Abstract

Novel excerpt from the work entitled: Convenience of Corruption. Portion of a conspiracy thriller novel that explores the undercurrent of drug and human trafficking occurring daily on a global scale. Selections from the larger project come at roughly the halfway point in the novel. Characters fit into a larger puzzle that involves northern Nevada, High Drug Trafficking Areas, undercover DEA agents, and a global network of cartels (aka global Mafia). Each of the characters is (or has been) on a journey of enlightenment. The manuscript is non-chronological and includes brief factoids and epistolary media that provide some context for the narration that follows. This is a multigenre work with a subtext that addresses race, class, gender, and literacy issues currently in the mainstream.
