    Dinero, drogas y cárteles: Eso es lo que el novato agente del FBI esperaba tener cuando lo enviaron al pueblo fronterizo de Laredo; pero en cambio, se encontró con una tarea sedentaria, redactando reportes de inteligencia acerca de la guerra contra el narcotráfico. Hasta que, un día, le piden a Lawson que chequee una pista anónima: un caballo que se vendió en una subasta en Oklahoma por un precio mucho más elevado de lo usual, y el comprador fue Miguel Treviño, uno de los líderes de los Zetas, el cártel más brutal de México.

    Drugs, money, cartels: this is what FBI rookie Scott Lawson expected when he was sent to the border town of Laredo, but instead he's deskbound, writing intelligence reports about the drug war. Then, one day, Lawson is asked to check out an anonymous tip: a horse was sold at an Oklahoma auction house for a record-topping price, and the buyer was Miguel Trevino, one of the leaders of the Zetas, Mexico's most brutal drug cartel. The source suggested that Trevino was laundering money through American quarter horse racing.
