After 14 months of riding riverboats in Viet Nam, TJ Hamlin receives orders to Naval Air Station backyard duty in his hometown of Corpus Christi. It has been three years since he has seen his brothers from the club, and he was looking forward to long rides in the South Texas sun on his old ’59 custom Harley. Little did he know he would end up working undercover for the Navy as a bouncer in a local bar, running for his life, and becoming involved in taking down a drug ring within his own motorcycle club.
In TJ's Ride, an action novel of approximately 70,000 words and the first in a planned series, TJ is torn between his dedication to the brothers in the club and his desire to stop drugs from tearing down the only real family he has known. When he discovers who is involved in the operation, he is torn even more, but when a friend is murdered, TJ is focused on one thing: revenging his friend at all costs.

About the Author
I was born in West Virginia but by the time I was six months old I had seen and done everything there was in the state so we moved to Texas. Until just before I started school we moved around south Texas but I started school in Corpus Christi and lived there until I left school to join the Navy my senior year in 1964. After a time in Viet Nam I was assigned to NAS (Naval Air Station) Corpus Christi and was stationed there for three years. While I was stationed in Corpus I did manage to get into a little trouble and much of it was due to my biking. I started working on motorcycles when I was thirteen, an old Triumph 650. When I received her, she was in baskets, but with the help of a friend of the family I got her together and running, but it wasn't a Harley. I got my hands on a 1959 Panhead and began rebuilding my second motorcycle; this one became the love of my life. I began riding with clubs at a young age and, in fact, belonged to one before I left for Viet Nam. Upon returning I once again began riding with them. I have ridden with clubs in Texas, Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio and Maryland.

Good read, though i think i would have enjoyed it better if I wasn't totally clueless about motorcycles. Though I'd read the 2nd book just to see what happens next w/ TJ (i'll just skim over the well detailed description of the bikes).
