About the Author
As a businessman Robert John DeLuca was compelled to operate within tightly restrictive parameters defined by market conditions, government regulations, and other restraining variables. Now as an author, however, he enjoys the wonderful freedom limited only by his own creativity and passion. He has always had a strong interest in writing, which he cultivated at Brown University and the University of Pittsburgh, where he earned BA and MBA degrees respectively. As a United States Marine he attained the rank of Captain and served in Vietnam. He left the service to enter business, where he worked primarily in banking and real estate development. After several years in Pittsburgh, he eventually relocated to Houston, where he founded his own firm. His extensive business background provides a strong platform and fertile resource in support of his writing endeavors. His literary works include “The Nelson Trilogy” consisting of the published “The Pact with the Devil”, a novel pitting a head-strong Texas businessman against a vicious Mexican drug lord, and sequel novels, “The Master of Deceit”, to be released in the summer of 2017, and a third saga which is in process. His two published non-fiction works: “The Perfect Pro Football Coach”, deals with NFL head coaching, and “Beatles, Books, and Bombs, and Beyond”, a bittersweet self-account of life as an ROTC student on an ultra-liberal Ivy League campus in the turbulent 1960’s and a tribute to fallen USMC Vietnam comrades. He has written articles on sports for periodicals and won first place in the Houston Writers House and Texas Authors, Inc. short story contests. His website is http://bdlauthor.com/ . A New Englander by birth and jarhead by choice, Mr. DeLuca left Boston before the Patriots stopped being a joke. He has raised a family of four sons, and resides with his awesome wife, grandchild-of-the-week, and alter ego, bullmastiff Stanley in Friendswood, Texas.

The Pact with the Devil is a page turner. Intertwining the frightening politics and ethics of the Mexican Drug Cartel leadership with the scheming business tactics of Texas land developers, the author drops us into the turbulence of deals gone awry, of families blown apart. The novel describes in detail border drug operations along with affordable housing conspiracies. The intrigue includes well-developed characters vacillating between love, loyalty and betrayal. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and look forward to the author's next novel.
