Rocky Mountain Moonshiner the 6th novel in my “Rocky Mountain Series” is now available in print and digital download on Amazon. Available in the link below.
All Trent Laneetee also known as The Crow wanted to do was support his family. Once the state of Colorado went dry during prohibition, the most profitable way to do that was to make and sell his own whiskey. Laneetee moonshine became almost legendary in all the surrounding mountain towns and encampments around Trent’s home in Gilpin County. The Laneetee whiskey stills, and operation were making his family more money than he could have ever dreamed of. As Trent’s growing legendary status and operation got larger and moved into other counties, his business drew the attention of the Denver Mafia. They gave Laneetee an ultimatum of sharing his business and profits with the Denver Mafia or going to war with them. What the gangsters from Denver did not know – was you did not threaten Trent Laneetee.
Setting the tone of Rocky Mountain Moonshiner:
“To Bash’s proposal, I will have to say, thank you, but no thank you. Your business is in Denver, our business remains strictly here in the mountains. We will not interfere in your business, and we will run our business as we see fit.”

Anger rushed over the youngest Alessandros face. He was pissed, and he didn’t care if I knew it or not. He stood suddenly and pointed his finger at me and almost shouted, “You do not seem to understand, Trent, this is a onetime offer. If I leave here without an agreement, there will never be another one extended. Do you capisce?”
