Harry Hunsicker, novelist and former executive vice-president of the Mystery Writers of America, returns with his fourth novel, about a disgraced ex-cop turned private military contractor patrolling one of the busiest drug-hubs in the country: Dallas, Texas. This heart-stopping thriller takes readers deep into a strange underworld where the lines between government officials and mercenaries blur.
Private military contractors. They're not just for foreign wars anymore. Jon Cantrell, a disgraced ex-cop, works for one such company. He's a DEA agent paid on a commission basis, patrolling one of the busiest drug-hubs in the country: Dallas, Texas. When Cantrell confiscates the wrong shipment of drugs, he finds himself in possession of a star witness in a cartel trial that could destroy the largest criminal organization in the hemisphere. To turn a profit, all he has to do is deliver the witness to the US Attorney in a tiny town called Marfa on the other side of the state. An easy trip, except a group of competing DEA contractors and a corrupt Dallas cop want everybody involved dead. This heart-stopping thriller takes readers deep into a strange underworld where the lines between government officials and mercenaries blur. In this complex network of drug traffickers, cartels, politicians, and police, no one's hands are clean.
Harry Hunsicker lives in Dallas, the fourth generation of his family to call the city home. When he's not penning the next Lee Henry Oswald mystery, he works as a commercial real estate appraiser and speaks on creative writing.
