A great read written from experience as previously stated. However, the twists and contrasts in this novel will easily keep your mind entertained as well. I went from a "No Country for Old Men" vibe to "Manhuter" (1986... my first introduction to the first Hannibal Lecter sagas) within two chapters!
Characters could have only come from someone who has trudged the turf.
A very visual read.
John Quick and his partner Randall Ishtee are detectives in Florida. When they find a trailer filled with dead illegals, they start tracing where they came from ... landing in Texas where they meet Hunter Kincaid, the only female Border Agent.
Drug trafficking, human trafficking is running rampant ... Border Agents cannot be everywhere all at once, but Hunter has a good idea who is behind all the crime. This book is all about the chase.
John Quick is a dangerous man. He's lost his wife and infant son in the most gruesome way possible. It eats at him day and night. He's sleeping too little and drinking too much. His partner worries about him, but John is a man possessed. When he metes out his brand of justice, he is not proud and it doesn't bring his loved ones back, but it is what it is.
Randall Ishtee is of American Indian heritage. He and Quick grew up together .. he on the reservation, Quick on the outskirts. He has a terrific sense of humor and a great sense of loyalty to his friend and partner.
Hunter Kincaid is a woman who absolutely loves her job ... but feels the frustration of not being able to stop a particular drug cartel who places no value on human life.
This book is so chillingly realistic .. gritty and downright dirty ... some of the atrocities are so gut-wrenching that I had to take short breaks to convince myself I was reading fiction.
If you have a strong stomach, I highly recommend this book. This is the first in a series .... if you get through the first one, then I think you will enjoy the other adventures of Hunter Kincaid.
I would have given this book 5 stars except for the grammatical errors (quite a few, actually). "Less than" instead of the correct "fewer than"; "drug" instead of more correctly "dragged"; "that" instead of "who"; "hung" instead of "hanged; "Calvary" instead of "cavalry"; and the word "officer" instead of "office".
There were also a lot of missed quotation marks, sometimes making it difficult to read.
I do have to caution people who have queasy stomachs when reading about torture, etc. There is some of that in this book; and although it's not overly descriptive (going on and on and on), it's still quite upsetting. Expect some vulgar language, too (not an excessive amount, but it's there).
I'm on the fence as to how I feel about John and what he did out of revenge. Not sure I like the guy.
All-in-all a good page-turner!
Furthermore, I would thoroughly enjoy seeing this as a mini series or big budget feature. The descriptions of landscapes, and cities behind the characters seemed so real.Just a few pages into the story I was hooked, and transported into the story.
I highly recommend buying the book, and continuing the saga as I intend to.Worth more than a couple of reads! Keep a tab on this author, he's got the right stuff!
