Trouble big as all hell.

Retired sheriff's detective Al Quinn hasn't spoken to his brother, Maury, in twenty years. When Maury lands in the hospital under suspicious circumstances, though, Al reluctantly abandons his quiet country seclusion to look into the matter. A second attempt to take Maury out drives the brothers back to Al's lakeside home, where Al knows the territory, but they're not alone for long. ICE agents demand that Maury rat on his silent partner, city cop Fergie Jergens comes investigating the murders of Maury's lady friends, and someone takes a match to Al's house.

Al soon learns his problems are only getting started-his brother's in trouble on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Caught in a ruthless power struggle between the ICE and Los Zetas, a vicious Mexican mafia bent on ascendancy, Al learns the hard way who he can trust-and who's willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.

With everything he loves on the line, Al will find out just how far he'll go to protect his own.
