Overview

"Overall, a fine, action packed and thrilling read."(C.R.)

"An intelligently written thriller."(L.S.)

On the Pacific Northwest border, large scale smuggling is controlled by a motorcycle gang led by Joseph Branson,  an ex-Navy SEAL and Chief of an Indian band. Their successful operation draws the attention of the FBI when Joseph ambushes and kills two Border Patrol agents using a highly classified weapon.

When the same type of weapon turns up in the hands of the Taliban and Al Qaida, the FBI and the CIA are tasked to identify the source - which turns out to be a factory the Chief has set up in partnership with the inventor and a Russian arms dealer.

Follow the action as the gang battles the FBI and distributes their arms to the jihadists.

Description

Rated 4 out of 5 by three professional readers, The story centers on people, drugs and weapons smuggling and the ruthlessness of a well-entrenched criminal organization. The smugglers are mainly Native American Indians and motorcycle gang members led by a chieftain with a Navy SEAL background. Although the smuggling is within the aegis of the Border Patrol and various ICE sub-agencies, the FBI steps in when two Border Patrol agents are killed by smugglers. The pursuit of the killers not only uncovers drug and gun distribution rigs in America but also unveils a major plot to supply a secret weapon to the Taliban and Al Qaida and sub plots of the State Department, Canadian spy agencies, NATO and the CIA. The story transports the reader from the Okanagan Canada-U.S.A. border region to England, Kyrgyzstan and the Maldives. Action scenes include: murder of two Border Patrol Special Agents; ambush and murder of Korean human trafficking gang members; a winter ambush and destruction of two FBI helicopters while attempting to intercept a smuggling operation; a gun battle between smuggler and FBI helicopters; and a Navy SEAL underwater approach assault on an armory and meth lab on a remote island in the Maldives. The story and the persona are complete fiction but ideas have been gleaned and exaggerated from some “life experiences and characterizations” and events. For example, trans border drug smuggling by helicopter in the Okanagan is well known and some aircraft have been confiscated. In another example, the Taliban and Al Qaida used a resort in the Maldives for conferences when your author was working in the Maldives. Some towns have been fictionalized but other well-known landmarks are retained. The Chieftain is portrayed as a sociopathic “anti-hero” – well respected in his environmental activities and leadership roles with no remorse for killing adversaries. He is not “killed off” in the story - although much of his well-ordered world is lost – as your author has at least three more episodes in mind.

About the author
