Publisher Description

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE CARTEL.

When Tim Kearney, a small-time criminal, slits the throat of a Hell's Angel and draws a life sentence in a prison full of gang members, he knows he’s pretty much a dead man. That’s until the DEA makes Kearney an offer: impersonate the late, legendary dope smuggler Bobby Z so that the agency can trade him for one of their own, who was captured by a Mexican drug kingpin. Knowing his chances of survival are a little better than in prison, Kearney accepts, and he winds up in the middle of a desert at the notorious drug lord’s lavish compound. To his surprise he meets Bobby Z's old flame, Elizabeth, and her son. At first, it’s a short vacation by the pool, but when things turn bloody, the three of them begin the most desperate flight of their lives, with drug lords, bikers, Indians, and cops furiously chasing after them. Whether he pulls it off, whether he can keep the kid and the girl and his life, makes this compelling novel a hilarious, fast-paced thriller about a con caught in a devil’s bargain.

Sometimes its fun to have fun

I read this book years ago and was pleasantly surprised that it has stuck with me, they even made a movie out of it. It reads very quickly and I remember how I had a hard time putting it down. Truth be told, I only bought it because the cover of the paperback caught my attention. Treat yourself to a treat and read this book.

Unrecognized Gem

Truly excellent. Both exciting and funny. Moves along very quickly with many twists, turns and surprises. Fun and very entertaining light reading. Fascintating characters, interesting plot. Many similarities in style to Savages. Everyone who I've turned on to this book has really enjoyed it.

Good

Different than other Don Wilson books. Filled with fast-paced humor with suspenseful twists. Great finish in classic Wilson style, where all worlds collide. However, does not reach the height of The Cartel.
