New novel in "Banjo" series: BANJO MAMBO

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

Check out my latest novel (7th in banjo series):


BANJO MAMBO: God Conversations on Two (In Kikongo)


BANJO MAMBO: God Conversations on Two (In Kikongo) (Another Sam Stone novel Book 7) by [Hood, Jack B.]

Sam Stone, a retired Assistant U.S. Attorney and banjo player, along with his family and friends, take on murderous human traffickers in Alabama and Cuba in order to save a ten year old Cuban-American girl who has been trafficked. The plot is set against the backdrop of the 150 billion dollar human trafficking business worldwide. There is more human trafficking in and though Alabama today than there was in 1860. It affects all states and is the civil and human rights issue of today.


You can download the novel for free during a special promotion scheduled for January 6 through January 8, 2018. Otherwise it costs $0.99 to download to a Kindle device.

Note that the Kindle App for reading downloads is free.
