Overview

In the late 1980's, a powerful leader of a Mexican drug cartel, Raoul Ramirez, has found some Mayan hieroglyphs that describe how to create a drug that was once used during ancient Mayan sporting events. He sets up a first time contact with Simon Fung, a leader of a Hong Kong triad, where he figures the drug can be distributed. Whan Chan, an elderly businessman in Hong Kong, informs Fung that he is not longer going to launder his money. Chan is soon found murdered and his son, Raymond, takes over the business. After working with the local police, and getting no results, Raymond becomes obsessed with finding his father's murderer. He asks his brother, Blake Morgan, a member of the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) and a one-man army, to find the man who murdered their father. Blake, who was never very close to his adopted father, has DEA matters that he must take care of before he can return to Hong Kong. But when Raymond ends up dead, Blake returns to Hong Kong and finds himself caught up the biggest drug creation plot he could ever image. Now he must trust his survival instincts and keep one step ahead of the Hong Kong triads and the Mexican drug cartels all the time searching for the murder's of his adopted family.

Dragon Tamer is the first book published by Ray Williams. It is a thriller involving DEA agent Blake Morgan and his struggle with not only his inner dragon, but the dragon-tattooed gangs in Hong Kong.

There is always one thing that I really enjoy in a good book: quick dialog. Dragon Tamer by Ray Williams does not disappoint in this category. This story moves along at a very good pace keeping the reading fully engrossed in this tale of drugs, technologyand deceit. I really enjoyed the main character of the story, Blake Morgan. I thought that this book was a good introduction for him and I hope to see more of him in future books. Ray Williams spins an interesting tale that all readers can enjoy. Since this book is considered a thriller, I thought that there could have been more things occurring in the story that would have gotten my heart beating a little faster. Overall, I really enjoyed the book and I found myself sneaking in a few pages of reading whenever I could. So, if you are looking for a tale about a DEA agent using his well-trained skills to hunt down the biggest drug threat in the last century, Dragon Tamer by CRay Williams is something you should pick up.

I rated this book a 7 out of 10.

Dragon Tamer is a must-read ! It is so exciting you can't put it down. Not only do you get to travel to Hong Kong, Mexico, and the Pacific West Coast, but the author also takes you on a journey through the dark world of drugs and the CIA. The main character, Blake Morgan, fights corruption while struggling with his own personal demons borne out of his childhood in a Prisoner of War camp. The characters are so special, I hope to meet them again in a sequel.
