Can a war on drugs really be won by the men and women of law enforcement? Most of the critics say no way, that we are wasting tax payer money. If these same critics were to walk in the shoes of the patrol officers, detectives or the narcotic officers they might just have a change of heart. The Drug Task Force, The Cartel, is a fictional book about real life members of just such a force. This book is the first in a planned three book series of the world in which these men and women work. The characters are real and the situations can be real, but make no mistake about the dangers of this war. Every day is a new battle field and every arrest is a small battle that is won by these brave men and women. This war is 24/7 and these men live in a pretend world with real life and death consequences. The Cartel is a Mexican organization of ruthless men who only care about 2 things, drugs and money. They have made a move into the United States bringing their kind of chaos and lawlessness with them. The Cartel is trying to establish a drug route from Mexico to Chicago and to hell with whoever stands against them. They have their own agenda and they don't care who gets in their way. The only mistake they made was they underestimated the determination and courage of members of this task force. The only way to stop the Cartel's lust for money and blood is an eye for an eye attitude and commitment. Can the war on drugs be won; can The Drug Task Force survive and bring an end to the Cartels' reign of terror?
