About Tucker Axum
Tucker takes St. Augustine's declaration to heart: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page." Tucker grew up in America's South, but traded the bayous for the far corners of the globe as a special agent for the US Government. Tucker has explored more than 65 countries on five continents. He has conducted criminal investigations, counter-terrorism missions, and provided executive protection to VIPs throughout the United States, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
He's an expert storyteller who believes that people yearn to be inspired and transported to other locales and eras. Whether following the quest of a journalist through America's Golden Age, nursing a battered plane back to earth, walking the somber grounds at Auschwitz, interrogating pirates off the coast of Kenya, or going toe-to-toe with the Japanese yakuza, Tucker understands that words touch our hearts and stimulate our minds.
Tucker's passions go beyond public service and writing, to include the martial arts and aviation. He holds a black belt in Lotus Self Defense, and is a licensed multi-engine pilot whose adventures and misadventures have been nationally published.
Tucker currently lives in California with his family, but his go-bag is always packed for the next mission.

The Bayou is a unique place to live and it provides a grit and passion to any who hail from it, including Cain Lemaire, an ex-Secret Service agent from New Orleans.

Needing a new direction for his life and with help from his sister who works in Japan, Cain takes a job in Tokyo as head of security detail for a very successful and important CEO. What he thought was a simple security post unravels a tangled web of corruption, greed, and extortion, but now Cain is on his own and without the wealth of resources he had with the Secret Service. Years of training and international missions kick in as he races to find justice that only way a born and raised Cajun can do.
