At a party thrown by La Navaja, Eddie falls for a beautiful woman named Miranda, whom he learns too late is the girlfriend of El Segundo, La Navaja's only living brother.

Publisher's Summary

Eddie Gato Wolfe is a young, impetuous member of the Wolfe clan of Texas outlaws, gun-runners, and bootleggers, which goes back generations. Increasingly unfulfilled by his minor role in the family's operations and eager to strike out on his own, Eddie crosses the border to work security for a major Mexican drug cartel run by the ruthless La Navaja.

At a party thrown by La Navaja, Eddie falls for a beautiful woman named Miranda, whom he learns too late is the girlfriend of El Segundo, La Navaja's only living brother. When El Segundo finds Eddie and Miranda together, Eddie is forced to kill El Segundo, forcing the two young lovers to escape the cartel in the hopes of crossing the border and reuniting with the Wolfe family.

However, La Navaja's reach is far and his lust for revenge insatiable, and he sends a horde of operatives on Eddie and Miranda's tail, along with a notorious bounty hunter named El Martillo. As Eddie and Miranda try to evade capture, they realize that even if La Navaja's men don't kill them, a once-in-a-generation sandstorm very well may. Fighting their way through the brutal Mexican desert, Eddie and Miranda's only hope may be the very Wolfe family that Eddie abandoned, who will cut through anything and anyone in their path to save one of their own.

At once a riveting thriller and an inside look at the blood-drenched Mexican drug trade, The Rules Of Wolfe is another classic crime novel from a writer Entertainment Weekly calls, "one of the greatest chroniclers of the mythical American outlaw life".

What the Critics Say

"Brilliant... Blake's masterful action-driven narrative and his revealing look at the ultraviolent Mexican drug trade rival the best of Don Winslow and Kem Nunn." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Entertaining"
    Would you listen to The Rules of Wolfe again? Why?

    I would


    What other book might you compare The Rules of Wolfe to and why?

    None that I have listened to. This is a good change from Vince Flynn. Daniel Silva or Tom Clansy books


    Any additional comments?

    This is a can't miss book. Entertaining from start to finish. Of course, even more if you're a hispanic who has lived in South Texas.

    "This book had more promise than substance"

    I felt like I teetered on the edge of liking and not liking this book. I loved the idea overall - But the story to bring it together did not rock my world... I really liked David DeSantos overall but there were a couple of issues. Though his name sounds Latino - His voices for some of the Spanish characters were grating at times... His accents were too pronounced as if a Gringo was doing a Spanish accent. I only know a little Spanish - But it seemed some of his parts where Spanish was spoken - The sentence structure was more English than Spanish. I enjoyed his English parts very much. Especially Frank and his brother. He spoke with such ease that the voice alone drew me in. I made it through this book which says a lot. But I think a 3 star rating is very fair.
