UPDATE 5/22/20: Some health issues set me back a few months, but I’m back editing the final draft. I hope to soon be able to send it off to a Copy Editor so I can publish by Christmas..
Synopsis: Three children camping with their parents in an Arizona campground disobey and sneak off into the dangerous nearby foothill caves seeking adventure. Drug and arms dealers and human traffickers have hollowed out secret camouflaged rooms inside the caves. They use them to store contraband and laundered cash as the first stop in a nationwide distribution network. The campground owner summons Chief Akumo, the head of the nearby Phoenix Police Substation, and his partner Officer Calvin Mauer, to aid in the search for the children. What happens during the search in the cave includes encounters with danger, discoveries, capture, and other twists with a surprise ending.
Estimated publication date is by Christmas of 2020.
