Hardin Steel is back in “The Paloma Crossing!”
Hardin Steel worked twenty years as a DEA agent: drank too much, divorced twice, made a number of serious enemies, and retired at the behest of the agency. He’s now the sheriff of Cameron County, the southernmost county in Texas, where cocaine and corruption are king.
Across the river, Frederick Ochoa has a new weapon in his arsenal: Stinger missiles. Originally supplied to the mujahideen by the CIA, twenty of the surface-to-air missiles are now in the hands of the deadliest drug lord in Mexico. And he wastes no time in putting them to good use.
Steel fights the cartel, local corruption, and his own demons, the only way he knows how—down and dirty—winner take all.
About the Author
You Better Read The Paloma Crossing Pilgram!
Marcus just finished this very exciting action packed book. The second book in the Hardin Steel series, The Paloma Crossing is written by the creative author, Randall Reneau. This author is new to us and shall not be soon forgotten. This fun read includes what most novels in the Mystery, Thriller & Suspense genre do murder and of course money. Marcus found that this book had an excellent cast of characters from drug lords and traffickers to DEA agents and other law enforcement officials. His favorite bad guys, highly trained and experienced mercenaries with polished lethal skills, were also found amongst the well-developed cast of characters in this book.
I must mention the lead character in which he immediately became a fan of, Sheriff Hardin Steel, AKA Stainless Steel among friends. This guy makes the story remarkable. You see, Steel is a man’s man, the proverbial “John Wayne” kinda guy. Rough, tough, and take no B.S. from anyone kind of guy. OOORAH! With Steel as the main character in other excellent stories by this skilled writer, we are looking forward to more epic adventures in the future.
I also wanted to take a moment to comment on the impeccable job that was done with proofing and editing this novel. I don’t want to be the bad guy, but we did not like the cover art. Marcus found it to be confusing and one dimensional. If we had judged this book by its cover, he probably would not have read it and would have missed the great story within.
