9780966447507: The Tunnel

Drug dealers are missing in Boston. It's not a bad thing, but a good thing! But what is making them disappear?

The Tunnel is a fast-paced novel about how the men in blue dispose of drug dealers in the City of Boston. Author Peter Mars, a former police officer in Boston knows the streets -- the drug trade and criminals on them, and the labyrinths of abandoned tunnels beneath them. Many cops in Boston and elsewhere do their best to battle the influence of drug dealers, but some look the other way. Others, the heroes of The Tunnel, decided to eliminate drug dealers by becoming judge, jury and executioner of those who are destroying society. The Tunnel is the gripping story of one such cop, Frank Conley. Conley discovers a cache of money during a routine fire investigation of a burned out drug laboratory. Since the money is unknown to anyone but himself and the dead criminals, he decides to use it to finance his own operation to rid the streets of the dealers. Conley is a man who believes his job is to make the world a better place to live, and this unexpected windfall becomes the financing for his plan. He, and several trusted men in his division, take on the mission of ridding the city of a few bad men. They buy a building with a cellar door that leads to one of the city's abandoned tunnels, and the officers begin to deal with crime and criminals on their own terms. If dealers are vanishing from the streets, is anyone sorry?

From the Back Cover:

In an age when the law sometimes seems to favor the worst of criminals, a few Boston cops are fed up with the system. Drug dealers and thugs rule the neighborhoods and prey on the innocent and not-so-innocent. A routine fire in a crack house gives Officer Frank Conley an idea and the cash to make it work. In the fast-paced story, Frank and a trusted few cops buy a building with a back door that leads to one of the city's abandoned tunnels, and the officers begin to deal with crime and criminals on their own terms. And, if dealers are vanishing from the streets, is anyone sorry?

The Tunnel is an action-packed adventure that is so real that you will wonder if it isn't all true. After all, author Peter Mars is a thirty-year police veteran with stories to tell from the beat. And under the streets of Boston, where dealers operate, are abandoned tunnels...

About the Author:

Peter Mars is a native of Brookline, Massachusetts. His undergraduate studies in criminal justice and police science were accomplished at Northeastern University. He has a masters degree in public administration from Columbia, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at that same institution.

He was a Boston area policeman for twelve years before moving to Maine, where he continued in police work as Chief of Administrative Services for the Kennebec County Sheriff's Office. In 1997, he took an early retirement to write of his experiences in law enforcement.

He recently completed his second book, A Taste for Money, a non-fiction work which evolves around the life of a police detective who has extorted money, guns and drugs from dealers, and converts those mediums to his own aggrandizement. Although he has been the catalyst in the death of another officer, as well as having broken many of the laws he has sworn to uphold, the book's main character has so far managed to beat the justice system. A Taste for Money is due to be published later this year.

Mars and his wife, Margery, live is a small town in south central Maine.
