Description

The Present: Texas Ranger Caitlin Strong, Cort Wesley Masters, and his teenage boys, survive a terrifying gun battle. Caitlin and Cort Wesley pursue the perpetrators only to discover that the targets were actually the boys! That sets the two off on a trail winding through the past and present. Along the way they confront terrible truths dating all the way back to the opium smuggling that helped finance the Mexican Revolution. That is until the Texas Rangers, led by Caitlin's grandfather and great-grandfather, struck back with the aid of Emiliano Zapata, wiping out the early drug lords responsible. Now the remnants of that powerful criminal lineage are out for vengeance against Zapata's remaining relatives, including the late mother of Cort Wesley's two sons-and thus the boys are targets, too. The final battles of that war will take place in Texas with nothing less than the country's future at stake.show more
