What people are saying:
I bought this book based on the title and plot summary and was not disappointed.
It's a clever story about drugs, money and corruption with some interesting characters and familiar settings for those who know the southern California area. The plot has some great twists and turns that draw you in deeper as the action plays out on both sides of the border on and off shore. The characters are believable and the storyline all too close to reality.
Dan has another adventure book, Tradewinds Calling, that is next on my reading list.
And I'm waiting for the sequel to this one....
