About the Book

In the prequel, "Monkey Bottom", a former Navy Flag Officer, Chet Dillon, is forced out of the Navy after NCIS discovers and investigates an adulterous affair with a female government employee on his base. The admiral's mistress is murdered by his wife, who later dies in a horrific auto accident, caused indirectly by the admiral. In this sequel, Dillon relocates to Puerto Rico to hide from his shame and disgrace. He is hired as a liquor wholesale company sales rep to service Navy accounts in the Caribbean. Dillon's company pulls him back to Norfolk temporarily to assist in securing the liquor contract for the prospective Pamunkey Indian/City of Norfolk resort casino. In so doing, he becomes fair game for people seeking vengeance on him. Enter a Native American who does dirty work for his tribe and who seeks revenge for very different reasons. Does Dillon live or die? Is he subjected to 18th century Iroquois atrocities? The story takes the reader to former Navy bases in PR and Eleuthera, the Great Dismal Swamp, Navy Fleet HQ, and examines the casino project and wholesale liquor business that tie into Dillon's fate and an NCIS investigation.
