Book Trilogy by Border Patrol Agent Gets Published After His Death, Thanks to His Mother

Delta Tango Trilogy by Christopher LaGrone

By Steve Neavling

Christopher LaGrone left behind his life’s work when he died of altitude sickness while on vacation in Peru in 2018. 

The former Border Patrol agent had written there fictional books, called the “Delta Tango Trilogy,” inspired by his time with the agency in Southern Arizona. 

His mother Sherryl LaGrone set out to get the books published. 

“It was Chris’ dream to be a published author,’’ his mother told Tucson.com. “I was overjoyed that Denny volunteered to finish writing the third book. I had complete faith in him; he knew where Chris was going with the story. He said ‘I won’t do it justice, but I’ll do the best I can.’ Well, he did it justice and then some.’’

Denny Dressman, a Denver newspaper editor, finished the third book as LaGrone searched for a publisher. 

“It was so heartbreaking; Chris had all but finished the third book,’’ LaGrone said. “But once we got over the shock, after we held a memorial service, I was determined to do everything I could to finish Chris’ project and get the books published.’’

She found a publisher – the New York City firm, Morgan, James Publishing. The firm published all three books – “Fleeing the Past,” “Felina’s Spell’’ and “Moments of Truth.’’

LaGrone will talk about her son’s books at the Tucson Festival of Books on Sunday.

The president and CEO of the U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith, Ark., resigned from his position last week after he was charged with pointing a gun at two construction workers. 

Patrick Weeks is accused of pointing a pistol at the two workers in December after refusing to let them on his property to repair a street light, KUAR-FM 89.1 reports.

The museum will soon launch a nationwide search to replace Weeks, who had worked as president and CEO since June 2014. 

“We are most grateful to Patrick for his valuable contributions to the museum project. He oversaw the construction of the museum building and worked with Thinkwell Group to design all of the museum experiences which will soon be under construction,” Museum Board Chairman Doug Babb said in a press release. 

Weeks was charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. Weeks, who had been on administrative leave since Dec. 23, has pleaded not guilty.
