The security situation on the Arizona-Mexico border has gotten bad…very bad. The Border Patrol is all but helpless, as narcos, terrorists, and common criminals cross the line with impunity.
One Arizona rancher has put up the money to hire a PMC to secure his land. He can’t afford much, or for long, but with work hard to come by, the former Special Operations contractors of Praetorian Security have jumped at the job.
It’s hot, boring, and uneventful at first. But when a bloodthirsty mob of cartel sicarios set their sights on taking over the ranch, the Praetorians have to dig in and fight.
It is a bloody, bullet-riddled siege in the desert hills. And it is Praetorian Security’s baptism by fire.
The novella that tells the story of just how Jeff and the boys got their hands on the cash they used on Socotra in Task Force Desperate is now out on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. (No plans for a paperback version for the moment; I might look at a collection of short work sometime in the future.)
Now, it might come to some people’s attention that it’s actually been out for a couple of days, and there was no pre-order. This was by design. I’ve been learning more about how to make independent publishing work lately (there will be a far more thorough post about that coming up soon). Part of that has been learning how to “train” Amazon’s algorithm to better target a book. This kind of cold launch has been an experiment in that learning. Still got some bugs to iron out, but I might be getting the hang of it.
More to come. In the meantime, go enjoy some more blood, bullets, and mayhem.
