Senior Detective Gloria Ramos is a tough Texas gal, but as we learn, everybody has a “breaking point.” This story starts with a bang (literally), and there is action and suspense on almost every page. Ramos and her partners battle the drug cartel on the border which leads them into a Mexican “war zone.” It’s an adrenaline-pumping thrill ride full of surprises right to end. But there’s much more, beneath the tough exterior, Gloria Ramos is deeply compassionate and forms a sincere bond with a 14-year-old troubled youth caught up in the mayhem. The reader comes to root as much for Enrique to reform as for Gloria to “survive and cope” in this compelling drama.
