Two drug-related murders fracture a community. A thousand miles away, a brazen abduction devastates an old friend. And Michael Doyle must make a choice that could destroy his life. Seduced by an insatiable urge to escape reality, North Texas teens are falling prey to the one weakness parents fear most—the use of illicit drugs. And North Texas is just the tip of the iceberg. With his city under siege by a series of drug deaths and a kidnapping, Michael Doyle and those closest to him are sucked into a twister so toxic and destructive, no one will be the same in its wake. From the jagged mountains and alluring beaches of Mexico to the suburban concrete jungle in North Texas, Michael defends an entire drug-ravaged generation against ruthless killers who attack on every front possible. And just when you think the dragon has been slayed, a vile act of cruelty threatens to shred his own family.
