Sonny Kalup returns, this time after having been asked by the Governor of Texas to accept the position of Special Prosecutor on a case where three U.S. Border Patrol Agents have been accused by Mexico of firing across the border and killing one of their border patrol agents.

The Border Incident, my fifth novel and the second Sonny Kalup mystery deals with a fictional incident that takes place in Texas along the border with Mexico. As a consequence of the events set forth in my first Kalup novel, Kalup's Crossroads, Sonny, a former Navy SEAL, DEA Agent, and Assistant U.S. Attorney, left the U.S. Attorney's Office and went into private practice.

The story begins when he receives a call from the governor of Texas telling him of the incident and that the Mexican government claims that one of their border patrol agents was killed by an American Border Patrol Agent firing across the border and that Mexico demands the extradition of the three American Border Agents involved.

Texas Governor Ward Chandler realizes that the incident creates a conflict of interest for Texas authorities and calls Sonny asking him to accept the position of Special Prosecutor and go to Texas to head up an investigation into the incident. After some consideration Sonny accepts the job and takes his "team" with him to Austin.

Working with Texas Law Enforcement officials, Sonny and his team begin the business of gathering information and evidence in an effort to resolve the questions raised by Mexico. In doing so demands are made of the Mexican Government to release sufficient evidence to sustain their request for extradition. All such requests are denied. The matter is further complicated by the interference of Mexico's notorious Sonora Drug Cartel and their enforcement arm, the Peligrosos, and increases the danger to Sonny and his team.

As the story unwinds confusion, deceit, corruption, and further brutality and murder all stand in the way of justice. Sonny must decide if the allegations made by the Mexicans are legitimate and what to do about them. The political situation created by the incident requires that Sonny consider very carefully each move he makes in handling this matter.

What follows is a plot replete with dark alleys, sub plots, action, and murder that will change the lives of Sonny and the members of his team forever.
