This is a novel of identity and betrayal wherein the protagonist has the spirit, energy, and intelligence to survive in circumstances that would have otherwise debased and finally killed him. et in Miami and Central America during the 70s, Smoke is the story of a journey that begins when Jim Smyth, a young Marine returning from combat in Viet Nam, is brilliantly manipulated by an anonymous adversary with ties to the highest levels of U.S. government.

As a ship owner retired from the hurly-burly environment of the waterfront, Jeremy Chester has had more than his share of personal experience with the kinds of conflict and adventure that take place in his debut novel, Smoke. His career, trading between the US, the Caribbean, and Central and South America, thrust him into hair raising situations and intimate dealings with dictators, federal agents, mafia capos, industrialists, smugglers, and assassins.

Chester is also a retired U.S. Army officer, ranger and airborne qualified, having served with the First Division. He now divides his time between homes in Florida, Montana and Norway, and extensive travels with his wife Britt Knai, a collector and trader of ethnographic art.
