Synopsis: Ohio Salt is a detective novel involving intricate embezzlement schemes, murder, and decades old crimes dating back to the Kennedy administration. Private investigator Adrian Leblanc is a modern day Sam Spade who specializes in corporate crime. The author, Frank Dupuy, drew on his experiences as a federal agent and private investigator in writing this book.
About the Author: Frank Dupuy was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where his father was finishing his degree in petroleum engineering at LSU. When he was two years old, the family moved to Rosenberg, Texas. While Frank was in the 6th grade, his father was hired as the head of the Mexican operation for Gulf Sulphur. For three years, the Dupuy family resided in a mining camp in the jungles of southern Veracruz, an hour’s ride by boat from the nearest town of any size. During that time, Mrs. Dupuy taught Frank and his two younger brothers. When Frank started his freshman year of high school, the Dupuy’s moved to Mexico City where he attended the Colegio Americano, S.A through his junior year. He spent his senior year of high school at Memorial Senior High School in Spring Branch, Texas.
Mr. Dupuy attended the University of Texas at Austin for a semester, majored in extracurricular activities, and joined the Army. As a rifleman in the Americal Division in Vietnam in 1969, he was wounded twice and spent his last four months in a military hospital.
Returning to the University of Texas in the spring of 1970, Frank majored in Latin American Political Science, graduating in the fall of 1973. During his senior year, Dupuy was the head of security for a group of department stores in Austin, thus beginning his career in Loss Prevention and investigations.
After graduation, Dupuy worked as a private investigator in New Orleans until he was hired as a USINS Border Patrol Agent in 1974. He was assigned to Ysleta, a small station down-river from El Paso. After eighteen months, he transferred to Criminal Investigations in El Paso. Fourteen INS Criminal Investigators covered all of New Mexico and sixteen west Texas counties. Dupuy left the INS in 1978 and has since held executive loss prevention positions in manufacturing, banking and retail. As a private investigator specializing in corporate fraud and embezzlement, Dupuy traveled extensively, handling a variety of intricate and sensitive situations for numerous corporations and banks. He has a 90% success rate in solving crimes.
Bilingual in English and Spanish, Dupuy considers himself a "Texanized Cajun with Mexican tendencies". OHIO SALT is his first novel.
