The Golden Jackal is a story about a hanging, a homosexual encounter, a search for Ravine and a serial killer. During this episode Ross is drawn into a series of investigations one of which is a hanging in the small town where he lives and works. His friend Ely Crosby asked Ross for his help to find the murderer of his son’s lover and a juror seeks his help to stop a serial killers advances. Ross renews and solidifies his relationship with, SAIC Dan Sheppard of the FBI. Mickey is also approached by an old broken down Viet Nam chopper pilot who is suffering the after effects of Agent Orange. The pilot has with him a deteriorated old book half typed and half written in pencil. The book was left to his family by his grandfather. The cover was held together with rubber bands and the text had various quotes in it that lead nowhere, until, they started following a direct quote from the Bible in their search for Ravine. Mickey’s friends, family and team attempted to decipher what the words meant and this leads to an adventure in upstate New York. While this series of events is taking place Ross continues in his new lifestyle as part of the rich and famous. The Golden Jackal is an action packed story that brings back to Ross memories of his active military days where as a chopper pilot in Nam he was called by Charlie, the Golden Jackal. Michael “Mickey” Ross is a fictional character that I created within the scheme of my imagination. Although he is fictional I have gently infused many of my life’s real experiences into the soul of this imaginary character. Like the fictional character Ross, I spend my time in New York, the Hamptons, and along the Treasure Coast of Florida. Ross was literally totally retired and had more than enough money but he found more satisfaction doing P.I. investigations than he did when he was the lead detective on a NYC homicide case. He just couldn’t give up the thrill of the chase. In many ways Ross is the guy that many cops and ordinary people long to be like. Throughout this trilogy Mickey goes from the middle class world he was accustomed to into a higher social stratum where he experiences the lifestyles of the rich and famous. As Ross becomes older he realized that, during his lifetime, he had been more exposed to life’s experiences than anyone he knew. He never really appreciated the lifestyle he led until now as he looked back in retrospect. The days of riding the subway, taking the Q-36 bus and driving his Volkswagen Rabbit were gone. Now instead, he had become accustomed to The Ultimate Driving Machine and his Robertson Raven II chopper. It was my intent to write a series of books that are filled with fast, easy reading, entertaining stories that will hold the readers interest throughout the book. As the characters are developed and these stories progress Ross becomes a little older and wiser. He definitely appreciates the latter as opposed to the former One of my other pre-requisites in writing this Trilogy was to present each book as a Stand Alone novel and not subjugate the copy with fifty-cent words like subjugate. I hope you enjoy reading about him as much as I have enjoyed writing about him. Rich
