Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Ninety percent of the guns in Mexico come from the U.S., a staggering statistic that inspired Parker’s third top-notch thriller to feature Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff Charlie Hood. As part of Operation Blowdown, Deputy Hood must fearlessly navigate Iron River, the gun-trafficking corridor that straddles the Mexican-American border between San Diego, California, and Corpus Christi, Texas. Every moment of the endeavor is suffused with risk, and it’s not long before one of Charlie’s team—young family man Jimmy Holdstock—is kidnapped and tortured. As he negotiates Jimmy’s release, Hood plumbs the deadly depths of the contraband weapons business, suspecting all the while that a late friend’s son is intimately involved. He also becomes entangled in the web of Mike Finnegan, a car-accident victim who is privy to a disturbing amount of classified information. Three-time Edgar winner Parker’s breathtakingly vivid novels are the product of copious research. This time around, he was astonished to learn how easily 50,000 rounds of ammunition could be procured. (A handful of phone calls got them drop-shipped to his home.) “There is always revolution in the hearts of men,” the leader of a group of feral Mexican soldiers tells Hood, “and now those men have guns to match their hearts.” With crisp prose and chilling detail, Parker brings a brutal, bullet-riddled world to light. --Allison Block --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
