About the Book

After failed attempts to penetrate the veil of one of several oyster wholesale companies operating in Galveston, Texas, suspected of involvement in the production and distribution of the deadly drug, fentanyl, Black Water is called upon to solve the mystery. Using investigative techniques unavailable to the DEA because of restrictions imposed by numerous laws, Black Water discovers the suspect company is involved in a most unique distribution chain, stretching from Mexico across over half of the United States. Beginning with the head of one of the largest drug cartels in Mexico to dozens of wholesale and retail oyster companies across the country and down to the street dealers, they are given approval to eradicate the entire distribution chain by whatever means necessary. Knowing the number of deaths attributed annually to fentanyl, Black Water is only too willing to do what the government cannot do: Remove everyone involved.

About the Author

Raised on a small farm in Muleshoe, Texas, Jim finally earns his bachelor’s degree after a couple of failed attempts and becomes a pilot for the US Air Force just as the war in Vietnam ends. Years later, he joins American Airlines as a pilot, flying domestically and internationally, until forced to retire at the age of sixty. With nothing to keep him busy, except managing his small ranch, he turns to writing to provide the mental stimulation he enjoyed while flying. Intent on creating a story representing the issues of our times, he blends real-world situations with unfettered action to provide solutions impossible by government agencies.
