Milton surfaces in Mexico where he decides to help a young blogger who has risked her life to expose the cartels.
When an assassin known as Saint Death attempts her murder, Milton is set for his most difficult fight yet.
John Milton has been off the grid for six months. He surfaces in Ciudad Juarez, in Mexico, and immediately finds himself drawn into a vicious battle with the narco-gangs that control the borderlands.
He saves an idealistic young journalist who has been targeted for execution. The only way to keep her safe is to smuggle her into Texas. Working with the only untouchable cops in the city, and a bounty hunter whose motives are unclear, Milton must keep her safe until the crossing can be made.
But when the man looking for her is the legendary assassin Santa Muerta - Saint Death - that is a lot easier said than done.
