I'm near the end of A Cold Copper Moon. A foreign corporation is drilling in Cuban waters between Havana and Key West, and threatening the eco system of the Florida Straits and the Everglades themselves. Cooper is trying to solve a murder that is somehow connected to the big rig and at the same time tackle new developments in his son's kidnapping.
And so he is caught in an explosion of action in the Caribbean and an eruption of a volcano that has simmered within him for seven years as he hears about what is happening in Muskingum, Ohio, the site of his son's kidnapping.

Blood Moon Rising, Cooper's second in his trilogy, is now out andready for purchase on Amazon or B&N and other bookstores. Says one critic, Tris Coburn, "Coop's a cross between DeMille's Mac McCormack and Connelly's Bosch.
It's even better than the first ~ Cooper gets closer and closer to solving the mystery of his son's disappearance.
One review from Jack Driscoll, award winning author of Lucky Man, Lucky Woman says:
"The novel is so richly cinematic that I read it while simultaneously imagining each of the chapters and scenes playing out on the silver screen... the suspense high-tension from beginning to end."
"Lovers of the genre will find much to keep them engrossed. The author successfully raises tension with gripping descriptions and emotional dialogue,"
