A Deadly Decent Into Depths of Drugs in Big Business and Body Bags, Published by Outskirts Press

Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated action and adventure fiction book from Chicago, IL, author Lincoln R. Peters.

Chicago, IL, May 04, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Big Business and Body Bags: A Journey into the Deadly Drug Business by Lincoln R. Peters. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the action and adventure fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Big Business and Body Bags is also available in its 5.5 x 8.5 hardback edition with jacket. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/bigbusinessandbodybags was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

The book is a work of fiction and involves no living people. The story chronicles the life of a young man with no job skills and no education drifting along the saloon circuits and ending up in a big city street gang. There he is indoctrinated into all their reprehensible and vicious activities including the ultimate act of murder.

Johnny Howell was a typical young man growing up in the inner city streets and back alleys of Chicago. His life was no different that thousands of others like him; they were all poor and looking for a way to make some money. Johnny found a way, but it dragged him down into the deadly depths of the lucrative drug business. Johnny is a white man that the Mexicans call a gringo and the black men call a honky.

Selling drugs in the inner cities is a cash cow that has attracted the attention of all the major street gangs in the country. This has now even grown to include the murderous Mexican drug cartels. The drugs have accumulated into large supplies in Mexico, but the markets and the money are all up north of the U.S. border. This creates a murderous internecine battle for the shipping routes and the trafficking of the drugs into our country.

The book describes the methods and details of the penetration of the Mexican drug cartels operations into the northern cities. It also details their attempts to forge alliances with the local neighborhood street gangs. The locale for the story is in the author’s home town of Chicago. The steady flow of news reports of the brutal drug wars raging down on the Mexico border are reported almost daily. The ensuing battles among the Mexicans drug cartels and their government have produced more casualties than the treacherous wars going on in the Middle East right now.

Johnny Howell ended his career the same way all the other drug dealers did.

393 pages in length, Big Business and Body Bags: A Journey into the Deadly Drug Business is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the action and adventure fiction category.
