Maverick agent Valentine Pescatore investigates a brutal killing that leads him across borders and reveals a vast conspiracy of wealth and power terrifyingly close to home.Valentine Pescatore, the dashing ex-U.S. Border Patrol agent, finds himself back on American soil, investigating the merciless killing of a group of women in a motel room. At first, the crime seems to be a straightforward case of gangsters battling for territory. Soon, however, the motive is revealed to be much deeper and more sinister: a single witness who knows too much is being hunted, at any cost. From an author who has been praised for his "pounding action scenes [and] ferocious prose style" (Marilyn Stasio, NYTBR), RIP CREW races at breakneck speed as Pescatore finds himself face-to-face with his most terrifying assignment yet.

Rip Crew is my kind of book. As soon as I understood that it was dealing with human trafficking, money, drugs, and the people behind it, I knew I would love it. The characters are well drawn and easily relatable which makes the story engaging and absorbing. Valentine Pescatore’s mission is to find out who killed ten female immigrants transported to the United States illegally. Along the way we meet a Mexican reporter who is investigating a large corporation and its ties to human trafficking. What follows is a sad, infuriating, and fascinating glimpse into human trafficking and the people who are doing it and those who are charged with putting the criminals behind bars.
