LAURIC PRESS IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF BLOOD RUST – DEATH OF THE CHINA DOLL BY W. HOCK HOCHHEIM. HOCK IS A WORLD RECOGNIZED SELF-DEFENSE TRAINER AND TEXAS AUTHOR.
Once an NYPD detective, Rusty was a rising rock star in the Organized Crimes Unit. Then, Mob members and corrupt cops lured Rusty to Grant’s Tomb and shot him in the head. The detective in Rusty died. The meat puppet Rusty is all that remains, a brain damaged, paranoid, criminal, psychopath terrorizing the streets of Newark, New Jersey.
Now, years later, Alphonso “The Crepe hanger,” one of the hit men who lured Rusty to Grant’s Tomb, reveals the old China Doll case Rusty solved was an elaborate con, executed by the Mob in an international drug smuggling conspiracy. Soon the State of Connecticut will execute Steverino Downing, the man convicted, for a crime he didn’t commit. And shooting Rusty was the Mob’s way of clearing up loose ends.
This news ignites something deep in Rusty’s exploded brain. He must find a way to free Downing. His obsession leads him to the Freedom Science Foundation, a group run by the internationally renowned Dr. Sad Prevell and Peter, a former SAS South African commando.
Rusty’s quest will take him from New York to the shipyards of South Africa and Shanghai. Can Rusty nail the pieces of his shattered mind back together? Can he beat the Mafia, corrupt cops, a Chinese Triad and Somalia pirates in time to save Downing’s life, and still somehow redeem his own?
