J.L. Curtis has written a second book The Grey Man – Payback, and he invited me along for the ride to design and illustrate the cover. This is quite an honor because Mr. Curtis is quite a writer – his first novel sold well and had tremendous reviews. His books are rock solid adventure yarns that would make great movies! I appreciate Jim’s decision to use my work because action adventure novels are certainly not something I get to do every day. I’d also like to point out that this is his second book to come out this year! While we were putting the first novel to bed in March, he was already working on book two – amazing!
Deputy Sheriff John Cronin and his granddaughter, Jesse, are preparing for Jesse’s upcoming wedding to her Marine when the Cartel decides to murder some South Texas cops as a payback for arresting their drug smugglers. They send a hit squad to kill Cronin, Jesse, and everyone close to the family. The only problem? They missed the old man. Leaving his badge behind, John Cronin, Francisco and a few others head south to teach them a lesson about what old school western justice really means.
