Praise for The Cartel Enforcers

“Nail-biting twists, expertly paced, with many surprises and genuine thrills.”--
Award-winning and bestselling True Crime Author and Publisher, RJ Parker


“Acts of courage and compassion are still the backbone of our noble profession. What C. L. Swinney has done in this fast-paced novel, second in the Bill Dix series, is amazing and exemplifies the guts behind a badge. But,
he did the book, is extraordinary.”--
Alameda County Sheriff, Greg Ahern


“C. L. Swinney captures the essence of what crime fiction was intended to be, realistic and nail-biting (a trait shared with his man character, Bill Dix). Once I read the book I was hooked. When I learned the story behind the story, I was glad he asked for my support.”--
San Mateo County Sheriff, Greg Munks


“I had the opportunity to read C. L. Swinney’s latest thriller,
The Cartel Enforcers
, and was among other things, very impressed. It’s nice to see the author creating such interesting characters and an adrenaline laced plot. The fact he’s donating proceeds to a fallen deputy’s family makes this a no-brainer.”--
Contra Costa County Sheriff, David Livingston


“Years ago Chris Swinney and I were young buddies with an addiction to adventure…dreamers spinning huge fish stories believing they could come true. As we became adults, juggling families, mortgages, and careers, the stories lay dormant, but not the dreams. Chris' tales have been revived as this bestselling author weaves amazing tales capturing the reader with their energy and excitement. I can't wait to read his next work.”--
World Renowned Oil Painter, Michael Flohr


“A car chase and gun battle on the opening page draws the reader in like metal shavings to a magnet. C.L.Swinney’s real-life experience as a cop makes the action believable and exciting.
The Cartel Enforcers
, the second book in the Bill Dix Detective series, is a fantastic follow up to
The Caller
. Don’t miss this one!”--
John M. Wills, Award-winning author
The Year Without Christmas.


“This novel has it all! Somehow C. L. Swinney was able to weave a masterful plot, high-speed adrenaline rush scenes, and a bit of romance…he’s a good guy and even better writer.”-
Steve Pangelinan
, Chief of Police, Milpitas Police Department


“In my professional interactions with C.L. Swinney, I have noted his passion for law enforcement and his expertise with investigative techniques. I have also noted his compassion for fellow law enforcement officers and members of the community. All of these traits come through in his writing skills, which have translated into a captivating read. I am proud to show my support for such as an honorable cause in memory of Det. Koti!”--
Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, Chief Frank J. Grgurina




Few men in my life have had as profound effect on me as Koti Fakava. The trouble is I didn’t realize it until he passed away. This novel is a tribute to Koti, who he was, what he meant to so many people, and of course, to his amazing five children and wonderful wife. I didn’t know much about the Mormon Community until after Koti had passed, but I do know it’s expected of those who follow the religion to be strong leaders. Koti far exceeded this. I could write a book about the good deeds he did, but it’d be too difficult for me since every time I write about him, I get emotional. So, I mustered a single chapter including Koti as I remember him. I re-wrote the chapter no less than twenty five times, not because of flow or balance or grammar issues, but because it needed to be Koti speaking one final time. Not for closure, but for new beginnings. This novel is in honor of him and his family, a celebration of a great man. I’m donating proceeds from this novel to his wife and five children. I hope you enjoy this second novel in the Bill Dix Detective Series,
The Cartel Enforcers
, and most importantly, please remember Koti and his family in your Prayers.


'Alu ka he 'ikai ngalo koe. –
C.L. Swinney

I’d like to thank the members of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the Fakava Family for making this novel a reality. To the men and women serving in law enforcement, military, and social services, I salute all of you and will continue supporting your valiant efforts to make the world a safer and better place. To all my friends, family, readers, reviewers, strangers, and anyone else I’ve missed who continue to support my writing; I truly appreciate you and couldn’t have made it this far without you.



To Sherri, Michael, and Andrew
