A BUMBLING SMALL-TOWN LAWYER MUDDLES HIS WAY TOWARD SOLVING A BIGTIME DRUG CRIME
BUMBLING SMALL-TOWN SOUTHERN LAWYER HAMISH O'HALLORAN, WHOSE SHIP HAS LONG SINCE SAILED, MUDDLES HIS WAY THROUGH ONE CLOSE CALL AFTER ANOTHER TO SOLVE A BIG TIME DRUG CRIME.

'David Tanis knows...every last molecule of a court room...vintage small town hijinks at its best.'-Joseph Bathanti, Poet Laureate of NC, Prof of English, Appalachian State Univ.

The cozy village of Pine Ridge, North Carolina is beset by an epidemic of the dangerous new drug Murti-Bing which renders its users automatons. After being ostracized from Federal Court for twenty years, Hamish O'Halloran, a sad sack lawyer, is appointed to represent a 'notorious drug dealer.' Thus begins his sordid involvement in a conspiracy involving numerous oddball characters. An inept investigator, he finds himself in dire straits, as his suspicions bounce from one potential conspirator to another.

'... brings vividly to life the small North Carolina town and the characters...'-Joseph L.S. Terrell, author of Not Our Kind of Killing, and other Harrison Weaver mysteries

'...completely unpredictable ending...compelling, and fun read...'-Henry ('Hank') P. Van Hoy, II, Martin & Van Hoy, LLP, Attorneys at Law, Mocksville, NC. '...characters right out of a gritty small town Southern court room...a fun read...'-Tom Keith, Forsyth County N.C. District Attorney, Retired.

After service with the U.S. Army’s Green Berets, Tanis was a company commander in combat in Viet Nam when his career in the military was brought to an abrupt end by a North Viet Namese mortar round landing next to his right foot, amputating his legs. Thereafter, he attended graduate school to try to compensate for a poor academic record, a consequence of the distraction of a basketball scholarship at Lehigh University. Graduating from Wake Forest University Law School, he began his career by prosecuting criminal cases, followed by thirty years as a trial lawyer, with a stint as District Court Judge. District Court was a fertile field for many of the humorous anecdotes he includes in his novels. Writing, then, is his third career.
Trying dozens of narcotics cases in the State and Federal Courts in North Carolina during his thirty year career, Tanis saw the seedy side of the drug underworld first hand, along with the devastating effect on everyone involved in these conspiracies, the dealers, the users, the mules and everyone else on the periphery, and their families.
He has served as Chairman of the North Carolina Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program appointed by President Reagan, the Governor’s Advocacy Council for Person’s with Disabilities, appointed by Governor James Martin, co-founder of the Triad Viet Nam Veterans and has served on various community boards, and church councils.
A member of the North Carolina Writers Network and Hampton Roads Writers, he won a short story contest put on by the North Carolina State Bar, published in their Journal. JUST ADD WATER is his first published novel.
 He is married to Stefanie Weidinger, a retired Instructor in the Department of German and Russian at Wake Forest University, has two adult children, and resides on North Carolina’s northern Outer Banks.
