Too short.

I've fallen in love with these characters and this entire storyline. I wish this book was longer, but now I'm off to book 2.

Catch 22

The Cartel series are great but Carter Diamond and his beginnings are too short for the great storyline.

NEVER make a book this short again

LOVED IT! HOWEVER, I was on the edge of my seat when Cary pulled the plug saying "To be continued.." Don't ever have me holding my bladder trying to catch a glimpse of the next scene, just to leave me hanging like that!

Tooooooooo short!

Although I️ love The Cartel Saga, this book was a waste of time and money it is only 2 hours. It left a lot of space that could have been utilized more efficiently!
