Following his graduation from Florida State University, Pike brother, Wilson Carter III, moved to Barranquilla, Colombia and volunteered as an English professor. One day, while exploring the beaches of Colombia, he, by chance, befriended Marco, a former Drug transporter for the A.U.C, a Narco Para-military organization. Marco’s story was so awe inspiring that Wilson, with Marco’s permission, recorded, translated, wrote and published a novel titled Pinched.
Pinched, is a gripping thriller that tells the electrifying true story of Marco, a poor adolescent Colombian fisherman whose ambitions and dreams of wealth result in his forced servitude to the A.U.C, a ruthlessly violent para-military organization operating at the height of Colombia’s war torn, drug-fueled civil war.
The adventure thrusts the reader into the mind and soul of Marco, who’s charged with the dangerous responsibility of moving millions of dollars in cash and thousands of kilos worth of cocaine through the treacherous jungles of Central and South America and the Gulf of Mexico’s unforgiving waters.
Throughout the journey Marco must endure and survive bitter betrayal, unrelenting greed, forbidden romance, and adrenaline fueled battles bursting with bloody violence, all while maintaining the essential wisdom of remaining true to yourself and above all, following your heart. Wilson Carter’s suspenseful novel promises to keep readers intrigued from cover to cover.
It’s always great to see students graduate an immediately get out there and start chasing their dreams, Shoutout to Wilson!
