I talked with Mark Armstrong from knot10.com about the Meridian 541 Sedan. What a boat. He was good enough to spend some time with me discussing the specifications and capabilities of this beautiful yacht. Thanks, Mark!
In Blood Moon Rising, Cooper and his posse hijack this boat from the Russians to chase down their super yacht, a reconditioned trawler that they are using as a floating hospital for removing organs from their kidnapped victims to sell to an international clientele. More real than you would dare to believe.
It's a lucrative business--the selling of body parts--grossing billions of dollars a year. And why not. An arm could bring in as much as $100,000.
I don't mean to add to your nightmares. But that's the reality of life today--a world awash in the international trade of people, mostly women and children.
More about Blood Moon Rising and Cooper's latest adventures. Stay tuned.
And thanks again, Mark!

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,"
I'M THRILLED THAT I JUST RECEIVED THE FINALIST AWARD FOR MY SECOND BOOK, BLOOD MOON RISING.
