Beyond having a direct lineage to one of the founding families of Kansas, Ronald Nye’s name is forever linked to history through his father, Harold Nye, the lead field investigator for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation during one of America’s most iconic criminal cases.
Much like his father, Ron Nye has lived a life in service to others. While Harold Nye chose law enforcement as his path, Ron's journey led him to the more compassionate field of rehabilitative counseling. As the book describes, he was on the scene in Oklahoma City when domestic terrorists bombed the Murrah Federal Building in 1995, helping hundreds of survivors deal with the trauma of that day for years afterward, for which he was nominated Humanitarian of the Year and later named Counselor of the Year by HealthSouth Oklahoma City.
Now retired, Ron spends time with his lifelong passion of fixing up hot rods—one of which is featured in a dramatic chase scene in the book.
