Paul is a man whose fondness for life on the edge turns his midlife crisis into a nuclear meltdown. Happy to leave his life behind in America, Paul boards a freighter bound for Panama with a backpack and a few thousand dollars, ready to conquer a new wilderness.
With a boat, balls, and his newfound brothers, Paul-now calling himself Puma-leads a small but tight-knit group on a meteoric rise as a new criminal empire. With nothing left to lose, Puma operates with fearless abandon, further cementing his relationship as a member of Panamanian organized crime. While running guns and cocaine from the United States to Colombia and back to Panama, Puma transforms into a modern-day smuggler who soon becomes a blip on the CIA's radar screen. But Puma's path is about to take a new direction when, propelled by his desire to make a friend's dream come true, he steps in to make the biggest deal of his life.
In this gripping thriller, a smuggler who gives himself freely to the winds of destiny's path and through God's mysterious ways finds his larger purpose-a seeker of justice for the defenseless, the forgotten, and the unavenged.

I found the book to be fast-paced, with great character development. It was a great read. From a first-time novelist, I found it well-written and clearly laid out. The subject matter was a bit raw, but for the genre of criminal fiction, it seems to be fitting. I look forward to reading more from this author.
This is an amazingly real book, the action was over-the-top. Man, Puma is one bad-a$$ character. The book was like watching a movie, it just drove me along with the story.
