New thriller novel by Robert Gallant “Satan’s Stronghold” delves into the undercover hunt for hidden drug operation

After several decades of living in Louisiana, it struck me how easy it would be to hide out in the still-wild, still-treacherous bayous and deserted coastlines.

In the drenched forests and labyrinthine bayous of Louisiana’s swamp, drug dealers establish their foothold for smuggling throughout the state.

Robert Gallant’s new novel, “Satan’s Stronghold,” follows the story of a resourceful environmental studies graduate student, Chesney Barett, who must battle dangerous criminal adversaries when she agrees to help in a government agent’s search for a drug factory hidden in the swampland. IT combines intense research about Cajun culture and the Louisiana swampland wilderness with the real world ramifications of the drug smuggling trade.

“After several decades of living in Louisiana, it struck me how easy it would be to hide out in the still-wild, still-treacherous bayous and deserted coastlines,” Gallant said. “The idea that smugglers who very much have something to hide would hide there took root, and grew into the story for ‘Satan’s Stronghold’.”

Gallant took the advice of his now-deceased wife when writing his newest stories: focus on strong and independent female characters who aren’t reliant on a male character to shape their choices. He considers this one of the most valuable pieces of advice he’s ever received, and his next three planned novels following “Satan’s Stronghold” will all feature Chesney Barrett in a leading role.
