Narco: A Novel
"Nando Flores sits in El Loro bar drinking his complimentary bottle of Carta Blanca beer waiting to answer his summons from Mexicali Rose. When she appears with her face shielded by black sunglasses, Flores already knows what to expect. "What would you say if I told you that I had the ultimate score lined up?" she asks, catapulting Flores into a journey that will change - and possibly end - his life." "Mexicali Rose knows that Nando cannot reject her offer, not when he is desperate to escape his career of smuggling cars, drugs, and people for meager bundles of dollar bills. When Mexicali Rose's instructions lead him to Xiomara, a brave and puzzling woman willing to pay him one hundred thousand dollars to take her safely to Cuidad Juarez, Mexico, Flores knows he will pay for his decision. With tires spinning, Flores and Xiomara struggle to traverse the sparsely inhabited desert, all the while trying to evade the henchmen of drug cartels."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
