Barbed Wire Border
ISBN: 0976172615

Tritium Press. 2005

Barbed Wire Border is a fictional blend of the routine chaos experienced along the 2,000 mile U.S. / Mexican border and the potential drama of a sinister attack by unknown terrorists who exploit our borders' weaknesses. The story brings to life the thrilling accounts of America 's little-known heroes, the federal agents of the U. S. Border Patrol, who relentlessly track and apprehend smugglers and terrorists determined to deliver their cargo of death to America at any cost. Barbed Wire Border takes you into the lives of the characters as they move through the dangerous streets of Tijuana, Mexico, hidden drug-smuggling tunnels, and the remote and shadowy cliffs and rock strewn mountain passes of the most remote parts of the U.S. / Mexican border. The page-turning suspense intensifies as terrorists slither through the secret world of cross-border smuggling and use a sinister new tool of terror to deliver a unique and devastating strike at the very heart of America! This is a frightening peek into the secret world of international smuggling, U.S. border enforcement, and terrorism. Filled with true white-knuckle excitement, this is a realistic story that could only have come from a voice from the inside.
