It's been years since Edward Kazmierski has seen his wayward son, or even allowed thoughts of Tyler to enter his mind. The last place he knew Tyler to be was in an El Paso jail six years ago. Then, in one day, he receives a cryptic phone call telling him that his son needs him in Mexico, another from a federal agent searching for Tyler, and a terrifying visit from the Mexican cartel. South of the border, an impulsive act has set into motion a chain of events that will almost certainly lead to death for Tyler and those who try to help him. But before he can recover his son, Ed will have to tear down the wall that has been built up between them.
