Jerome Track He began life as a throwaway child in a dying Earth its inhabitants oblivious of their self-inflicted demise. To understand his own life he begins to write.
Geronimo is the first book of his autobiography. The eight books of The War Whisperer are difficult to pidgeonhole. It is science fiction. An apt name in a school where nothing was what it appeared. It was a school of savants designed to produce a corps of assassins to fill the ranks of Misty, a secret and quite illegal branch of the C. Randall J. Black Academy was as enlightening as it was dark, an institution filled with love and vengeance, brilliance and death.
This school, tucked away in the Maine Enchanteds, was where Jerome Track began changing the world. Black is the second book of his autobiography. It was the code name for an illegal branch of the CIA whose purpose it was to make the adjustments needed in foreign and domestic areas that politics, democracy, and the demands for "transparency" had made unworkable.
Jerome Track and Monkey House in Misty combined to make a force that truly changed the world. After its disastrous Algerian battle debut, Billy Kilroy, the new commander of "The Lost Battalion" needed a way to revolutionize urban warfare and how to sell it to the Army. The Hook, however, still stood without an answer. Unless an answer could be found, that patch of freedom would be crushed out of existence, thousands would die, and millions would be returned to oppression.
It was a problem for a particular kind of savant, but Jerry Track first needed to find something in which to believe. To honor the father of freelands, Juan-Diego Aguilar, as well as the history Texas had as part of the union, the leaders of Texas Secession ask Aguilar to deliver to the U. Jerry retires and returns to Texas to bury his oldest friend and then to seek a freeland home, family, and to right an old wrong.
