Operation Barbeque: A Hunter Nielson Novel
In Operation Barbeque it is 1979 and protagonist Hunter Nielson is a nineteen-year old small time slinger forced to leave town after a man he owes money to is found dead in his bathtub with a bag of blow between his legs, a gun on the floor and a McDonald’s straw between his fingers. Unfortunately, Hunter’s attempt to flee was useless, the thugs having tracked him down. In order to free his brother as ransom from the clutches of these thugs, Hunter lands a job as a disk jockey in a local strip club to pay off the money he owes.
Readers may recall the 1980s as a time of rampant corruption in Chicago where several high-profile political scandals took place, including the Operation Greylord and Operation Gambat judicial scandals. Hunter discovers such similar corruption when he is unwittingly thrust into a dangerous world of mobsters and a nationwide sting operation that begins in New Orleans with tentacles reaching to Denver, Las Vegas, and, of course, Chicago.
Readers will root for Hunter, who becomes a key FBI informant for an organized crime ring and must help investigators take down the mob in Operation Barbeque. Readers will also wonder what parts of the story actually happened to the author and what parts are from his very intriguing imagination.
