About The Book

"Las Cruces," or "The Crosses," is set against the modern day underworld of drugs and drug money, moving from staggeringly beautiful Southern California of decades past, to sunny Florida, where planes buzz the tropical skies making illicit sojourns to bring drugs into a nation relentlessly hungry for them, in exchange for endless amounts of money. Meanwhile, in New York, Wall Street power brokers wash the cash, then employ it to steer global business, national economics, and international politics.

Jake Reyes is headed for a lifetime of failure, as he heaps problem upon problem, ostensibly for good reasons but rarely for good results, until he’s entangled in a web of dangerous people on both sides of the law.

Jake faces a final “crossing” that could keep him alive, and restore value to his life. He has a plan, but his plans have always proven to be sources of problems rather than sources of solutions, so he doesn’t know if he can fully trust himself. Enemies are getting close, and time has run out.

He is 43 years old, a devoted husband, and father of three beautiful, staggeringly intelligent, and far more promising offspring than himself.
