Triple Crossing: A Novel [Audiobook]
2011 | ISBN: 1441793674 | MP3@40 kbps | 12 hrs 17 mins | 211.1 MB
A gritty, fast-paced thriller about the criminal underworld at work along both sides of the US-Mexico border and a young cop who goes undercover to bring it down.
Valentine Pescatore, a volatile rookie Border Patrol agent, is trying to survive the trenches of the Line in San Diego. He gets in trouble and finds himself recruited as an informant by Isabel Puente, a beautiful US agent investigating a powerful Mexican crime family.
As he infiltrates the Mafia, Pescatore falls in love with Puente, but he clashes with her ally, Leo Mdez, chief of a Tijuana anticorruption unit. Politically charged violence escalates, plunging Pescatore into the lawless "triple border" region of South America and a showdown full of bloodshed and betrayal.
Writing with rapid-fire intensity, Sebastian Rotella captures the despair and intrigue of the borderlands, where enforcing the law has become an act of subversion. Triple Crossing is an explosive and riveting debut.
''There have been many south-of-the-border/drug war novels, but this is the best one I've come across by a mile.'' - George Pelecanos, New York Times bestselling author
''Reporter Rotella takes up crime fiction with energy and righteous indignation, plunging readers into the surreal three-ring circus along the border between Tijuana and San Diego . . . A strongly choreographed, authentically detailed, and sharply funny tale of cultural complexity and raging global criminality.'' - Booklist
''Journalist Rotella explores the hot-button issue of immigration with its political, social, and emotional ramifications in his superb fiction debut . . . Unflinching views of a double agent's harrowing life, a violence-drenched Mexican jail, and the wild border areas complement the provocative plot.'' - Publishers Weekly
