In the 1960s I was stationed at the Coast Guard radio station located above San Bruno (Sweeny Ridge). I have recently published my first novel, parts of which are set in the San Bruno area. Here is the publisher's press release:
Suspense Storytelling at its Best
Jim Gilliam writes a suspense thriller, Point Deception, packed full of criminal activities, military action, and a likeable protagonist with a tortured soul.
Tim Kelly lies about his age and joins the Coast Guard at 14.
Almost a decade later, Tim’s military career takes him to Galveston, Texas where he’s reunited with his estranged father, James, a union organizer for a seafarers union.
Tortured for years from the troubled relationship with his father, Tim is eager to make amends and form a lasting bond with James. Before the two can make up for lost time, James is beaten to death by a union-busting criminal.
Devastated by his loss, Tim transfers to San Francisco where he butts heads with his commanding officer. Consumed by anger and facing a court martial, Tim elects to go to Vietnam for combat duty. At war with himself and now with the enemy, he finds some solace when he meets three friends from his past. But death follows Tim and his buddies are killed by friendly fire. Returning home to nothing but bad memories and with a less than honorable discharge, Tim begins a new life as an undercover DEA agent.
Earning the trust of one of the most infamous kingpins in the drug cartel, Tim is privy to some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. More tragedy awaits Tim when his cover is blown and he is tortured by experts. There seems to be no way out. Tim waits for the rescue that may come too late!
Jim Gilliam’s novel moves like a freight train through a tight, spellbinding storyline. An engaging and fast-paced suspense thriller, Point Deception is a riveting page-turner, based on true events.
