Why Don’t We Get Drunk by Chip Bell

Jake and Mike have arrived in Martinique, closing in on the elusive “Broker.” Tipped off to a location, they join an assault force provided by the French Government through the head of the DST, Philip Rostand.

Fighting their way through a beautiful island estate, Jake and Mike become separated, and when Jake makes his way into a secret study, he is attacked from behind and knocked unconscious.

Waking momentarily, he sees the shadowy outline of his attacker leaning over him, a form he seems to recognize before darkness claims him again. Jake is taken back to the time after his attack in Key West, as he dreams of a strange encounter with a beautiful woman who is not quite what she seems to be.

Will that dream ultimately lead Jake and Mike to the truth behind the mysterious “Broker” as their final confrontation grows near?


Driftwood: Stories from the Margarita Road by Anthony Lee Head

If You’ve Ever Dreamed of Running Away to Paradise, Driftwood Will Spark Your Secret Wanderlust

This captivating book follows modern-day nomads escaping the rat race in search of a fresh start. Fleeing boredom, bad marriages, and dead-end jobs, these adventurers wander south to Playa Paraiso-a lush, unspoiled village on Mexico’s idyllic Caribbean coast. There they find the unpredictable, hedonistic, and sometimes frightening world of the tropics.
