I had this on my wish list after debating on whether or not to buy it and I'm glad I did. Slow pace to start which soon picks up and grips you to read constantly. Every spare moment of the last two days I have had my eyes glued to the kindle. Well written and flows perfectly through each chapter. A thoroughly enjoyable read and would make a brilliant film.
On finishing "Border Crossings", one develops a more thorough appreciation of the whole picture of what this book's subject is: the ruthless evil of the Cartel-monster with its deadly tentacles reaching into the lives of the many characters, both good and bad. I wondered how the two main sub-stories would meld together eventually, but such an anticipated union was not to be. Instead, we find a two pronged attack by independent heroines, aided by their allies, against the representatives of the amoral Goliath-like beast, in their quests for justice. Later on, there is a very subtle touch at Dallas Airport where we think the two heroines might meet, but the ships simply pass in the night. It is satisfying to see many of the evil-doers meet their comeuppance, yet irritating to the point of anger when a certain little old woman escapes hers. The book is very engaging and has a clear attraction to continue reading it sooner rather than later. The characters are well painted, both by description and through their dialogue, as are also the settings, particularly that of Miss Lydia's miserable compound. "Border Crossings" certainly rouses one's empathy and is to be thoroughly recommended as a good read.
