ATF agent Sean Ozburn is deep undercover, supporting the sicarios of the North Baja Cartel, when he suddenly goes completely dark, leaving Charlie Hood and the support team from Operation Blowdown with a safe house full of bodies and no explanation. Sean's only communication in the following days consists of a series of haunting digital videos sent to his desperately worried wife, Seliah.

As he pieces together evidence of his friend's strange quest and searches the border landscape, following faint signals to the man's whereabouts, Charlie Hood must determine if Oz is simply chasing demons deeper undercover than anyone has ever gone, or whether his friend has suffered a permanent break with his mission and his moral compass.

A crime novel of unprecedented scope and unrivaled storytelling ambition, The Border Lords revisits the fevered landscape of America's southern border - and confronts the unexplored depths of humanity's dark soul.

    " There is some pretty interesting medical stuff in this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 E.R. Yatscoff | 2/12/2014

    " Charlie Hood, on loan from the LASD to the ATF returns to thwart gun running to Mexico drug cartels. I like Charlie and how he operates. I can easily see how American agencies are losing the war against drugs and guns and even shooting each other down south. Anyhow, an ATF undercover man Sean Ozborn, has gone missing for months in Mexico. His sudden reappearance and attitude draw suspicion and rightly so. No one's sure if he's gone off the deep end or just trying to make the biggest bust ever for Blowdown, a special ATF assignment. I still liked Iron River better and you should read that one first. "

    " Less than one star - as in 1/4 of a star. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob108819 | 2/1/2014

    " I wanted to like this book. I really, really wanted to. I am a huge fan of T Jeff and read everything he writes. I am just not that impressed with the Charlie Hood series and each book has gotten worse. There are some interesting characters and interesting plots, but Hood is a bore and the books seem to wander. I find myself having a difficult time staying focused on the book while I am reading it. The supernatural theme does not belong in these books. The rabies twist was pretty interesting though. Really hoping for some new Charlie Hood material soon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hapzydeco | 1/24/2014

    " Plot moved too slowly. Never able to enter into Parker interpretation of the dark side. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack Alexander | 1/19/2014

    " So this Narc like guy contract rabies and goes a little nuts and takes it out on the drug cartel, blowing them to kingdom come. The character definitely appealed to me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jay | 1/17/2014

    " Man I thought this book went on forever. I was glad to be done with this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Springtxman | 1/9/2014

    " Ok book, part of the story deals with rabies in people, exposed Mike Finnegan some more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rotaugia | 12/13/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D.a. Whittemore | 11/22/2013

    " Excellent book. Scares you with what is going on in the "drug war" between the U.S. and Mexico. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 10/18/2013

    " This book was a much improvement from the last book in the series. It was easy to read and follow. The plot was interesting with Drug Cartel. Then of course there's a connection twist with vampires. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grabec | 10/7/2013

    " I really liked this book. I have read all of T Jef's book and have liked most of them. This one was fast paced and had an interesting plot. Would definitely recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Burt | 7/29/2013

    " A difficult read but a good story. It is a Charlie Hood serial novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debi | 6/28/2013

    " I'm a huge TJP fan is this book was disappointing "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 4/9/2013

    " Not as much Charlie Hood in this one, but the two other main 'side-stories' had an interesting inter-play with my favorite main character, The story lines continue to build towards a head-on collision course with good vs. evil and greed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 3/27/2013

    " Parker has disappointed me with his later books but I keep reading them anyway. There's a mystical tone to them that doesn't belong and his characters are on the dark side. Of course, this one had bats and after snakes they are my least favorite creature and the thought of them makes me cringe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 1/2/2013

    " A fast-paced somewhat disturbing book. "

    " Still a strong series with superb writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annie | 8/21/2012

    " If you are into the drug trade between California and Mexico, it's a good read. Well-written. Not my cup of tea at the moment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Russell | 7/25/2012

    " As usual, the writing is first-rate and in this case, marvelously hypnotic. Crime mystery at its best. "

    "
