About the Book
Tom and Samantha Hastings, warm weather Minnesotans and winter Texans, are currently enjoying the balmy climate at Texas Palms Resort in Donna, Texas.
Their stay is interrupted by a stranger named Nick, who offers Tom a part-time job: ferrying oil tanker truckers from Texas Palms across the border to Progreso, Mexico, where they will set off on their run to Bloomington, Minnesota. Tom quickly accepts, but Samantha soon has concerns about the legitimacy of the job.
Her reservations deepen when first one man and then another are murdered at Texas Palms, blown up in their golf carts. Both men are far from being innocent victims. They seem to belong to a rival organization seeking to interfere with the company Tom works for.
The scenario is reminiscent of what Sammy saw in The Godfather, but will Tom listen to her concerns, or will he too meet a gruesome fate?
