Publisher's Summary

A gritty, fast-paced thriller about the criminal underworld at work along both sides of the US-Mexico border and a young cop who goes undercover to bring it down.

Valentine Pescatore, a volatile rookie Border Patrol agent, is trying to survive the trenches of the Line in San Diego. He gets in trouble and finds himself recruited as an informant by Isabel Puente, a beautiful US agent investigating a powerful Mexican crime family.

As he infiltrates the Mafia, Pescatore falls in love with Puente, but he clashes with her ally, Leo Méndez, chief of a Tijuana anticorruption unit. Politically charged violence escalates, plunging Pescatore into the lawless “triple border” region of South America and a showdown full of bloodshed and betrayal.

Writing with rapid-fire intensity, Sebastian Rotella captures the despair and intrigue of the borderlands, where enforcing the law has become an act of subversion. Triple Crossing is an explosive and riveting debut.

    "Very well done story, plot, narration, solid"

    At first, the first 30 minutes or so I was not sure I was going to like this book, then I was totally immersed in it. This book is well written, the story is tight and seems to be very realistic. I was brought inside the world that the young agent found himself swept up in. The story keeps you on the edge of your seat and the narration is as good as it gets. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Unfulfilled Promise"

    This book had a shot at being terrific. Interesting concept, seedy initial location (US/Mexico border), exotic secondary location (middle of nowhere South America), money and drugs, power and its evil use, drug lords from every corner of the globe, honor and dishonor. Quite the concoction.

    What was produced, however, was the literary equivalent of creating the Mona Lisa from a "paint by numbers" kit. The end result is okay, but the artistry necessary to lift the piece to the next level was completely absent.

    This is a quick "read," a good story, is well narrated, and worth a listen. It certainly did not waste my time.

    In the end, however, given the book's possibilities, I was left with the sense of underachievement. I really wanted it to find its legs and wow me. It just didn't.

    "A perfect slice of life"

    This book captures the "Triple Crossing" fabulously. In rich detail it portrays the environment, the people and the situation in techni-coloured words.I came to this book with no previous knowledge of the subject, but by the end I had a vivid picture of the happenings around this nexus of activity.
