Introducing Chris Mosquera, author of Damian Garcia: PhD Drug Smuggler

“I have used Outskirts Press for both books I have published: “Is Organized Labor A Decaying Business Model” in 2009 and “Damian Garcia: PhD Drug Smuggler” in 2013. I plan to use Outskirts Press for the sequel to “Damian Garcia: PhD Drug Smuggler” when it is ready. I will use them for all subsequent books I will publish. For both books, I have found their services to be excellent and very professional. They deliver what they promise, are easy to work with, and their publishing prices are very reasonable. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the best, I would rate Outskirts Press as ONE HUNDRED. They are that good! They are the best in the business and getting better each year.”

Chris Mosquera is also the author of “Is Organized Labor A Decaying Business Model?” published by Outskirts Press. Chris Mosquera may be contacted: damiangarciathebook@gmail.com

Book description…

This is the story of Damian Garcia, and the international drug trade in opium and hashish, by PhD graduate students in New York City, circa 1972. It is about love, friendship, family, loyalty, and an extremely discreet and very lucrative international drug smuggling business plan, with the financial returns totaling in the many millions of dollars. The business plan was a new combination of opium and hashish product, the family branded as O/H. The targeted demographics were graduate students, nurses, doctors, accountants and attorneys. O/H became the professionals’ drug of choice worldwide. O/H grew to become the largest and most profitable international drug smuggling enterprise unknown to all but a few. Those that knew would never tell; that was the family code. The book is through the eyes of Damian Garcia, looking back in another day, when life was more trusting, the social and political climates were more interconnected, and personal relationships truly mattered.
