A Five-Star Review by Readers’ Favorite!
Across The Border by Scott Schuff and Jim Bullard opens with a shocking scene that indicates what you are about to read in this gripping action crime novel. Two young couples died from ingesting heroin and were found by a homeless man who robbed them of their belongings. This becomes symptomatic of a larger concern as former Navy SEAL and CIA covert operative Jason Maines, while deer hunting, witnesses a Sicario murder two men as cartels fight one another to monopolize the best smuggling routes in the U.S. The Sinaloa-Durango Cartel’s tentacles have extended into the higher echelons of American government and law enforcement. Maines has been given the task to assemble a covert DEA team with a single imperative: crush the SDC. In doing so, he must unlearn his military orientation as he discovers that the SDC couldn’t care less about codes of honor.
Part of Scott Schuff and Jim Bullard’s impressive story is the development of its protagonist. Jason is an observer and a well informed leader on this journey. He is clearly in charge of what’s happening and you get a sense of a well-organized operation. Across The Border, at its core, is about a world in which the execution of strategies and logistics determines victory against the drug war. It makes sense that it features a well-trained protagonist, but doesn’t necessarily mean that it is going to be easy for him. This makes for a novel with enough emotional punch to pass as a high-octane action thriller in which you will find a satisfying final act. Across The Border meets expectations when it comes to narrating about a world infested by criminals and what could be done to trim their numbers.
Through a riveting narrative, this book clamors what every American should know
Compelling story. Written as a riveting narrative, this book provides deep insight into the war on drugs. The first chapter vividly details how a couple of rich kids get drugs and then overdose, clearly portraying the importance of this war. The focus of the book is on the inner workings of a large drug cartel and the calculated steps the DEA takes to take them down. Storyline and story details are vivid and feel authentic.
Across the Border
It takes about 8 hours to read. I know because I just did it. Couldn’t put it down and it worked out because the weather in Oklahoma kept me from going to work. Where’s the next book?
