The drug wars have left 160,000 dead in the past six years. But the war is no closer to an end. Each time the Mexican police make some headway, the cartels gain more sophisticated arms and tactics. While the federales vastly outnumber them, the cartels seem to anticipate their every move.
Into that maelstrom walks Paul Decker and his new family. Paul has retired from the CIA and desires no more than to raise his family, regain his peace of mind, and fulfill the promises he has made to Lydia and the children…promises he failed to complete with his first family.
But all that comes to a violent end on the streets of Ciudad Juarez.
Paul goes after the killers, however, what he learns makes his revenge seem small and personal in perspective. The Cartels are being armed and provided intelligence by the ATF and DEA who desire to foment violence in order to build their organizations and become indispensable. The U.S. Administration is seeking to use the violence as an excuse to pass gun legislation in the U.S. and will go even further – declaring Mexico a failed state and take over the country.
Even with all his training, Paul is no match for the cartels. So he teams up with Gabriella – a brave female Mexican Federale – and an elite team of mercenaries, veterans of the Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libyan campaigns. Together, they are intent on taking down the cartels, restoring the rule of law to Mexico and bringing peace to the country.
The war on drugs is really a war to maintain the drug trade…even if the cost is another one hundred thousand lives.
As Paul and his team close in on the rogue forces in the U.S. government and the cartels, the groups aligned against them grow stronger and more determined.
