Overview

On the North American Continent a new form of terrorism has come into existence in the sovereign country of Mexico. It is fueled by the extensive flow of drugs from that country into the American black market. Recent reports place the financials of this trade at over twenty billion American dollars. On the Mexican side of the international border, there have been killings in the tens of thousands, over fifty thousand by one accounting.

On the American side of the border, Homeland Security and the American Border Patrol System have been on high alert manning major check points. A particular hotbed of violent activity and intense drug trafficking is the city of El Paso, Texas. Homeland Federal Agent, Joe Maki is being drawn into this festering region of illegal drug commerce by his boss, who is asking him to accompany a large supply of automatic weapons that are being transferred to the Border Patrol Unit in El Paso.

The mission becomes a disaster when the C-17 transport jet is hijacked by the Mexican Cartel and flown into Mexico. But taking Agent Joe Maki prisoner might have been the Cartel's worse nightmare. In this third volume of the series: Boston's Counter-Terrorism Unit, Robert M. Johnson has crafted a story filled with action and insight. Joe Maki, Homeland Agent is suddenly thrust into the heart of the Mexican underworld, where an army of hoodlums seeks to control the lucrative flow of illicit drugs into America. The problem is so vast that the Mexican government has had to rely on their military to address the problem. As usual, time is of the essence, and with limited resources and time running out, Joe Maki is on his own. The results are fascinating! "HiJacked Terror" is a must read.

Meet the Author

This is novel number 21 for Robert M. Johnson. His interest in the subject of Terrorism comes from his professional experience as a Psychotherapist. As a counselor he has spent thousands of hours assisting those suffering from the ravages of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. His research into historical fiction for his medieval novels, showed him the roots of this fanaticism that today we call TERRORISM. In the tenth century, a powerful Muslim leader named Hasan I Sabbah started a movement that came to be known as the Assassins. Using murder and dismemberment, he literally terrorized his contemporaries to impose his fanatical views on politics and society.

The Mexican Drug Cartels are using some of the same methods to promote their control of the regions where they run their drug creation and marketing operations. Their brand of Terrorism is as brutal as that of the Assassins. The stakes here are not just religious or political, they are economical, with an illicit drug trade that runs in the Billions of Dollars annually.
