Shameless Self Promotion

Your Amazon Author Rank:
2778 in Action & Adventure


Today, Amazon.com added an author ranking in addition to individual sales ranking of books. There are those who read this blog who will think that the number above reflects an a anemic showing, but I'll take it.

Of the books I've written, White Powder: A Novel of the CIA and the Secret War in Laos, has done better than the others in terms of consistent sales. 
There is something intoxicating about a secret. There's something terrifying about a shadow war. You may not know much about Laos or the world of WHITE POWDER. You aren't supposed to.

Drugs, sex, and murder combined with personal and national agendas to create the hidden world of heroin where governments and drug empires collide. 
WHITE POWDER is the story of US Army officer, Craig Burton, who became something else. Burton's metamorphosis can't be explained except within the context of others whose roles played a part in the outcome.

It's a story of spies from various nations with both personal and national agendas who congregated in Laos and were willing to do ANYTHING to meet their objectives. The end inevitably justified the means.

Lastly, it's also the story of Charlotte Sabon, who met Craig Burton, fell in love and was willing to commit murder to keep him. In the end she got both what she wanted and what she deserved.

The Cartel Wars Novels began with Bloody Mexico.

In dystopian México, the absence of a just and moral government has led to a vacuum where evil runs virtually unchecked. Society festers where an underground empire rules a land in self-destruct mode. Rampant corruption at all levels thrives in an environment where many compromise their principles and their virtue for narco-money. 

-Retired CIA Case Officer Gary Granger is headed back to Bloody México, where he will find improbable love and will risk everything.

-Santiago Iglesias-Aznar is planning to take the narco war to the United States to suit his own ends and he doesn't care how many people will die in the process.

-Lance Parkyn left the US Marine Corps and now he teaches people to hit the targets they're aiming at. The law of unintended consequences is about to take over his life.


The Cartel Wars continued with The Old Whore.

In the peculiar cultural of the Central Intelligence Agency, "old whores" are people who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, irrespective of the cost.
As a whole, this series comprises a genuine masterpiece of modern, all too real, dramatic fiction, espionage, intrigue, romance and adventure. The story transports us to modern Mexico, where the absence of a just and moral government has led to a vacuum where evil runs virtually unchecked. 

Mexican society festers and an underground empire rules a land in self-destruct mode. The cult of Holy Death threatens to unleash unthinkable horror, through their 'Dead Saint's' thirst for blood. An American intelligence failure requires a cover-up. Argentine and Macedonian hit squads miss the mark. A murder in Paraguay sends a bereaved widow on a quest for justice and retired CIA case officer Gary Granger is called on to manage a deniable solution to the American President's problem.

  2. All three are splendid books. I've read them twice. They have obviously been written by someone "in the know."
