Overview

When the mutilated body of a Border Patrol agent is discovered in Mexico, a secret US operation aimed at stopping human traffickers is unmasked and the subsequent investigation reveals one terrible fact; this murder wasn't an isolated act of violence, it was a declaration of war. Human freight, people trafficked for profit, has surpassed the value of the flow of drugs across the US border ten-fold. Here finally was a low-risk, high-profit product that could be jettisoned in transit without financial loss. Federal and state law enforcement units are soon overrun by the surge of the traffickers' game. The Border Security Task Force pursues the evidence trail left by the murdered agent. Texas Ranger Captain, Grady Gibson, the task force's director, brings in Christopher Garcia, the former Coast Guard chief of intelligence in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to lead the law enforcement effort. Together, they begin to piece together the motives for the murder and the identity of the trafficking empire, but realize they are outnumbered; corruption and betrayal have penetrated their own ranks. They need a miracle. It appears in a way that shakes both sides in this battle to their foundations.
