This is obviously a self-published, self-printed, self-edited book. But it is not bad. Physically, the book is excellent. I took one star away because the editing should have been done more professionally. Not just the misspellings which were irritants more than anything else, but some grammar flaws and some similes and metaphors that went on and on. The first couple of chapters are full of annoying similes that really detract from the story. A professional editor would have toned that down. Also the software that was used to print my copy of the book was terrible. It never right justified, left words dangling into a new sentence, and the sentences were jagged...which does affect the eyes when speed reading like I do. And rebar is not ribar! And using "to try and...do anything" is very poor grammar. Always it should be "to try to...do something."

That said, this book read very fast. Basically two story lines that eventually intersect somewhat. I never felt I knew the James character well enough. What was she...lawyer, consultant, PI...? All were mentioned. Why was she so knowledgeable about guns? Her partner's character was much better developed. The prostitutes and the madam were well-sketched. Unfortunately, the first girl killed in this novel was just ignored throughout the book. I wonder why?

I do recommend this book and I am about to order another by Mr Weems.

Amazingly quick read. Great story that left few loose ends. Slightly predictable but none the less entertaining. Definitely leaves a great opening for a sequel and ongoing character franchise. Highly recommend

This was a good read. The best part was the characters did the unexpected and were not the cliches normally encountered in this kind of story. One reviewer mentioned the bad teenage dialogue at the beginning, but I found it to be a refreshingly accurate portrayal of how teenagers really talk to each other...unfortunate as the reality may be!

There were a few editing errors, but they were clearly typos and not the appallingly bad grammar, vocabulary and misuse of words usually encountered in self published books.

For those that maybe downloaded just the first chapter and didn't like it, give it another try.

I got this book because of how very much I enjoyed The Ghosts of Varner Creek, also by Mr. Weems, & I was not at all disappointed. He is a wonderful storyteller. The book pulled me in & I stayed there through the end. Simply cannot wait for another from this author. Highly recommended.

This is a good tale about Good vs Evil, set in both Mexico and the US, dealing with drug cartels, enslaved prostitutes, and the kidnapping of an American girl on spring break. I was a bit slow to get caught up in this book -- some of the scenes with the college girls on break stumbled a bit for me, but I quickly got caught up in the story line. Not all of the scenes are totally believable -- a little Rambo-ish in my opinion, but this writer has a real gift for writing and storytelling!

This book is filled with neverending action. The story is so gripping I could not put it down. I felt the need for revenge against the horrible characters in this book. It seems to start off with 2 story lines but as the book progresses they merge into one another. Great Author...Fantastic book. Don't miss this one it is one of a kind.

Weems' newest work is a well written, thought out thriller that keeps the reader anxiously turning pages. More importantly Weems tells a tale very timely while the nation convulses about the impact of immigration. Well done!

I found this book to be a tightly-scripted suspenseful thriller. It was at times a bit difficult to read as it vividly shows the underbelly of life and some horrific details of such in and around the presence of a drug cartel and what that proximity does to a person, a family, and a community. The author showed a good ability to develop characters that I cared about and was interested in. All things being said, I would have given this a personal score of 4.5 stars, with the detraction not being due to the author's writing ability but due to my personal tendency to stay away from books that show the darker side of life.
