About the Book

After moving on from the mean, violent streets of Los Angeles, retired sheriff's sergeant Tom Parker continues on with his International Private Investigations Agency and his refurbished rose-colored hotel on the beach in the Marianas Islands. Tom's partner is strongman Carlos Montano, Chamorro warrior, and together, they investigate a series of murders, kidnappings, frauds and assassinations, in locales as far away as the Philippines Islands. Tom still enjoys a "high" when he hears the clicking sounds of applied handcuffs to bad-ass suspects. Tom married his hotel manager, Cocina, and Carlos married the Chinese translator, Daisy. They cross paths with dozens of beautiful ladies and so far, have resisted other feminine wiles. Tom is still trying to master sail-boarding and belly boards, and finds great success in fishing in the northern islands with his two brothers. Tom and Carlos investigate a series of crazy and wild PI cases, including cases with Whitey the Tiger, and Leo the Bull. They're still in good stead with the professional police commissioner, but not so with her dopey cops. Be ready for some exciting and interesting adventures, and political intrigue, interlaced with romance and full moons.

About the Author

Joe Race was a policeman for 45 years in Los Angeles, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Micronesia, Kosovo and Bosnia, and most recently on Saipan with the Attorney General's Office. He was able to practice his police skills in riots, forest fires, earthquakes, floods, major drug rings, barricaded assailants, drunk celebrities, and crooked politicians. He finally had to retire when the bank robbers and pimps were easily outrunning him. He teaches Criminal Justice at the local college, and passes on his knowledge and "war stories" to the young, enthusiastic students.
