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.
