Book 1 in the Reluctant Sniper Series
It was a dream vacation to Mexico to celebrate twenty-five years of marriage for Don and Theresa. Unfortunately, the dream became a nightmare when suddenly the hotel they are staying at is attacked by armed gunmen from a drug cartel and Theresa, as well as nine other women, are kidnapped and taken away. Desperate to save his wife, Don tries every legal and political avenue available to him, but to no avail. With no hope offered by the government, he turns to himself and skills he has not used for decades, skills that he never wanted to use. Is it enough? Is HE good enough? It is a deadly race with time to find his wife before she too becomes a victim.
Set in a fictional world that is all too realistic, Desert Hawk is a gripping story of political failure and a desperate man’s willingness to do whatever it takes to save the love of his life. The border along the southern United States is the new battleground for a campaign of terror, and the U.S. Government is not willing to do anything to fight the growing violence during an election year. Unfortunately, it is the locals that have to pay the price for their incompetence.
