When engineer Avery is offered a last-minute assignment to the rough and tumble border town of Zapata, Texas, she doesn’t think twice. Instead, she’s thrown in the crossfire between warring drug cartels and soon discovers that her captor, Javier, is more than just a power hungry drug lord. He’s crazy.
As lead attorney for the cartel, it’s Alejandro DeLeon’s job to manage Javier. But this time, Javier’s cruelty reaches epic proportions, and Alejandro finds himself wanting to risk everything to save Avery.
