The Scion by Don Johnson

Dallas contractor, Quentin Abbot, has a mild fixation on old time cowboys, their music and their ways. He tells Wendy, his accountant and lover, that he will be gone to his father's funeral in Terwilliger on the Mexican border only a few days. However, circumstances plunge him into an unfamiliar world of tremendous wealth and power which he is ill-equipped to handle. The powerful and ruthless organization known as La Familia seems to be sticking a slimy finger into Westeco, the company he inherited from his father. The beautiful but scheming Babette offers a life of pleasure and luxury that goes against his entire value system. There is a way of redemption for Quentin but at a terrible personal price.
Adventure - Suspense: Against the backdrop of the Mexican crime organization, La Familia, more vicious and relentless than the Sicilian Mafia, we see the story of a likable man swept up in a heady world of tremendous wealth and power he is not equipped to handle. Seduced by a scheming beauty, he is finally redeemed only at great personal sacrifice.
