About the Book
Luis and Sergio met while working at Flores Cantina, waiting tables, washing dishes, and running errands for tips. They grew up understanding the financial failures of their city. Jobs were few and the pay was low.
When the Mexican Cartel offered them a job as Coyotes, they were ready for adventure and willing to do whatever was necessary to fill their pockets with money, or so they thought.
Quickly becoming the best Coyotes in the Mexican cartel, they are the first choice of Arturo, head of the cartel in Reynosa, to take tourists, as he calls them and illegal drugs through the desert, across the Rio Grande, and into America.
When they find themselves staring into the cold, unforgiving pistol of the bloodiest cartel enforcer in Mexico, who thinks they are stealing from Arturo, they know they will need a miracle to survive. But do miracles really happen? What they discover in the desert will change their lives forever.
