Small Town Police Department Meets Big City Crime. Rocco DeMarco, a young police officer on a suburban “Bedroom Community” police department, north of New York City, is placed in a position of Baptism by Fire. Just days after being assigned as a patrolman to the detective division, DeMarco, along with his lieutenant, are summoned to two bodies, found in trash bags and dumped across the street from the local high school. The subsequent investigation presents many new and sometimes dangerous undertakings. During the course of the investigation, Rocco sometimes lets his enthusiasm cloud his awareness of the dangers he will be facing. DeMarco and the other Investigators have to deal with witnesses, who are of the impression that a small ‘upstate’ police agency can’t handle an investigation of this magnitude. Dogged investigating leads to the identification of three primary suspects. The case takes on a whole new level of risk when DeMarco realizes he would be dealing with a very dangerous, former enforcer from Castro’s Cuba who came to the U.S. on the Muriel Boat Lift in the 1980’s. An undercover arrest of an additional suspect, with the prospect of him facing serious jail time, results in the young man and his father, agreeing to be witnesses against the three key participants, one of whom is the homicidal Cuban. The nature of policing that Rocco DeMarco was looking for came to fruition when his lieutenant turns to him at the site of the two dumped bodies and says, “It’s Your Case Kid.”

Book description…

It is November, 1991. About the time the final nail was being driven in the coffin of the Soviet Union, from the remnants of its former Red Army leadership and defunct KGB came cold-blooded mobsters such as Andrei Guryev, a sadistic crime lord who set about terrorizing New York’s Brighton Beach with his extortion and sex trafficking racket. One man, however, stood in his way…Bruce McGowan. You might know McGowan as America’s quintessential counter-terrorist operative, but find out what he was like twenty plus years before when as an FBI Special Agent he took on the ever-surging Russian Mafiya. Working undercover as a homeless vagrant outside of a Russian restaurant, a known Mafiya operation base, Bruce is not only gathering evidence to bring down the malevolent mob boss and his organization but end the senseless slaying of the homeless on the street who seem to always be getting in Guryev’s way. Bruce, working in tandem with the lovely Russian-bred Misha Orlov, herself a Bureau plant inside Guryev’s operation, in turn becomes the pursued and number one on the crime boss’ target list. Although Bruce can be composed, compassionate and cool-headed, you will not believe he’s the same man when you experience his ruthless side. He plays by the rules…mostly…but don’t make the mistake of going after his family or otherwise pressing his buttons. You may not live to see tomorrow.

Responses to questions and concerns were answered promptly and with information that was very helpful in resolving any concern or question that arose, making this, my first publishing experience, a very easy and rewarding experience for me.
