About The Book:
“…packs in an engrossing, fast-moving romp across Mexico. Robert Bohnert is a former CIA agent who spent time in a mental institution and can’t get over the death of his young son. A former colleague offers him a freelance assignment: travel to Mexico and pick up some stolen diamonds. Nothing goes as planned, and Bohnert finds himself first losing track of the canister and then on the run along with the girlfriend of one of the men who’s pursuing him. The questions become will they make it out of Mexico alive, and does the package really contain diamonds? For fans of the TV show “24,” this should fit the bill, while readers not as into thrillers may nevertheless be inclined to kill a few hours enjoying the suspense and human drama.” —Publishers Weekly
