Claudia Seagal became an FBI agent after her boyfriend’s savage death. But he may have been just another killer.
When she was a college student, Claudia accompanied her lover to Mazatlán for spring break. The last-minute trip was exciting until Ravi’s brutal murder. Unable to help him while he perished in a dirty alley, she joined the FBI in response to his senseless death. A decade later, a reluctant witness comes forward, and Claudia discovers that the trip wasn’t spontaneous. It was premeditated. Ravi went to meet a man who worked for the cartel.
While she investigates the new lead and Ravi’s betrayal, she and robotics expert Baxter Cruise travel to Mexico for answers. In the foreign country, her FBI badge is useless, and on both sides of the border, someone wants them dead.
Meanwhile, Mexico’s national archaeological museum hires investigator Kurt Meyers (Dark Pool) to locate priceless pre-Columbian artifacts that went missing at the same time as Ravi’s murder. When another man leaves a trail of bodies in his quest to acquire the artifacts, Kurt searches for a connection between his case and the cold-case murder of a college student in Mazatlán.
As Claudia and Baxter unravel the truth about Ravi’s death, it threatens the secrets of the local cartel boss. When the four factions descend on the same turf, not everyone gets out alive.
