A high powered Washington attorney learns there are some problems he can't solve in court. Dan Balor buys an apartment building in the heart of the city, hoping to create low income housing for good families. Instead he finds the building occupied by squatters: drug dealers, winos, hookers and professional criminals intent on staying in place.Police and private investigators are unable to empty the building for use by paying residents. No one seems willing or able to take on this challenge until Balor meets an intense young man dressed in black named Hannibal Jones. He calls himself a troubleshooter, but he finds more trouble in Southeast Washington than he expected. The people holding crack pipes are backed up by people holding guns, and Hannibal soon finds himself up against a local crime boss and his powerful, mob connected father. To even the odds, Hannibal recruits a motley collection of underdogs, homeless men who have nothing to fight for until Hannibal pulls them together into a team. With the support of the local residents, they replace the crack house residents and shore the building up against criminal invaders.Too late they find that the criminals are not quitters. The conflict spreads until Hannibal realizes that his stand against the mob could explode into a full-fledged riot unless he can somehow end it all, without surrendering the building and the neighborhood to the criminals.Camacho, Austin S. is the author of 'Troubleshooter', published 2004 under ISBN 9780976218128 and ISBN 0976218127.
