This book had a great plot and was well written. Would make a good movie thriller and filmed in Florence- what could be better.

Want to know what is really going on at the border? Cartels, drug smuggling, open borders, corruption- it is all in this book. If nothing changes we will continue to lose 100,000 people a year to Fentanyl and the cartels will take over the border and finance corruption. Well-written page turner.

I loved Border Justus. It has everything readers will enjoy, from action packed adventure, to political intrigue that the author skillfully weaves from today’s real life headlines. Retired Texas Ranger, Wade Justus, is called upon yet again to save the day, as he and his friends take on the Mexican transnational drug cartels who are wreaking such havoc and destruction in America today. Looking forward to the next Wade Justus book, as heroism never gets old.

Third in a series, Border Justus has it all: Corruption, graft, drug smuggling, and murder, along with honor, loyalty, and a sense of duty. As the pace quickens, it is a page burner as law enforcement officers battle the Cartels in a seemingly unwinnable war. Look for this series to be a movie soon.

Texas author Ron Martinelli, PhD has served in a highly regard career as a police officer, investigator, director of Criminal Justice Training Center, educator, leader of the Forensic Death Investigations Team, and continues this Texas Ranger Wade Justus Series with BORDER JUSTUS. He is highly qualified to write about the Border problems along the Texas and New Mexico borders with Mexico, and brings the realities into focus of immigration, crime, drug cartels and other clashes so present in the media today. He invites understanding between law enforcement and criminal elements by creating his fine lead character, Texas Ranger Wade Justus, to investigate the kidnapping of a colleague’s deputy sheriff son by the drug cartel and in doing so he creates a polished story full of credible characters. The pace of the story is bullet-fast and once again the author proves his merit as a skillful craftsman. Very contemporary in impact!

Wade Justus is a retired Texas Ranger and is looking forward to a quiet life on his ranch in the Texas Hill Country. He is thwarted however by a phone call from his partner asking his assistance with a kidnapping case that involves a dangerous drug cartel. This book is third in a series, and the action is thrilling, and there is a lot of vicious villains to fight against. Wade is a great Main character, he is fleshed out, nuanced, and intelligent enough to solve the issues. This is my first book by this author but I was very impressed by this book, and while it is very long, it was also very engaging which made for a pleasant read.

D.B Retired Police Detective, CA

Author Ron Martinelli, America’s new “Joe Wambaugh” of law enforcement mystery action thrillers, has hit it out of the park with his newest novel on the Wade Justus Texas Ranger series, “Border Justus.” This is Ron’s newest novel about retired Texas Ranger Wade Justus and so far his best one yet as he cleverly takes you into the “belly of the beast” of Mexican transnational drug and human smuggling cartels. The accuracy and realism of Ron’s fictional storylines speaks columns about Ron’s decades of experience as a retired police detective and now a well known forensic criminologist. This accurate portrayal of the deadly cartels woven into a believable fictional story involving Wade and a whole host of new and intriguing support characters is so exciting and action-packed that I couldn’t put it down. Kudos, Ron. I’m ready for my next Wade Justus ride!

This was an exciting read with an authentic look at homicide investigations. The story is about a sophisticated serial killer targeting women in Nashville TN. Hunter Justus TN state criminal investigator is involved in the case and at some point consult’s with his father a retired Texas Ranger with a stellar reputation for solving complicated cases. Together they work on the case. I enjoyed the book and couldn’t put it down until I finished it. It was a stay up late night type of read. I thoroughly recommend this book. I immediately purchased his other two books in the “Justus Wade series. “Justice for all” and “Border Justice”. Each of the books followed a different story line and yet were connected to each other. All were great reads, very entertaining with satisfying outcomes in the arena of international terrorisms and Southerner border “NARCO Terrorisms”. These books illustrate the issues we face in the world today.

The difference between this book and most others in the genre is that the author tells the story as somebody who has spent a career in law enforcement starting on patrol, then in the vice unit, and later as a criminologist specializing in “use of force” cases involving police officers. I know this because Martinelli was the inspiration for my book UNDER COVER, published by Simon & Schuster/Pocketbooks long ago (and now out of print). Martinelli’s adventures on the Street Crimes unit were full of surprises, bloodshed, cop humor, and lessons learned. Since his time in the
