This time around, Hood is running the California-Mexico
border with the ATF, searching for the iron river â€“ the
massive and illegal flow of handguns and automatic weapons
that fuels the bloody cartel wars south of the border.
Gunrunners by nature arenâ€™t exactly ethical, but the lengths
theyâ€™ll go to, and the innocent lives theyâ€™ll risk, are
shocking even to Hood. Most shocking of all is the close
personal connection Hood finds wrapped up in events south of
the border â€“ a connection that shakes him to his core.
