Robert Daley, who lived on Nod Road from 1984 to 1989, is the author many best-selling novels and non-fiction works with police themes. A former deputy commissioner of police in New York City, his books -- such as Prince of the City and Night Falls on Manhattan -- have been made into movies and TV series. Years ago, as a 23-year-old touring France, he met his wife, Peggy, and he has always loved the country and often writes about it. The Innocents Within is based on a true story about a Protestant pastor in World War II France who rescues hundreds of Jews.
