I had the distinct privilege of meeting both authors at a Barnes and Noble book signing. Such sweet spirits. We traded books and although I haven't had an opportunity to finish either, I want to draw your attention to their work so you can research for yourself. They are both local to the Ocala area.

The Smuggler's Promise by Rufus Hylton:
"BASED ON A TRUE STORY. Stumbling into the dangerous and lucrative world of drug lords and the smuggling scene of the 1970’s was the last thing Ryan O’Dair pictured for himself when starting a new life in the Florida Keys.
But like the lure of love and adventure in a tropical paradise—it pulls Ryan in—planting him in the crosshairs of Scott Jones, a rogue DEA Agent who will stop at nothing short of sabotage, heists, and murder to take down Ryan and the crime syndicate as it networks across Florida, the Caribbean and South America.
And as the pursuit becomes a high stakes game of survival, Ryan has to decide if the wrong side of the law is the right place to be." 2.99 on Kindle and 9.99 on paperback
