A border ain't nothing but a law drawn in the sand. So says a small-town Texas sheriff in Ted Bell's most gripping espionage thriller to date.

Things along America's southern border are rapidly reaching the boiling point. American girls are being snatched from their homes, ranches are burning, and the number of deadly confrontations along the Mexican boarder grows daily.

At night, armed Mexican troops cross the border at will in support of narcotics smugglers and illegal immigrants. By day, Americans take up arms and plan reprisals. An all-out border war is no longer inconceivable. It's happening!

On assignment for the British Secret Service, a man leads a mysterious expedition into the heart of darkness. Sailing up the furthest reaches of the Amazon River, he is captured by a brutal tribe of indigenous cannibals.

Forced into slave labor, he witnesses the unimaginable. Golden domes and minarets rise beneath the rainforest canopy. Vast terror armies are being recruited and trained in the jungle. Their goal: a vicious jihad that will unite one continent...and destroy another. They possess weapons only dreamed of by the Western allies. Somehow he must escape his captors and live to tell his tale.

With tensions on its southern border threatening to ignite into war, America must look to the one man who might be able to confront the demons in the jungle...and destroy them.

Alex Hawke, with the aid of brilliant Scotland Yard Inspector Ambrose Congreve, and an unstoppable force of nature named Stokely Jones, begins a river journey fraught with peril. Hawke once again takes listeners right to that thin border between fear and overwhelming terror. It's merely a line drawn in the sand. Cross it at your peril.

    " Preposterous plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lou | 2/12/2014

    " Totally implausible plot. Waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti Concannon | 2/11/2014

    " Scary paranoid fantasy about "what if" the Mexican drug wars escalate and who is really behind them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pmcdnld2 | 2/7/2014

    " Very interesting premise for the anti-America conspiracy genre but resolution was unrealistic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/5/2014

    " The usual junk. Not exactly quality writing, but a page-turner nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline | 1/31/2014

    " This book is fast paced and weaves several story lines together. The main character is a handsome blend of James Bond and Jason Bourne. This is a book that will keep you up all night reading. Interesting subject matter, disturbing in places and definitely thought provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/27/2014

    " Action/adventure at its best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dottie | 1/26/2014

    " Good super spy thriller. Now I have to read other books in series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lydia | 1/26/2014

    " Plot had potential. Style was uninspiring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylynn Johnsen | 1/20/2014

    " More really cool spies with really cool toys. Saving America this time. It was a great story, unfortunately it was entirely too plausible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vince Carter | 1/15/2014

    " Suspenseful saga mixes elements of radical Islamic terrorism with Latin American Marxist revolutionaries and then with cross-border illegal immigrant pressures and finally with high tech robotic weaponry--all posing as the threat being battled by an international team of rescuers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/28/2013

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Alex Hawke; Mexico, South America, and radical Islamics are joining forces to strike at America; overly long and with too many threads compared to prior works "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Masha K. | 12/1/2013

    " Non-stop action and (for once) plausible villains make for very good entertainment. This author never disappoints and deserves more appreciation from the political thriller fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 10/23/2013

    " Another great swashbuckler. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sage Streck | 4/29/2013

    " My favorite of the Hawke stories. I love these books! Hawke is like a combination of Dirk Pitt and James Bond--I've enjoyed every minute spent reading about his adventures! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bev | 11/21/2012

    " One of the best Alex Hawke books I've read. Lots of suspense and about 1/4 of the way through, it really had me hooked. One of those novels you HAVE to finish. Makes me want to read another. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dugger | 9/23/2012

    " Couldn't even finish this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loyd Mcintosh | 9/14/2012

    " Of all Ted Bell's Alex Hawke novels, this one was, without question, my favorite. It seemed, to me, that there was more action and less emphasis on Hawke's back story that tends to drag the others down a little. Loved it. "

    " A definite guy book, but I like how it moved along, and the concept....you never know, or do we??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/10/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 7/22/2010

    " I love this series, but this one was not up to usual par. Slow pacing. Disjointed. And leas focus on Hawke as a Pirate. Still. Entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 7/21/2010

    " This was my first Ted Bell book and it was captivating. I think I read it over the course of a week or so. Every free moment I had, I was reading this book. The "real-life" ideas in this book are what kept me coming back for me. Really fun read. "
