‘Narcotrafficante’ Tale Worth Reading

I’m enjoying T. Jefferson Parker’s IRON RIVER, a violent yet poetic account of the international drug war between the United States and Mexico.

Parker is a great storyteller but he’s also an acute student of political science, and has a keen grasp on the forces that lead to a flow of guns south across the border (Parker’s titular “Iron River”) and the flow of narcotics north to the States.

I love it when authors deftly blend their fictional tales into the realpolitik world in which we live.

IRON RIVER is a fine read.
