Tequila Assassin: Malinalli Way by Greg Prosmushkin

Book Description

When Jack Fleming, former agent for the United States Special Forces, finds himself in a Mexican prison, he faces the choice between certain death behind bars and starting the greatest adventure of his life - an adventure that will lead him in pursuit of cash, drug lords, and the truth.

With his options limited, Jack finds himself deep in the dangerous world of the Alacran Cartel. As his journey leads him across the landscape of Mexico, Jack learns that he may not be on the side of the law after all, and that "the lawitself may not be as straightforward as it seems.

In a story packed with intrigue, murder and beautiful women, a brilliant adventure brings to light the true depth of human depravity and the surprising goodness that can be found even in the darkest places.

Jack Fleming was assumed to have been killed in Afghanistan five and half years ago. It seems that on most days, he might have wished that were true. But like the saying goes - if were easy, everyone would do it.

Book Readers Review

Tequila Assassin: Malinalli Way by Greg Prosmushkin is action packed with intrigue, murder, and adventure.  The story evolves around the main character Jack Fleming, the tale is told from Jack's point of view.  A former agent for the United States Special Forces, Fleming gets caught up in the world of drug lords, prison, and corruption. 

I found parts of the story disturbing yet compelled to continue to discover the outcome.  Prosmushkin's writing is to the point and vivid, some parts leaving little room for the imagination.  Overall, the novel is well written, flows easily, and is fast paced. It is not what I would normally choose to read but 'Special Forces' was the attraction.  I received a review copy for an honest opinion.  My recommendation, Tequila Assassin may not be for everyone.  If you do not mind a little bad language and an insight into human depravity, it is a fast read.
