The Septuagenarian – An R-Rated Thriller, my first novel published in August, 2019, is where we first meet Bob, the retired septuagenarian judge and Bebe, his Labrador Retriever. The Septuagenarian and Bebe take a routine day-hike in the rugged mountains of northern California and stumble upon a horrible crime in progress, the brutal torture of a naked young girl. As he tries to rescue her, he is shot by her torturer. He later recognizes the torturer as a member of a three-person team of federal officials from Washington, D.C. in town to make a presentation to local county government, and realizes that the crime he witnessed doesn’t involve merely a lone killer, or even a serial killer, but something much more sinister, an international human trafficking organization that reaches into the highest levels of the United States government. He also learns that no law enforcement agency has made a genuine attempt to solve the crime. One member of the Washington D.C. delegation is a beautiful black lady, or BBL, as he calls her, named Brenda LeHane. After satisfying himself that the BBL is not part of the criminal organization, he enlists her as an ally to bring the killer to justice. With Bebe’s help (“I’ve got your back,” she says), he and the BBL take the law into their own hands to track down the killer. Their dangerous adventures sweep through the remote mountains of far northern California, Atlanta, GA, Washington, D.C., the beaches of Maui, and climaxes at remoteMedicine Lake. This is a page turner you won’t want to put down.
