Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* DEA agent John Marquez is principled but often conflicted, tough but committed to his job. So when a meeting with one of Mexico’s biggest drug dealers, the Salazar Cartel, ends in disaster, John is devastated. He knows the Salazars aren’t the ones to blame—the mysterious Emrahain Stoval was behind the fiasco. John wants revenge, but before he can start his search for Stoval, his bosses at the DEA threaten to fire him because of “renegade” behavior. Before that happens, John resigns. At loose ends, he signs on with the Special Operations Unit of the California Department of Fish and Game. Nearly 20 years later, he finds himself in yet another nightmarish disaster that centers around Stoval and opens up all the old wounds and memories from decades ago. Offered the chance to go after Stoval, John doesn’t think twice. Readers looking for a superbly crafted, cleverly plotted, highly suspenseful thriller with a larger-than-life hero need look no further than Redback—or, indeed, the entire John Marquez series. Outstanding! --Emily Melton

Outstanding! --Booklist Starred Review, 1st December 2010

At the start of Russell's thrilling fourth John Marquez novel (after Deadgame), DEA special agent Marquez and an informant, Billy Takado, meet brothers Luis and Miguel Salazar, members of "the most violent cartel in Mexico," in a Baja California bull ring as part of an undercover drug operation. When Miguel executes Takado as a warning, Marquez takes the blame and is forced to leave the DEA. Two decades later, as an agent for the California Department of Fish and Game, Marquez discovers that wealthy poacher Emrahain Stoval was the ruthless criminal behind Takado's murder and is now the target of a special FBI task force. Even though the choice jeopardizes his family and stirs dark memories, Marquez becomes a temporary FBI agent to pursue the cunning predator. Meanwhile, he realizes that someone he knows and trusts must be leaking information to Stoval. The tension rises as the unpredictable plot skitters and jitters along, powered by smoothly understated prose. --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, December 6, 2010
