Going Going Gone

Now alone in the Caribbean, Tony decides to return to the States, but to stay clear of his criminal contacts there. He calls Doc, the contractor that had helped him learn enough to be Engineer on the big motor yacht he had gone to Europe on. In Miami he soon learns Doc is much more than he thought he was. He is offered the opportunity to be part of an important Miami Cuban's big deal. He takes it because the operation is to take place on the West coast in areas he is familiar with. It turns out to be a huge and painful disaster. He swears off all crime but the excitement of action soon sucks him into a deal in New Orleans. He then takes a deal doing what he has done before, bringing a load of marijuana up from the islands on a sailboat. From beginning to end the only good thing about the deal is Babe, the very sex-oriented crew that went with the deal. About the time he knows she is his true love disaster strikes. Babe and all his criminal associates think he his dead. Deciding to have nothing more to ever do with drugs, he takes a Mate's job on a rusty old freighter, finds Babe, his true love, is arrested for something he didn't do, and is offered an escape from his past. AUTHORS BIO The weight of the responsibility of having a pregnant wife ended my college experience at the end of the first year. Education in the diversity of humankind, and how to survive it and prosper led me in and out of too many cultural milieus to list in this effort. I became addicted to the freedom and adventure that the sea and seaports provided. Commercial fishermen, yachtsmen and their crews, and mariners from most varieties of vessels have been my life teachers. The Atlantic and Pacific ports of the US, the Caribbean Islands, the South and Central American ports around the Caribbean and ports of the Mediterranean were my windows into human activities until I retired to the Virgin Islands to use my experiences as grist for my writing. I have read that good police detectives think like crooks; I would have made a great detective. That talent has brought me very close to trouble several times when it became obvious to me there was illegal activity afoot and afloat, and those involved in it saw I understood what was going on. Surprisingly, they frequently tried to recruit me because I was obviously aware but minding my own business and keeping my mouth shut. Those encounters and my very active imagination have been the source of some of the material in most of my books---and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
