Publisher's Summary

John Milton has been off the grid for six months. He surfaces in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, and immediately finds himself drawn into a vicious battle with the narco-gangs that control the borderlands. He saves the life of an idealistic young journalist who has been targeted for execution. The only way to keep her safe is to smuggle her into Texas.
Working with the only untouchable cops in the city and a bounty hunter whose motives are unclear, Milton must keep her safe until the crossing can be made. But when the man looking for her is the legendary assassin Santa Muerta - Saint Death - that's a lot easier said than done.
Mark Dawson has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry. His first books, The Art of Falling Apart and Subpoena Colada, have been published in multiple languages.

Character stupidity as a plot propellant

Relying on character stupidity of supposedly smart main characters to move the plot forward is not acceptable. This is the second book in the series. This book is just like the first. The main character does stupid predictable stuff and relies on fortuitous events to get out of a bind he put himself in. I will not give the rest of the series my time. I read about enough stupid human tricks on Facebook; I don't need to buy them too.

Needs more Character Development and Detail

The book feels abridged. There are gaps in the time line, there could and should be more character development, and more detail. And if John Milton is the UK's top agent the UK is in trouble. Missing is all the spy and assassin craft that are in other novels (John Rein, Victor, John Wells, Quinn). There is so much potential and the writing is pretty good, but just not good enough to be a 4 star and a long way to go to get 5 stars. I want to get lost in this book and series but it just isn't complete.
