Nick Woods is tired of waiting. America's greatest sniper has spent the better part of two years up in the mountains of Montana, waiting for the government to double-cross him and try to come get him. He has good reason to be wary. The government has betrayed him twice already, but Nick's a hard man to kill. And just waiting in isolation, with his wife Anne gone and his paranoia at dangerous levels, is killing him day by day.
And so Nick ventures out. Carefully, like Nick does everything. But what Nick doesn't know is that the Mexican government stands on the verge of complete collapse. A brilliant madman has united the drug cartels into a deadly alliance, and the Mexican president holds a perilous grip on power. Now, Mexico's leading businessman - a multibillionaire who owns much of the country - is about to exit the country, selling off his businesses and taking his capital out of the country. Such a move would lead to an exodus of other businesses, and just like that America would face one of its largest catastrophes in recent times: a third world country on its borders, run by a drug cartel whose reach spans from South America into deep within the United States.
America has already sent special forces to deal with this cartel, but that proved a catastrophe. The country needs Nick Woods again, and it needs him now.

OMG - Mitchell goes from strength to strength here
Stan R Mitchell is a top author who will thoroughly entertain you and draw you into a detailed world with Mexican Heat!
This story builds upon the last book without making it required reading. You can just as easily dive into this book without reading the first. The pacing is fast. I enjoyed listening to an action movie in my mind.
Mitchell has really found his stride in Mexican Heat. The characters, not just the lead but the ancillary ones as well, are detailed and have enough depth that you are interested in them and can actually see them as real folks.
Mitchell has a skill that I rarely see in modern action fiction. He successfully balances an effectively paced story with enough detail and background that you don't feel spoon fed but also don't feel like you missed a page somewhere.
His development of Nick in this book is superb. I'm hooked and you will be too.
As I've said in a review of book one in this series, if you enjoy Mark Greaney, especially the Gray Man series - you'll LOVE this series. Give it a try!
Nick Woods, but let's not forget our ninja either...
Jay never fails to embrace a story and bring it to life with effective dialog voicing and solid vocal rendering. His involvement in this series is a real coup.
Not that I can reveal here without spoiling the story for others.
BUY THIS BOOK! You will not regret it.
