With the arrival of June, we expect the hot long summer to begin soon. For those of you who are not familiar with Central Texas, we experienced a drought for a couple of years. Now we’ve done an one-eighty with torrential rains. All lakes, ponds and rivers are filled to overflowing. The folks downstream are getting flooded out. Where we live we have to beware of high water crossings on the roadways, particularly during hours of darkness.
Our historical narrative Before the Belle continues to receive highly acclaimed reviews; a number are posted on Amazon. We’re extremely gratified by most of the reviewers commenting on how they enjoyed the conversations among Hot Stuff’s crew members. In addition, they mentioned how much they felt they were flying along with the crew during each mission. Some readers became personally attached to one or more of the crew members. They felt they knew them intimately.
Great news! Our new suspense mystery title Living For This Moment has been released. The book’s back matter follows:
A New York gangster is convicted of murder and racketeering and sent to federal prison for life. Shortly after the trial the prosecuting attorney’s automobile explodes in front of his residence in Brooklyn. His wife is killed and he is presumed dead. The authorities suspect the gangster’s crime family is responsible for the murder but are unable to prove it. The injured attorney is covertly entered into a special federal protection program where he is given a new face and identity – Derreck Drummond. His new career is that of an investigator for the Department of Justice. Over the ensuing months Drummond and his able assistant operating out of Chicago conduct investigations into various crimes around the country and report their findings to DOJ. While doing so Drummond never forgets the death of his wife as he relentlessly pursues a course of revenge. During one of his investigations a twist of fate provides the vehicle by which he is able to extract the justice he so perniciously craved; he was living for this moment.
Those of you who are seeking a good summer read will find Derreck Drummond a most fascinating hero. Living For This Moment introduces him as character who steps over the line of legality to seize his own version of justice.
We hope you all have a most enjoyable summer.
