"Sexy, savvy private eye Fidler knows the US/Mexican border better than the Border Patrol. He cut his teeth down there while learning the smuggler’s trade from his late, unlamented Uncle Jake. So when Special Agent Aaron Sharp, the man who once saved Fiddler’s life, is executed in Mexico, Fiddler heads south to ask some unpopular questions. An encounter with a sniper convinces Fiddler that he is target number 2 in the ancient game of murder-for-profit. But whose profit? Fiddler is drawn deep into the smuggler’s subculture in Tijuana, a modern Casablanca with a salsa flavor. Accompanied by the Ice Cream King of Saigon with his black bag of high-tech tricks, Fiddler uncovers a pipeline that begins in the netherworld and emerges in the shadow of Southern California’s most powerful venture capital bank. Fiddler is sucked into the pipeline in a desperate effort to save not only himself and his friend, but also his beautiful ex-wife, Fiora, from Volker, the Russian chimera whose lethal brand of charm nearly killed them years before."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
