The  DeSoto


Getting into Cuba was easy for Billy. Getting out however, not so easy, especially when you're wanted for murder ... of a Cuban policeman.

Billy is pulled into a world where he doesn't know a soul, can't speak the language and can't trust anyone. He is given one piece of advice as he's boarding the plane for Havana: "Watch your back..." 

Billy uncovers despicable evil and quickly discovers he's being set up to take the fall - and spend the rest of his life in a Cuban prison. The only way to make things right, stop the evil, and get out of Cuba is for Billy to play by his own rules... 

His life depends on it.



Billy Mack, a former baseball star, is now buying and fixing companies around the world, companies that require his unique skills to fix problems and eliminate threats. Trouble, however, seems to follow him and the companies he works with. But, Billy never runs from a fight, never compromises his morals even after realizing evil plays by a different set of rules. With his unique skills, Billy changes those rules and evil doesn’t see it coming.

From Vienna, London, Rome, Barcelona, Zürich, Dublin… and now from Havana, the Billy Mack mystery thrillers continue to take on a whole new chapter…

Johnny Mee is a Twin Cities-based writer of mystery - thrillers. He is currently putting the finishing touches on a political mystery - thriller set in a world turned upside down. He is also working on his 8th Billy Mack thriller - The Mozart Rule - set in Salzburg, Austria.

The story captured my imagination and slid me into the intrigue with Billy Mack. An engrossing plot.  

I thought the writing had a unique and original voice.

Amazon Review

It's refreshing to read a book in which the author respects the intelligence of the reader. This is a fast moving, easy read..
