A Men's Journal and Deadly Pleasures Best Book of the Year

Eddie Gato Wolfe is a young, impetuous member of the Wolfe family of Texas gun-runners that goes back generations. Increasingly unfulfilled by his minor role in family operations and eager to set out on his own, Eddie crosses the border to work security for a major Mexican drug cartel led by the ruthless La Navaja.

Eddie falls for a mysterious woman named Miranda, whom he learns too late is the property of an intimate member of La Navaja's organization. When their romance is discovered, Eddie and Miranda are forced to run for their lives, fleeing into the deadly Sonora Desert in hope of crossing the border to safety. But La Navaja's reach is far and his lust for revenge insatiable. If La Navaja's men don't kill Eddie and Miranda, the brutal desert just may. Their only hope: helpfrom the family that Eddie abandoned.

At once a riveting thriller and an inside look at the blood-drenched Mexican drug trade, The Rules of Wolfe is another classic crime novel from a writer Entertainment Weekly calls, "one of the greatest chroniclers of the mythical American outlaw life."

I just discovered the "border noir" genre. This one has a lot of violence in it. I would not recommend it for young adults, but it is of interest to adults. It was hard to put down, filled with action, but it reached a point of being disturbing somewhat. I had to know how it ended, so I finished it, but it left me feeling up tight. If you like the shoot em up kinds of novels, you'll love this one. If you want a story of the violence of Mexico, this is it. It also portrays some cartel or gang style situations. I found it rather scary. But it was very well written. Sounded real to me, and that's probably what scared me.
