Murder On The Etowah River – New Short Story

I started a short story several months ago titled Murder on the Etowah, once completed it will be available through Amazon – (Kindle).

The story takes place in Cartersville and Rome, Georgia during the winter months. The main plot deals with an ex-drug trafficker Felipe Castillo that is found dead in the Etowah River, along with his wife and son. The reason being Felipe took off with ten million dollars and quit the cartel and that kind of behavior is never allowed by any drug cartel in the world today!

Simon and Santo team up to investigate the murders along with a trouble making DEA liaison based out of Atlanta. The two DEA agents match wits with a deadly troubleshooter for the drug cartel who has been sent to find the ten million dollars. A man known as Angle Cárdenas kills first and asks questions later as he hunts for anyone who can lead him to the ten million dollars. Angle leaves a long trail of human corpses behind him which makes it easier for Simon and Santo to track him by.  

However, there are several major twists for Simon and one of the twists deals with a beautiful Hispanic woman by the name of Delores. Her husband is being hunted by the drug cartel troubleshooter Angle Cárdenas. The lady’s husband was a lawyer for Felipe Castillo and he has the ten million dollars hidden in Bahamian bank accounts. But that’s not all, Felipe Castillo actually had three boys not just one. Delores and her husband have custody of the boys and Angle Cárdenas wants them dead also!

So get ready readers for a great action-thriller short story. You will also meet Cooper the Chocolate Labrador, my real life one year old lab puppy.
