Mystery
Rating: 4 Cups

Stanford Lichwick has any number of phony ID cards or credit cards that he can easily use if necessary. His mission sends him to the Biloxi, Mississippi area where he poses as a well-meaning eco-terrorist, to blow up the newest and largest bridge.

Robert ‘Redball’ Redding is a retired STOCKCAR racing champion. Now he works as the chief prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice. Every penny he earns as chief prosecutor, he and his wife, Melissa, send to the Robert Redding Foundation, a non-profit, they set up for hearing-impaired children.

There are plans for the world’s largest racetrack, to include a golf course and a casino hotel. All Stan has to do is plant the C-4 and leave. If it took violence as a tactic in the destruction of the bridge, it has to be done quickly. The Pointe aux Chenes Bridge has to be stopped by any means. He needs to focus on the cause for the Che Guevara and what he would obtain from the movement once the mission is completed. After his body is found scattered in pieces, in the water, it brings on an investigation. Stan cannot be prosecuted since he is dead so whoever is behind must be found. Miles Hinton, Robert’s STOCKCAR president, and golf-car traveling buddy, knows that eighty million dollars was committed to that bridge. He urges Robert to go down and take a look. When he arrives in Biloxi and checks in at the Montgomery House Bed and Breakfast, he is greeted by Constance Saitini, a widow, who runs the B&B. Robert is thrown into the search for who committed a federal crime. Was it politics? Or was someone smuggling on the side? Robert and the special agents work around the clock to unlock the mystery before it is too late.

At first I was not sure if I would be able to continue reading the book after I started. There were some deep moments, along with a myriad of cast members that continued to appear but once all the players were in their prospective places, it was an intriguing read trying to figure out who was really behind all the dirty dealings. With the special agents, lawyers, politicians and shady individuals, the book grew into a full force mystery that is quite entertaining. Steve Eubanks has written an impressive book with many twists and turns that takes the reader on a fast ride where only the strong will endure the long haul.
