Chapter I

Rodney Alexander Nobles has created a reluctant hero in Max Cordell. After Max was betrayed and ruined by those closest to him, all he sought was solitude and serenity as he traveled around the country with his motorcycle and RV. But wherever he went, he couldn’t escape trouble and people in need. And though his heart was broken, it was his heart that kept him from walking away. Follow the trials, tribulations, triumphs, and transformations of a tragic hero in one of the best fantasy book series available.


The Drifter: Book I – The Beginning

Max Cordell had it all…a very lucrative career, two successful karate schools, and a beautiful wife and baby boy. Not bad for a kid who grew up in the ghetto! Max never forgot his roots. He spent his life helping others—especially those from his old neighborhood. Life was good until he was falsely accused of a heinous crime, thrown into prison. Max lost everything, but the one thing they couldn’t take was his soul. By the time Max was exonerated, he had lost all faith in humanity. Scarred for life, Max left the city he loved and became “The Drifter.”

The Drifter II: “Dark Angel”

Max’s journey brings him to Scranton PA, where the weary drifter pauses for a much-needed break from the open road. Max encounters a mob hitman and is compelled to make him a promise. His vow pits him against the biggest mob boss in Scranton. Meanwhile, a young boy named Eli captures his attention, and Eli’s beautiful sensual mother threatens to capture his heart. Torn, Max must decide between walking away from Eli and his mother or helping them out of the mess they’re in. Max’s skills are tested when an army of adversaries come to collect the bounty placed on his head. Follow Max Cordell as he drifts into more butt-kicking action, drama, humor, and romance.
