As Mexico’s govt wages conflict at the drug cartels, it takes brains to outlive, and Cuchillo has not only survived—he has prospered. but if Cuchillo starts off to chop too deeply, the federal police of either the USA and Mexico step in to bland his blade.
P. Z. Evans and Alejo Díaz understand the Hermosillo cartel is making plans an assault on a vacationer bus in Sonora, and so they recognize they are going to need to catch or kill Cuchillo to forestall it. The cartel chief has one weak spot: infrequent, previous books. To wreck the intellectual’s evil empire, this not going pair of foreign police must attract his internal bibliophile.
