|About the Book|
Dog Soldiers MC: The Beginning is a Prequel to the first novel and it starts out in the Hellish combat of the Vietnam War.That’s where Pete Savage first meets his Half-Breed Indian comrade, Billy Laughing Dog. One night in the jungle of the Nam they decided that when and if they ever get “Back to the World’ they are going to ride their motorcycle’s together in the great Southwest of Texas and New Mexico.Then they plan to live every dam moment of life to the very limit and to the very fullest!But the war and its Evil isnt going to leave itself behind for them. Billy Laughing Dog’s cousin, Trueblood was supposed to be back from the Nam to ride with them. Only Trueblood comes back in a stainless steel GI coffin. Then that coffin is desecrated and Billy’s cousin’s corpse is thrown out on the ground in the graveyard! Who would do such a terrible thing and why!The answer involves a Veteran psychopath who once carried the severed head of a Chinese Heroin dealer in a pilot’s helmet bag through the streets of Saigon. He took the head out of the bag and worked the jaw up and down with his hands to make it ‘talk’. Mr. Chang’s head then ‘tells’ Saigon Heroin dealer that he wants two kilos of ‘China White’ sold to the ‘crazy man’. China White was the best two kilos of smack that blood can buy.Yet Billy Laughing Dog can’t let his cousin’s spirit wonder forever in the dark of the afterlife and so his grave’s desecration must be avenged. When Billy and Savage discover the identity of the man likely responsible it turns out he is back in El Paso and a wanted man with a bounty on his head by the DA.So Pete Savage and Billy laughing Dog go for that ride they promised themselves while in the Nam. Only that journey plunges them into another and stranger kind of war!Pete Savage wants to help his buddy Billy find the man who dug up his cousin’s grave … and the bounty money would come in handy too. But somehow the trail mysteriously seems to keep leading them back to the Reservation. Pete is starting to wonder about the ‘Sky People’ and the ‘Great Circle’ that the Medicine Man Santos spoke about. It is a ‘spiritual world view’ that Billy believes in with every fiber of his being and that drives him at any cost to save the spirit of his dead cousin.What follows is a contrast between the horrific violence and bloodshed that men are capable of in their pursuit of ‘material gain’ … and the ‘flow of fate’ as perhaps dictated by ancient ‘tribal spiritual powers’.
