Vegas Bound Author Number 3! John Addiego

 I am delighted that John is going to be with us in Las Vegas! John is a relatively new author with OTP...his novel was released in January, 2015. 

John Addiego has published two previous novels as well as several stories and
poems in literary magazines. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, he is the
former Poetry Editor of the Northwest Review and the recipient of an MFA in creative writing. 

He lives in Corvallis, Oregon. (Does this mean he could have car-pooled with Michelle to the conference?)

Tropical storm winds topple a tree in Nicaragua, unearthing the bones of three men killed twenty years ago. Frank Alvarado, an American cop who’s come to Central America on a personal mission to retrieve a little boy, is urged by a priest to help in the murder investigation. Traveling down the San Juan River in search of the boy, Alvarado gets entangled with drug-runners in a web of deceit leading to the boy’s whereabouts: the hidden compound of El Tigrillo (The Jaguar), a sadistic mercenary commander. Here, in the heart of the jungle, Alvarado finds the source of old crimes and new as he discovers the identity of the triple murderer.
THE JAGUAR TREE is available in paper and Kindle formats, and can be shopped on Amazon.com and OTP's online book store at:  http://www.oaktreebooks.com/Bookstore/jaguartree.html

I am looking forward to meeting John and, of course, to finding out if there is another FRANK ALVARADO adventure in the works!

Nice to have a picture to go with the names of fellow authors I don't yet know. The book sounds wonderful, John. I can't make the conference again this year, so enjoy it for me, too.

Billie, thank you for this wonderful post! I must warn you and other OTP friends that the photo is 7 or 8 years old, and I think I may look more mature now, maybe more of a geezer who's probably no more mature in any other sense. Anyway, I am psyched about meeting people and seeing Vegas after passing through that part of the world about 45 years ago. I think it has probably changed a little.
