An Alexander Steele Investigation
Alexander Steele is a retired African American private detective turned night club owner living in Philadelphia. He hoped to put the detective life behind him and move on with his longtime girlfriend Shakia. When one of Alex's friends brings him an encrypted travel drive with info on the blackout that was created three months before the recent Canadian blackout; Alex finds himself drawn into the well-crafted mind games of a madman known as Chameleon.
Chameleon is an American terrorist whose goal is to shut down the country by collapsing the economy of the United States of America. From the snow cover streets of Montreal, Canada to the tropical beaches of Nassau Alex follows the trail of clues and dead bodies as he inches closer to revealing the plot to bring down the entire U S government while narrowly surviving the constant attempts on his life.
Will Steele succeed in putting together all the clues before Chameleon turns the US into a third world country or will Steel’s name be added to Chameleon’s long list of names in the obituaries?
Blackout is actually the prequel to The Case of the Death Dealer. If you like Death Dealer. You'll love Blackout.
Private detective Alexander Steele has been around for quite sometime. You may not have heard of him but that’s about to change. The concept for the original novel began back in the year 2000. By the time I got around to outlining, and summarizing the story in 2001the World Trade Center was hit. Since Alexander Steele’s story involved an attack on American soil by foreigners, I decided to scrap the book out of respect to the families and friends who lost loved on that day.
Fast forward to 2009, Alex Steele comes to life in his first novel titled Blackout. Before you rush out to pick up your copy I should tell you that Blackout has not been published yet. Below is a summary of the story also a link to the website. So here we are in the summer of 2010 and once again Alex Steele comes out of retirement in an attempt to prevent a huge shipment of lethal drugs from hitting the streets of Philly. He has to move fast in order to save the thousands of lives that are in jeopardy. The end of this story will surprise you.
