Shelby Gore knows ALL the South Missouri Secrets: somethings outsiders are NOT supposed to know. Some people in the US Government want her and her friends and family DEAD at any cost. Just one problem, this girl is one hell of a fighter and will NOT go quietly. Her family and friends are not all of this world, though many live and work here and have for thousands of years. Shelby’s parents, Gus and Marcella Gore were warned she would be a handful, before she was adopted in Bogota back on September 28, 1972, her first birthday.
Down in Cedarville, Missouri there are many stories about this beautiful young woman; she is just NOT normal. Shelby is the star of the high school track team for the last three years, first running a four-minute mile when she was in the eighth grade on the high school team. Cedarville needed a winner; this girl was clocked running two miles in only seven minutes back when she was only twelve, without being short of breath.
Why would the top Colombian Drug Cartel send four of their meanest and deadliest enforcers to grab this girl two blocks from her school? Maybe they should have sent ten or twenty, how many ever they send are going home in body-bags. This girl must be very good at the art of self-defense, this is how she has survived this far into her young life. If Ortega had checked this girl out better, he’d have known: You don’t want to Mess with Shelby Gore. When she was only four, she killed Tommy Walters, who was found sitting in his cell on Death Row holding his severed head in his hands, with blood even on the ceiling.
When Shelby was twelve she liked to stop by the town square and talk with the old men who spent their days sitting on park benches, playing checkers. On one of her frequent visits, she learned 12 hoodlums from Mtn. High came by monthly to take their Social Security check money. Even the local Police were too scared to interfere with this crime, these old folks had no money left to buy groceries or anything else. This young girl decided she couldn’t let her friends’ problems continue, first she arranged a few free meals for these destitute people and planned what to do next.
With help from a few friends…
