Here is the descriptive text:
Terry Rankin is the owner of Rankin Protective Services Inc, in Orlando, Florida. It’s a small company with a few very nice contracts. Terry has a meeting scheduled with Travis Warren, at his horse ranch just north of Ocala. He has invested a few months in negotiating for a very lucrative contract to provide bodyguard services to Mr. Warren and his family, and this is the morning when all of that time and effort are going to pay off for him.

He does not expect to walk into a home invasion.

As the thieves wrap up their looting, Rankin, along with Mr. and Mrs. Warren, are being held in Travis Warren’s office. Terry watches through the French doors along the rear wall of the room as five well-dressed but slightly disheveled Latino gentlemen cross the back lawn and step up onto the flagstone patio.

As the leader of the thieves raises his shotgun toward Rankin and the Warren’s, Terry watches in relief as the Latinos open fire into the backs of the invaders.

What Rankin doesn’t know is that the five Latinos have orders to shoot him on sight.

“Hog Valley” is the second novel in the Terry Rankin series of adventures in Florida. It is preceded by “The Big Bend” and followed by “Twisted Key” and “Lonesome Cove”.  All are available in both paperback and Kindle format (except for “Lonesome Cove”, which is not yet out in paper).

If you do not own a Kindle you can download the Kinder Reader application for your Mac, PC or handheld device from Amazon at no fee. And then you can download lots and lots of free books to read – again, NO FEE. Can you beat that for a real deal???

And pretty please with sugar on, one more itty-bitty little thing; please post a review for me on Amazon when you finish reading.

About Gary Showalter

Gary Showalter was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. He lived in Aruba, Florida and the Panama Canal Zone before joining the U.S. Army during the 1960s. Following his discharge from the Army, Mr. Showalter picked cotton in East Texas, baled hay in Ardmore Oklahoma, sold light bulbs in Los Angeles, California, and built cattle pens in Fallon, Nevada (during a blizzard, of course). After settling in Atlanta, Georgia, Mr. Showalter worked as a professional gardener before turning his hand to furniture making. In 1981, he moved to Israel, married, and raised four children while working as a furniture maker, silversmith, goldsmith, and ornamental wood turner. He served in the Israel Defense Forces Reserves for sixteen years, and when not on active duty he worked in government and private security. He has also served in senior management positions in two software development companies in Israel. During his time in Israel, Mr. Showalter published articles dealing with international terror and the Israel-Arab conflict in the Jerusalem Post, Israel national News and several political science web sites. Mr. Showalter returned to the United States in the fall of 2003, to care for an elderly parent. He published his first novel, “The Big Bend”, in the fall of 2008. His second novel, “Hog Valley”, is now in print. Mr. Showalter's third novel, “Twisted Key”, was published in the fall of 2011, and his fourth novel, "Lonesome Cove" is now available in Kindle format and should be published in paper near the end of 2012. Those words were written a few years ago. Frankly speaking, the literary well has dried up. I now live in Dunnellon, Fl, where I amworking as the caretaker on a horse farm and looking to build a workshop here on the property where I can get back to building furniture. With any luck I will be sinking piers some time early in November and hope to have the floor joists ready for flooring by the end of the month. I'll get back to you on that.
