Welcome to Shadow of a Mercenary, a Docu-Podcast presentation, created & hosted, by Kevin E. West. Shadow of a Mercenary chronicles the dramatic true story that chronicles the life of Verlin Siefkes: a simple crop dusting adopted Kansas farm kid of the 40s/50s who served his country as a Marine, loved painting his daughter's toenails on the porch and survived 28 days of captivity by Escobar's Medellin cartel. Verlin is betrayed by family, screwed over by crooked bankers during the late 70s - 80s and finds himself trapped between providing for his family and the U.S. government. Very often in life, it can be the most simple decision, that is the most fateful. Ultimately, Verlin is forced to become a double-agent by the DEA and eventually both shunned and dismissed, by the very government he served to protect in the Marines. Then again, it’s easy to be betrayed, when no one knows you exist.”

EPISODE 4:
Verlin shows how you can have the American dream by working hard and becoming an expert in his field but ya know, then there is thing called, family. How does that show itself when you’re really the ‘adopted’ outcast and you try working with your irresponsible brother as we get into the mid-70s, you lose your Father figure and no one will assist. Mix in a few colorful crop-dusting friends, a new charter client (the devil incarnate) and insert crooked bankers and oh my the wheels can come off quickly.

NOTE: This presentation contains occasional language inappropriate for a younger audience. Additionally, due to COVID, there is a variation of sound level sources. No need to adjust your sound as the occasional fluctuation is not related to your equipment!

SUBSCRIBE / SHARE: Verlin's story, Shadow of a Mercenary, is going to make one hell of a Feature Film with sequels and/or a tremendous limited Series.
