The Mosquito Sting

About the Book

A struggling, one-time famous musician’s daughter disappears while working as a volunteer in the jungles of eastern Nigeria. The frantic father searches for her in vain. In an attempt to assuage the guilt he feels over things he should have done in his life, he creates the largest counterfeit operation in the world to fund philanthropic projects in Africa. In the process, he and a quirky band of misfits including a reclusive MIT genius and a former octagon cage-fighter perform an elaborate con on a ruthless Mexican cartel and corrupt Indian Casino. All this while barely staying one step ahead of the Secret Service who’s hot on the trail. From the production headquarters in a hidden cave in Northern California to Los Angeles to Tijuana to the Grand Cayman Islands, and ultimately back to Africa, “The Mosquito Sting” is a modern tale of good and evil and love and enduring friendships.
