Galician Memories. By Daniel Otero. ISBN-13: 978-1530915644.
Simon grows up to become a smuggler within this family of bootleggers whom try to survive against poverty. As Antonio’s liquor routes begin to prosper, the local Amo do fuma Chief, Esteban Concepcao begins to take notice. Esteban wants these routes for himself and when Antonio rejects his proposal, this mob boss will send his enforcer, Guillo. When one attempt of a shakedown against Simon fails, the Baixa family will become a target of Esteban’s ruthless ambitions. Jonathan, Antonio’s son takes a beating from Guillo that nearly cost him his life. Here’s where Simon does the unimaginable, a ‘hit’ on the mob boss and his enforcer.
Simon has to run and leave Galicia for good! Without any other alternatives, he escapes to France and foolishly joins the French Foreign Legion under a falsified alias. Is Simon’s service to France redemption or will it sink him further into hell’s depravity? Violence will be a part of Simon’s life, from the back roads of Galicia to the battlefields of the Balkans.
