Bio’s (Fiction) 1992

Bio’s (Not in Publication):

Bio’s was a fictional novel about a military police investigator who upon investigating a homicide in Southern California, stumbles upon a hidden government program from the Vietnam War. The scientific program, first creating bioengineered military working dogs for warfare, progresses to creating a small group of bioengineered soldiers.

Hruby based the book upon seeing the last bioengineered, military working dog, left over from the Vietnam War, kenneled at Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton, California in the early 1980’s. Hruby stated that the dog looked like no other he or others had ever seen. Its eyes were abnormally gray/green in color and it was known by all handlers as the most vicious dog they had ever worked with.

Involving six U.S. States, the investigation finally ends in Louisville, Kentucky. The book is filled with much documented evidence as well as numerous discoveries into the case.

The Last Regulators (Non-Fiction) 2020


Before there was Blackwater Security, there was RIPCO in the 1980’s. A specialized elite security force in San Diego County, tasked with protecting thousands of illegal immigrants living in hidden cities in remote corners of rural San Diego County. Fighting Mexican Border Bandits that crossed the U.S. Border at night to rob and kill Mexican immigrants, RIPCO found itself often alone and fighting illegal alien smugglers, drug and gun smugglers, illegal alcohol sales, brothels, along with homicides, robberies, burglaries, car theft rings, etc., and much more. Working with over five different law enforcement agencies, since Billy-the-Kidd, RIPCO personnel became the last known “Regulators” in U.S. history.
