A Trio of Cartels
by Michael Elia
A Trio of Cartels makes key points about Americas drug wars, like why poor farmers grow drugs, up to corruption in the legal system and the governments lack of action. The characters are all different with different personalities. They all look different and dress casually rather than formally.
Unlike dark, depressing thrillers with cold, detached characters, this novel is more sensitive and positive with sympathetic, down-to-earth characters to whom readers can relate.About the Author
