His newest release, Border Lords, is fourth in the Charlie Hood series. Hood is a Los Angeles Sheriffs deputy and a member of a special ATF task force, so you would think the bad guys dont stand a chance against him. In normal circumstances, that might be true. The thing is, Parker never puts Hood in normal circumstances. Border Lords has him facing down Mexican drug cartels, corrupt officials and maybe a fellow ATF agent.
The book chronicles the search for ATF agent Sean Ozburn, who has disappeared while investigating the Baja Cartel undercover. His only communication has been a series of strange videos his wife is receiving. Unsure if the missing agent is in trouble or has changed sides, Hood sets out to find Oz. 6:30 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet.
