A growing crisis in the United States has reached all the way to the Oval Office where a personal tragedy has left both the President and the First Lady grieving. Desperate times call for desperate measures with President Buchannan asking the Dogs of Warr for a response even more covert than usual. Colonel Warr leads the team south of the border on their first ever all volunteer basis mission. Their clandestine trip below the equator divulges a devilish surprise but an unfortunate event shortens the excursion, leaving the team one Dog down. New faces arrive at the Kennel giving the second mission attempt a greater chance for the desired outcome. This time, if the stars align, mission success could result in a twofold victory!
The President's son has died from an overdose of Rockettrip, a new designer drug consisting of a combination of cocaine, heroin and LSD. It's called Rockettrip because it gets the user so high, so fast, it's said to be like taking off on a rocket. The First Lady is naturally, terribly upset, wanting the President to do something about the death of their son. An evening walk in the South Lawn by the President and his personal Secret Service agent bears fruit as the agent plants the seed for a non-sanctioned operation against the cartel. This drug not only killed the President's son but the Secret Service Agent's nephew as well. We meet Javier Escobar, the nephew of Pablo Escobar, cartel leader in his own right and drug czar in Central America. He was educated in the United States earning a master's degrees in chemical engineering and a minor in Psychology. Javier used these degrees to create the potent new narcotic, Rockettrip. The drug lord also learns through some of his back channels that the President of the United States is after him. While confident in the security of his drug factory because of his people and its remote location, he decides he needs to get himself a premier security consultant, just to be sure. The Dogs of Warr have embarked upon their mission to destroy a drug factory in Central America. During this operation new team member Mushy sees former Spetsnaz Colonel Gregor Nikolanovic, the infamous Devil's Ghost, who is being courted as a security consultant for the Escobar cartel. She makes a move to eliminate the Ghost, but this exposes Sandman, resulting in him being injured badly. The mission is unsuccessful with a great personal cost to the team. While Sandman is recuperating another new face, Wild Card, arrives at the Kennel. He knows he must prove himself to the team because he is the unknown commodity. With Mushy and Wild Card now amongst their ranks the team makes its way back down to the drug factory to mount an assault once again on the facility. Will the second mission be successful? Will the covert status be uncovered, and if so, at what cost to the President? Will Rockettrip continue to poison the streets of America?
About the author

TR Gabriel grew up in rural, small town, west central Wisconsin. Watching aircraft from nearby Ft. McCoy fly overhead got him interested in both the military and aviation. During twenty years active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps, he served as an aircraft ground support equipment technician, a Communications Officer, and a CH-53E Helicopter Pilot, primarily served on the west coast with numerous overseas deployments. He is currently with the Flight Program Training Division for a major logistics company in Louisville.

TR's start in writing began when he was prompted by his wife to accomplish one of his 'bucket list' items, writing a book. The subsequent journey has been one of hard work, a steep learning curve, and the realization of a passion for writing.

The Dogs of Warr were initially created in 1986 as comic book characters drawn in a sketchbook. The first novel, Dogs of Warr, brought those characters to life, giving them depth and dimension. Three books in now and working on the fourth. Skull & Crossbownes are two of his other sketched characters debuting in the novella Chronicles of Skull & Crossbownes: The Atlantis File.

A 'part time' author, it's a 'full-time' passion for TR with the ideas continually flowing, eventually winding up on ‘paper’. He sincerely hopes others will hop on to enjoy the ride he's taking his characters on!
