  • POINT DECEPTION on July 19, 2012

    POINT DECEPTION by Jim Gilliam Point Deception, is about a guy named Tim Kelly, who at the age of 14, ran away and joined the United States Coast Guard. He later signed up to fight in Vietnam to escape a court martial. While in Vietnam he found himself dealing with the loss of his friends. He received a dishonorable discharge after fighting in an Air Force officer’s club. Soon after, he finds himself in the midst of an undercover narcotics taskforce. He later finds himself at the mercy of the drug cartel, once his cover is blown. Rodolfo Guzman, a Kingpin in the powerful Campeche Drug Cartel sort of what you would call, raised Tim, was the person he was actually investigating. Tim who had an attachment to Rodolfo, was reluctant at first about doing it, but volunteered to do it anyway. After 14 months of hard work, an enforcer, in the cartel took pictures of Tim with Officer Dave Holt. He found the link that would prove that he was an undercover narcotics agent. There was another side to that, Dave Holt was going to soon be his father-in-law. Faced with the information, Rodolfo has to decide what to do with him. He decides at first to get him hooked on heroin, while he talks to the Don. He knows the Don is going to want him killed, but he can’t do that. He knows that Deputy Holt is his soon to be stepfather. He knows that Tim is telling the truth about it, but he can’t prove that, so he has to listen to the Don or follow his heart. There is just to much to list here, if you want to know more about the book, read it!!! I give this review a five star rating. You get a book about the military, cops, and a drug cartel, you have a great read on your hands. FTC GUIDELINES: I RECEIVED THIS BOOK FOR FREE FROM THE AUTHOR JIM GILLIAM FOR THIS REVIEW.
