NOVEL INTRO AND PHOTOS

RUM RUNNER—PROHIBITION dives deep into 1920s Detroit’s world of elegant speakeasies and raucous jazz clubs, cast against the backdrop of mogul-creating industries.

As Jack battles the Purples, our emotionally impaired aviator’s world is turned upside down when his path crosses Ava Murphy, an orphaned Latina-Irish customs attorney. They begin a slow burn, bumpy romance, neither one sure about the other. As Jack confronts his past demons, will Ava become his nemesis or the love of his life?

WHAT READERS SAY

“Rum Runner transports us to post-WWI America, a world we think we know from history and literature - but do we really? A rollicking adventure that speaks to eternal truths about the nature of men and women under extreme pressure while entertaining us from start to finish." - John Feeley, USMC Aviator, former U.S. Ambassador

“As a big fan of action novels and historical fiction, I enjoyed being immersed in a place and time I knew very little about.  Detroit, during prohibition, was humming with activity and makes a great backdrop for Rum Runner’s expansive cast of unique, diverse, and well-drawn characters.  Packed with multiple well-integrated plot lines and filled with nuggets of information about technology and contemporaneous society, it is classic storytelling.” - Terry Kelly, USMC Aviator, History Enthusiast

“It seems as though gun smoke rises from the text as muzzles flash between the pages. Rum Runner is Indiana Jones on steroids. Speed boats, airplanes, fast cars, cops, gangsters, tycoons, good guys, flappers, and hot ladies make for a steamy, fast-paced ‘can’t put it down’ page turner." - Jim Nunn, CDR USN (Ret.) NAVY Fighter Pilot and Test Pilot

"I read an advanced copy of Rum Runner; while I normally choose nonfiction, this book was a delightful surprise. I'm a woman & enjoyed the engaging romance story as well as the fast-paced action-adventure. After the first two chapters, I found myself all-in, looking forward to my daily book time, discovering "what was next" in the lives of each character.

Overall, a terrific read; it had elements of adventure, romance, and old-world thuggery, all mixed with a subtle elegance. Perfect & unique for my book club. Highly recommend!"
