"Smugglers 3: Accidental Kingpin" is an action novel about one mans descent into the dark world of drug cartels. One day when Geraldo is fishing with his friends, the group of men finds a cooler filled with drugs floating in the ocean. They make the decision to sell it and get rich. However, the men discover that not only is living the luxurious life hard to give up, they have a talent for selling. Soon they're kingpins all the way up the coast, and they easily transition from selling to murder when it suits their purposes. But the life of a kingpin is dangerous not only is the DEA on their tail, but members of the cartel… I like suspense novels a lot, especially for light reads when I just want some entertainment. I also liked the idea of a group of men who accidentally fall into the drug trade and become successes. However, this fell a little flat for me I think because the characters werent very deep. The action parts are good--though I feel like they could have been more descriptive--but I wanted to see more of the men's internal struggle with the crime. They all just agree to sell drugs and then to murder and torture and it seems like an easy decision. They dont seem to have any emotion other than greed and a desire for self-preservation. In sum, I think "Smugglers 3" could have been more than an exciting thriller novel--it could have been a little deeper, which would have made the story both more entertaining and more convincing.

During a friendly fishing trip, Geraldo and his friends come across a floating cooler containing 44 kilos of cocaine. They agree to cut and sell it in small quantities so as not to create suspicion. Before long though, they are spending money galore, which in turn puts them in the radar of crooked cops and the Mexican cartel. I honestly didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two. Even though a few of the original characters were brought back, it still was lacking for me. All the carelessness and callousness had me constantly fearing for Geraldo’s family. I guess greed is an addictive motivator. I also noticed that the author used the title of one of his books in the story. That was a nice touch. I would have liked more story along that line though. I think it would have added a little more strength to the scene.
