Snippet From Tale

When Scott Macklen discovers a raft abandoned in the Pacific, he sees it for what it really is: trouble.

I grabbed Denty’s arm and turned him toward Tony. By the look on his face, I must have grabbed harder than I’d intended. "It’s coke. A ton at least. And there’s a boat headed this way."

Denty scooped up the glasses and turned toward the oncoming boat.

"Cut it loose," I said. "Then get clear. Fast."

"Christ. What’s with you?" he demanded, lowering the glasses. "We’re taking this in. We’ll be heroes."

"Pass, Denty," Tony said grimly. "Some lowlife paid ten mil for this. He’ll be pissed at losing it."

"Have you guys lost it? What the hell can go wrong? This is Marina Del Rey, not some hot LZ."

But things do go wrong, beginning with the brutal murder of Denty and his family. To save himself, Scott must beat a major coke dealer and his 200 million bucks. While seemingly impossible, Scott must get it done. Or die.

About This Great Book

When Scott Macklen learns he is marked for death by Harry Boggs, the man in cocaine in the San Fernando Valley, his first thought is to slip past the man's defenses and take him off. But this is not only inappropriate, it would likely be fatal, as Boggs has an army and millions to feed it.

Instead, Scott gathers a small team of specialists and begins destroying chunks of Boggs' $200 million financial empire. He is counting on the man's paranoia, on his near psychotic rages, to bring illegal action upon which waiting authorities can act.

But despite good success, Scott seems unable to shove Boggs into a foolish move. Still, he has no choice. He must continue to attack, to find some way to force Boggs into the arms of the law. He's got to make it happen. Or die.

One mistake is one too many when there's no second chance.

From A Review

If this book does not get your adrenalin pumping, I don’t know what will. It is well written and fast paced. The action only takes temporary breaks. Does good win over evil in this tale? You will want to read it to find out.

Bob McElwain introduces the action in the first couple of pages and keeps it going until the very end. He even keeps a surprise or two for the end. Lethal Wind is a good read for anyone looking for action and adventure.

From The Author

Lethal Wind kind of got out of hand. I loved doing the research. Then one slick event led to another. And soon I had a tale that is too long.

While the actions the hero takes are reasonable, and he is certainly capable of executing each effectively, the sheer number of such "adventures" makes Scott Macklen a bit too much; nobody could survive such a succession of high risk ventures.

Still, I remain fascinated by who Scott is. And I love his partner, Wendy Katlan. Further, the supporting cast is uniformly good.

So while I feel it's a bit long, those who like characters and action will thoroughly enjoy this tale.
