Justin (justinbienvenue) | 453 comments Hey Everyone,
I will soon be releasing my newest novel, Opium Warfare. It is a Crime/Psychological Thriller and it is my first novel within the genre. It is quite a change for me and it was quite the experience in writing it. Below is a excerpt from the book as well as other places where you can find out more on the book.

If your interested in reading and reviewing a copy before it's release next month please let me know and I will gladly send you a copy.

Chapter 1- Reminiscence

As a boy I remember my father telling me a bedtime story about the day my grandfather got decapitated. Sure it seems an odd tale to tell a young boy but I was strong and my father knew I could handle it. He told me because he wanted me to know about our family, where we came from, the struggles we overcame and that started with my grandfather, who was in the fur trade like his father. Business boomed but only because he made a deal with another man to help him with the money. When business got bad the money decreased and when my grandfather couldn’t pay his debt, he couldn’t pay the man back and it was in that moment that things changed forever. My father always said he knew not of the details of what happened entirely but knew my grandfather got his head taken off because he could not pay the man back. He also told me there was a myth behind the cruel act but swore to tell me when I got older; he never did. I always suspected it being something along the lines of grandfather’s head rolling down the top of a hill of the opium fields where he was killed, I always liked to mix my imagination along with the rumors.
