Background on how the story came together.
In 1992, I traveled into the Amazon Region of Peru for vacation. At the time, The Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso) of Peru, a Maoist guerilla organization, nearly overthrew the Peruvian government. I followed the group as they evolved over the years. Because there were many parallels to what is happening in our country today, I thought it would give background, in an exciting thriller, to what we’re up against as we fight to save freedom in the United States. Abimael Guzman, an elite university professor of philosophy, developed a Marxist ideology and recruited at college campuses, founded the group. They built their presence over the years_their ultimate goal was to demoralize and undermine the government of Peru_ in order to create a situation conducive to a violent coup which would put its leaders into power. At first, they targeted the military and the police_ and then they struck the people. After the Tarata bombing in Lima, Peru, which took out several blocks, the Shining Path began a week long strike against the Peruvian government and shut down the capital. President Fujimori had to crack down on the guerillas and sent the military after their leader, Abimael Guzman. He was captured and is still in prison today along with his wife.
The Shining Path split in two and adjusted their tactics after the capture of Guzman. Because of NAFTA, the U.S. had been focused on cocaine production in Columbia, so Peru slid under the radar and became the number one producer of coca paste. But then the U.S. woke up. The Shining Path focused on providing protection, for a fee, to the local coca farmers and delivering it to the Mexican cartels. Peruvians wanted nothing to do with American intervention in the coca trade. It was their national plant.
While Guzman was in charge, he filled half the ranks with women. Because they were known to be the most vicious, their assassination squads were, and still are today, the most requested.
The Switch opens at a mass grave in La Paz, Mexico, burial ground for La Monstrua, the most vicious sicaria to date. In a ripped from the headlines thriller, a three way partnership between the Shining Path, deadly Mexican sicarias, and the New Mexico child murdering jihadists, explode as they enter New Mexico across the porous border, and take down Microwave Mountain (this is where the telecommunications site is for Police, Fire, and EMT). They kidnap the CEO of CT&T telecommunications for ransom (to replenish their coffers after the Peruvian Government froze over $100 million in assets), and free Mexican sicaria, Sandra Ochoa Ramos, from prison.
Laura Loomer, investigative journalist, pairs up with FBI Agent Maria Quintana to expose the New Mexican jihadists, as Microwave Mountain is being attacked, after valuable information is received from La Monstrua.
After Microwave Mountain is taken down, chaos ensues. Politics become front and center. Not sure who to trust, Agent Quintana and Loomer will turn to friend, Enrique Tarrio, to have their backs.
This is a hair raising thriller that takes you from the usually tranquil town of Santa Fe, NM into Culiacan, Mexico, home to the greatest narco kingpins the world has ever seen, and wraps up in an explosive show down in the jungles of Peru.
P.S. This book is heavily researched with input from Laura Loomer (Jewish investigative journalist), Enrique Tarrio (Leader of The Proud Boys), and Alex Dunbar of CQB K9. Any errors are mine alone. I also took some liberty with Lucky’s personality in the story. Alex will shake his head probably. Lucky approved.
Laura Loomer and Enrique Tarrio are both running for Congress in Florida. Their Congressional campaigns in no way receive any money from this book. Laura Loomer, the investigative journalist, does share in profits which support her journalism work.
Here are a few of the locations and characters in the story.
