UtopiaTexas

What happens when men of principle become men of violence?

In the quiet town of Utopia, Texas, life is simple. Monty Kilpatrick does his duty as a local game warden, catching poachers, smoking too many cigarettes, and trying to keep his marriage afloat. Most days he thinks about the loss of his young son and how to not be tempted to stray from his vows by one of the local girls.

But just across the border in Mexico, drug cartel kingpin Juan Diaz is running his empire with an iron fist. Utopia is part of the cartel's main trafficking routes, and when Monty arrests Diaz's brother during what he thought was a routine traffic stop, the men's paths cross. In a moment, the formerly peaceful Utopia becomes a war zone.

Set in cartel haciendas and the rugged Texas landscape and featuring plenty of guns, explosions, and helicopters, Utopia, Texas pits Monty and Juan against each other, both bound by the opposing set of laws they've chosen to follow. In order to save his town, his wife, and his pride, Monty must be ready to lose everything he holds true.

My thoughts...

Utopia, Texas was a fast paced and strikingly authentic... the twists and turns will keep you guessing what will happen next and you'll never believe how it ends...  Glasscock III has it all - suspenseful plot, magnificent scenery, and a hero who is tough but truly connected to his family.

For those who enjoy reading books authored by C. J. Box and William Kent Krueger will definitely enjoy reading Utopia, Texas.  Don't walk run to your computer and download this fantastic read to your kindle while it's still 99 cents.  It's a great bargain and it's so good that the author may decide to increase the price soon.
