Author and law enforcement veteran, Rick White is pleased to announce the release of his new book, The Charon Unit. This book is the first of a fiction crime trilogy that blends criminal investigation, politics, murder, and gangs.
The Charon Unit is a covert team comprised of the nation's most elite gang investigators. They are assembled because a hybrid gang, with many members formerly trained by the U.S. Armed Forces, murder 44 people in Houston City Councilman's mansion during a private political party. Some of the murdered guests were U.S. Senators and Congressmen.
Local law enforcement call in the F.B.I. to assist in the investigation and, upon identifying the second dead politician, phone calls are made. Ultimately the Director of the F.B.I. refers his Houston Special Agent in Charge, Rob Munroe, to an unknown person who provides him a covert solution to this problem. The solution is an email code named: "The Charon Unit". Rob gets tasked with putting a 20 person team of elite gang investigators together to unofficially identify, extract, interrogate, and KILL members of this gang.
This name Charon comes from mythology and refers to the ferry boatman that carried the dead across the River Styx. Their mission is to identify, extract, interrogate, and kill members of this gang.
Come along on this adrenaline pumping, action-packed adventure.
