as a cop, undercover operative, and private eye, all told with wry humor and unblinking honesty by a guy who served his clients with grit and integrity.
Cool Man Lewk is a testament to the power of hard work, faith in oneself, and the love of God and family. The book is dedicated to Karls late wife Toni, who was by his side for sixty years, through thick and thin, until her death in 2016.
