Sugar Alpha: The Life and Times of Senor Huevos Grandes

Read the true story started by skydiving legend Roger Nelson and finished by his daughter, skydiver Melissa Nelson! It's a page you won't be able to put down until the last page.

Skydiving and drug smuggling pioneer Roger Nelson lives life out of the box. Fueled by a love for adrenaline and adventure, Roger goes after everything he wants with gusto. But now Roger is ready to retire from smuggling. With a parachute center to run and a family to raise, Roger knows it is time to stop the cat-and-mouse games he has been playing with the authorities for years.

He and his longtime partner, Hanoi, plan one final run to Belize, where they intend to fill their Douglas DC-3 with enough cannabis to set them up for life. But then Hanoi dies in a plane crash in an attempt to make some "legitimate bucks" flying fish in Alaska while they wait for the growing season to end.

Left without a partner or plane, Roger remains determined to return to his family for good. To do so, he decides to stay true to himself and follow through with his retirement run. Roger must rely on a colorful cast of characters and the most unlikely airplane for a gig ever-Sugar Alpha, the legendary DC-3 with the secret fuel tanks and not-so-secret paint job-to help him complete the most daring run in the history of smuggling.

Charlie Bravo: Descent into Darkness and Danger

Roger Nelson retired from drug smuggling after the audacious and perfectly executed scam recounted in Sugar Alpha, the first part of The Sugar Alpha Chronicles.

He was set financially and ready to focus on his family, and on building the best parachute center in the world. But while Roger extracted promises from the rest of his smuggling crew to retire with him, their pledges disintegrated in the deluge of cocaine cash that made reefer profits look like chump change. Several were promptly busted, exposing Roger to legal liability for his past activities that forced him to make deals with DEA and drug smugglers alike to avoid a long prison sentence.

That is the world of Charlie Bravo, the second part of Roger and Melissa Nelson's Sugar Alpha Chronicles. Sugar Alpha, the first part of the Chronicles, was a rollicking adventure tale about skydiving, reefer smuggling, loyalty and brotherhood - and pushing the limits in a dozen different ways.

Charlie Bravo is a different animal. It is the story of Roger's descent into darkness and danger and despair, where loyalty and brotherhood give way to betrayal and treachery, where political corruption and piles of Franklins poison every moment - and where Roger's renowned self confidence and ability to solve any problem are pushed beyond even his limits. At the same time, Roger relies on skydiving to keep himself sane and, in the process, reaches new heights of innovation and accomplishment as the Sugar Alpha Chronicles reach their dramatic conclusion in Charlie Bravo.
