As part of December's Art Walk, Dom Soto is having a book signing/Penelope House fund-raiser at the Bike Shop on December 13. He is donating part of the proceeds from the sale of "Fire's Shadow: Operation Skymaster" to the Domestic Violence Shelter Program.

Like his previous book, "Fire's Shadow" deals with criminal law prosecutions in Mobile's federal system and might hold some local interest. The print and ebook versions of both books are available on Amazon, but here's a chance to give something back to the local community.

Here's a blurb:

What was formerly the United States Customs Service initiated Operation Skymaster, an undercover operation headquartered in the seemingly quiet Southern city of Mobile, Alabama. The agency recruited some major league players, gangsters associated with some of the most notorious names in the dope world. They pardoned their previous sins and gave them a sanitized new start on life. They were given generous living stipends, promised cash rewards based upon results and let loose.

And that was the rub. The Skymaster operatives were essentially US-certified “made men”; their pasts had been obscured, they were impervious, they could lie on the stand and be rewarded for it, they could do what they wanted and, because they were part of a governmental crime family, they were protected. Sooner or later this mix was destined to become a recipe for disaster.
