About the Author

David Hume was born in Boston and spent his early years in Eagle Pass, Texas. He graduated from the Saint James School, Saint James, Maryland, and received his BA (Social Science) and JD from the University of Baltimore. He also studied as a Research Fellow at the University of Delaware's College of Marine Studies, specializing in legal-environmental issues. He is a life member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity and the United States Naval Institute. Hume served as Chief of Police, Little Creek, Delaware, and as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Delaware, assigned to the Department of Natural Resources. He also served in the US Coast Guard, reaching the rank of Lieutenant. Some of his assignments included Assistant Legal Officer, Intelligence Officer (Miami Seventh Coast Guard District Headquarters) and Chief of Intelligence and Law Enforcement Division (Greater Antilles Section). While serving in the capacity of Intelligence Officer, Hume was ordered to Colombia in 1984 after the assassination of Colombia's Attorney General, Rodrigo Lara Bonilla. He was assigned to the Colombian Navy's Atlantic Headquarters in Cartagena as the Liaison and Intelligence Officer for the first multi-national maritime drug campaign, known by its military code name; "Operation Wagon Wheel". From 1984-1988, Hume served in various parts of South and Central America in his capacity as Intelligence Officer. In Colombia, Hume conducted anti-drug operations with the Colombian Navy, Colombian Marine Corps and the"Anti-Narcotics Group" of the Colombian National Police. His work in Colombia was characterized by the Coast Guard in his second award of the Coast Guard Commendation Medal as, "crucial to the international community's success against narcoterrorism". David Hume presently serves as a security consultant, specializing in physical, electronic and maritime security solutions for heavy industry, maritime transportation and energy companies doing business in Central and South America. His security experience includes the preparation and completion of security projects in 32 countries in North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
