The vicious Mexican cartel war boils over into the Big
Bend in the explosive new novel from the author of The
Far Empty and High White Sun.
In the Mexican borderlands, a busload of student protesters
is gunned down in broad daylight, a violent act blamed on
the Nemesio cartel. But its aging leader, Fox Uno, sees the
attack for what it is: another salvo in the long-running
battle for control of Nemesio itself; perhaps by a rival
cartel, or maybe someone closer to homeâ€¦
Across the Rio Grande, Sheriff Chris Cherry and his deputies
America Reynosa and Danny Ford find themselves caught in Fox
Unoâ€™s escalating war with the recent discovery of five dead
men at the riverâ€™s edge. But when El Paso DEA agent Joe
Garrisonâ€™s own Nemesio investigation leads him into the
heart of the Big Bend, heâ€™s not ready to accept the cartel
leaderâ€™s retreat or defeat. Not only does he suspect a
high-profile drug task force in a neighboring county is
corrupt, he canâ€™t shake lingering doubts about the loyalty
and motives of the young deputy, Ame Reynosa. And he wonâ€™t
let Sheriff Cherry ignore them either.
In this pitiless land itâ€™s kill or be killed, where everyone
will make one final bloody stand to decide the fate of
Nemesio, the law in the Big Bend, and most of all, the
future of America Reynosa.
