Pushing to Pull? Pulling to Drag?: Raymond Dekker
One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. What Do You Care What Other People Think? is Feynman´s last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among the book´s many tales we meet Feynman´s first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love´s irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger´s explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster´s cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen. 1.

However, she and Raymond find more than they bargained for as they learn that he´s working for someone else. Worst of all, it´s a vampire. To expose the mastermind pulling the strings of both vampires and psychics, Kara has to ask for help from Vasha, the vampire gangster, again.

In book two, the stage is set for more shooting over crawfish. The killing sickens Becky and Roland, so they leave crawfishing behind and head north to Martha´s Vineyard. Sword-fishing is appealing to Roland, but not the winter weather. The following year, they´re back in Florida on their own offshore crawfish boat. Raymond James teams with them in his own offshore boat, and together they set 3,000 traps near Walker´s Cay, Bahamas. Local natives soon arrive in skiffs to make some easy money by pulling the two men´s traps. Roland Cameron and Lester Mutt deliver a message by mail to the natives from their airplane. The chainmail convinces the locals that there´s not going to be any easy money available. Two years of good trapping are followed by two years of machinegun fire, as the two fishermen use their ´´bolt-of-lightning´´ patrol boat and airplane to convince thieves from the Miami River to stay away. A thief, his crew, and the boat vanish. The thieves return to Miami, but the Bahamian government wants no more shooting near the world famous blue marlin fishing resort on Walker´s Cay, and force the two fishermen from their waters. Roland and Becky use their plane to search Florida for a place to simply be left alone to fish for a living. The small fishing village, nestled among the Everglades on the edge of the Ten Thousand Islands, could have been the answer to their long sought after dream. Ray, Roland, and the crew members arrive in their boats to begin establishing their stone crab trapping business. It seemed too good to be true, which made Becky recall an old saying - and it was. Everglade´s City was not only the hub of American stone crab production; it was also the marijuana import capitol of the south. Events were about to begin that would forever change lives. 1.
