About the Author

Controversial novelist Nicholas Black is the author of several fiction and non-fiction works including Soul's Harbor: True Adventures of Medic-13, The Last American Mercenary, See Jack Die, and Walking Ghost: Welcome to Terrorist University.
Security consultant in Mexico, Central America, Spain, France, and Northern Africa, he also served in the coveted French Foreign Legion while he was on the run from the Federal Government for refusing to cooperate with a murder investigation.

At one time, Mr. Black was alleged by the US Federal Government to be an "arms trafficker," as well as a member of a group of men who, "...carried out contract killings."  There are many far-fetched and fancy rumors surrounding Mr. Black's past.

He now trains and fights in Mixed-Martial Arts.  As an expert in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, and other combative tactics, he trains both professional fighters, security teams, and law enforcement in the art of armed and unarmed combat/unconventional warfare.

Whenever he isn't throwing punches, he's probably working on his next novel.  Find him on Facebook:  Nicholas Black or email him directly: nicholasblack60@gmail.comOther books by Nicholas Black:

This is a gangland thriller with thugs and assassins and government conspiracy. It's violent from the first page to the last. You need to prepare yourself for this book. The Messenger is bloody!

The story is well thought out, the characters, interesting. There are enough twists and turns to hold the reader's attention. Misspelled words, poorly constructed sentences, and many punctuation errors ruin an otherwise good read. It appears that the author was too lazy to reread the manuscript and make corrections. That does no credit to the publishers either, unless no publisher would take it.

From the opening pages to the very end this book is all action. With wealthy drug lords battling each other for control of their turf and their dislike of each others customs and background, along with a very efficient professional contract killer,with a hint of the Russian Mafia, this book will hold your attention. Black & DeSaint did not pull any punches in this story. It is all in your face from beginning to end. Not for the faint of heart.

Good and complex plots that kept the reader interested. The book would benefit from a careful proof reading, however.

First book I've read by Black and DeSaint and liked their style. This was a page turner with lots of action, sex and intrigue. Loved the character Voodoo. Would recommend.
