Based on a concept put forward to me by an avid reviewer of my current novel-in-progress, I’ve come up with an initial premise for a new story:
A Columbian drug lord watched his profits diminish over the years. Unable to increase market share because of a shrinking consumer base and a new international competitor, a dream directed him to form an unholy alliance.
Pablo López Moreno, head of the Barranquilla Cartel, struck a deal with Ramírez García Días, a regional leader within the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia (FARC). Little did Moreno know but he had initiated his own death warrant. Días had an unknown support group who wanted a foothold in South America – Islamic State.
Forced to flee, Moreno is captured by a small CIA team. Still fearing for his life, he spins a tale about using his money and manpower to destroy ISIS. Laws and rules of engagement mean nothing to him, only his life matters.
Will team leader AJ Bruce strike a deal to use Moreno’s proposal to turn the tables on ISIS and stop them from launching a concentrated attack on the United States? Or will they be too late? If successful, will Moreno’s reward be total control of Afghanistan’s poppy fields.
If you like this, please let me know. If you have any suggestions for this or any other plots, please send them my way. Any idea finding its way into a story will lead to a mention in the credits and a signed copy of the book, once published. Thanks for you help.
