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.

good series: bad guy trying to do good

I am enjoying this character and the stories. It does seem that in each book, the super killer, Number One, does something really stupid. He did it again in this book, not dally with a vulnerable woman this time, but let himself get jumped by the bad guys.

Nevertheless, the characters are realistic, the fights are believable and exciting, and our hero struggles to stay true to his tea-totaling, restitution-making goals since he doesn't want to kill for hire or politics anymore. Now his own government wants him "retired" and the Russians want him hired, so he has to keep running from everyone. At least he has made 2 new friends, and an old colleague has remained a true friend.

This one is not as good as the first one-- I am extremely glad the one good guy on the brink did not die, and there weren't any moments I cried or mourned, but it's okay and I will read another.
