As the younger generation does battle with a cabal of drug dealers and crooked cops, they come to learn that their future is inextricably linked with their parents' history. A series of breakneck twists and turns puts the two generations on a collision course, culminating in a stunning showdown that will ultimately force Ben, Chon, and O to choose between their real families and their love for each other"--

It's 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adán Barrera, the head of El Federación, the world's most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller's partner. Finally putting Barrera away cost Keller dearly--the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead. Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. His obsession with justice--or is it revenge?--becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains, and deserts of Mexico to Washington's corridors of power to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona. Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexico's drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera--and himself--that he always knew must happen
Looking for a hero : Staff Sergeant Joe Ronnie Hooper and the Vietnam War by Peter Maslowski( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 499 libraries worldwide
Widely acclaimed as the Vietnam War's most highly decorated soldier, Joe Ronnie Hooper in many ways serves as a symbol for that conflict. His troubled, tempestuous life paralleled the upheavals in American society during the 1960s and 1970s, and his desperate quest to prove his manhood was uncomfortably akin to the macho image projected by three successive presidents in their "tough" policy in Southeast Asia. This book extracts the real Joe Hooper from the welter of lies and myths that swirl around his story; in doing so, the book uncovers not only the complicated truth about a complex, gifted, and disturbed man, but also the story of how Hooper's war was lost in Vietnam, not at home. In the distortions, half-truths, and outright lies that mar Hooper's medal of honor file, the authors find a painful reflection of the army's inability to be honest with itself and the American public.--From publisher description

"What begins as a routine missing person's case becomes a complex web of deceit, danger and international intrigue in this superb mystery. On sabbatical from duties as an operative for a group known as Friends of the Family, Neal Carey, last seen in A Cool Breeze on the Underground, is visited in Yorkshire by his mentor and asked to find a brilliant, albeit lovesick scientist and convince him to get back to work. Robert Pendleton, a biochemist and fertilizer expert for AgriTech corporation, has gone missing from a conference in San Francisco where he reportedly became smitten with a beautiful Chinese woman. After locating Pendleton and meeting the stunning Li Lan -- and nearly being killed by an unknown assailant when the pair flee from him -- Carey soon realizes that more than mere fertilizer know-how is at stake. The trail quickly takes him all the way to China where life-and-death political issues, vivid local color and absorbing historical detail enhance the chase and reinforce suspense as the story reaches its surprising resolution." --
