Silver Lead and Dead
By James Garmisch

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 wellthe same life of deceit and danger that has already cost him his family.



Moments before his execution, Huan is given a clear choice: infiltrate the Global Resistance—or die, and never see his children again.

 The Alliance is collapsing, and Huan, a former economist for the worldwide government, knows how it was engineered. History has been reset, the children of dissidents re-educated, and the family unit abolished. The facade of utopia is evaporating. 

 Meanwhile, beyond the city walls, the separated lands are shifting from despair to chaos. Smoldering discontent is about to explode. Huan is neither a soldier nor a spy, but he will have to become both—and quickly—if he is to survive and to save the family that does not know him.
