Chuck Kimball announces release of ‘The Yucatan Connection’

News Image

For many years Chuck Kimball has been entertained by enjoyable action and fiction thrillers. The state of Yucatan, where he spent time, is a region that evokes mystery, an element of suspense. Although rich in action involving violence, “The Yucatan Connection” (published by AuthorHouse) offers a soft side that even the most avid action lovers will appreciate.

This thriller fiction book depicts the ingenious innovations in the field of drug and arms smuggling into the United States, and the difficulties these inventive methods bring to the agents who are fighting the illegal traffic. “The Yucatan Connection” follows the story of two Black Ops hired by the government to help in the eradication of drug smuggling into the United States. This monumental endeavor takes the two agents to Mexico and South America where they become entangled in a series of dangerous, suspenseful, and occasionally hilarious situations while chasing drug lords.

Kimball pens a thriller fiction with a sense of humor, featuring the same deep black ops private operators who have dedicated their lives to helping the President of the United States, often by working outside the law and by avoiding bureaucratic handicaps.

An excerpt from this book:
Lyle looked into Yitro’s eyes; they were beginning to gloss over. He took his left hand to pry open Yitro’s mouth to pull out his gold teeth. Lacking the proper tools, he ended up digging out the two gold teeth with a knife and a screwdriver. Except for the two front teeth, rescuing the gold from his mouth took a while. Yitro by then, with great pain, had bled out and died.
