Paul Barra loves a good mystery and so writes them with thought and enthusiasm. His plots draw you deep into twisting and turning layers of intrigue featuring colorful gutsy characters willing to follow the signs and signals even if it means trading punches. You’ll enjoy his ability to draw from real world experience including five years as a naval officer (earning the Bronze Star with Combat “V” and the Combat Action ribbon for his work on the rivers of South Vietnam) and from his keen descriptions of diverse places –from the Mekong Delta to the Black Hills of Wyoming, from San Diego to the Poconos and many others in between. Feel like handing out some bruises while sorting out the clues? Barra’s ready when you are.  More
