Overview

Daredevil DEA agent Jack Walker cruised down Hollywood Boulevard into the best unscheduled party of his career: a car-jacking featuring a .38 semiautomatic and his own movieland heroics. In any other city, the pretty woman he saved would be a star. Here she was Charlotte Rae, a former B-movie bombshell waving a lottery ticket straight from hell - a chance to get inside her husband's drug-smuggling empire. Charlotte Rae and Buddy Wingate were one of California's self-made platinum couples: the high-rolling discount furniture king and his bottle-blond trophy. It was Jack's job to penetrate Buddy's drug operation - and his marriage - and suddenly Jack's doing a better job than he ever dreamed.

What People are saying about this

James Elroy
The Cactus Garden is a righteous grabber....Read it and feel your blood pressure accelerate.
Michael Connelly
From the streets of L.A. to the backroads of Mexico, Robert Ward takes you by the collar and pulls you into the undercover world of high-level drug trafficking and investigation. Whether you are with the cartel bosses or the DEA, it's not always easy to tell the good guys from the bad, but in Ward's hands, you're a pro.
James Grady
Robert Ward's Cactus Garden scores a rare victory by giving the reader a fresh story about the people on crime's new battlefield -- a heroine who'll charm both male and female readers right out of their socks, and a hero whose flaws are as fascinating as his finesse. The Cactus Garden breaks the chains of genre fiction with a tale that's as much about American life in Hollywood as it is about thrilling intrigue.
