 What is Silver Lead and Dead?


Mexico is collapsing under the weight of the drug cartels’ murderous struggle to dominate the international drug trade. While on a mission to rescue a kidnapped family friend, ex-CIA agent Evan Hernandez stumbles into a conflict between two other deadly forces: an ambitious cartel leader with a desire to reshape Mexico, and Dark Cloud, a government-sponsored mercenary outfit run by an ex-CIA agent from Evan’s past. Dark Cloud’s mission: to create a vacuum of power and control the remaining crime syndicates. Evan finds himself immersed once again into a life he knows too well—the same life of deceit and danger that has already cost him his family.
