    Border Patrol Agents protect our border They do their job in a humane fashion and they also risk their lives, sometimes on a daily basis This novel, although a fiction, will give you an insight into that world.Allegiance starts off with Cruz Marquez and his wife being tortured by an extremist group who seemlike robots than humans The no

    Derek Blass came to my notice with the excellent Enemy in Blue Allegiance, in my opinion, is even better.The action in this book begins about four and a half years after the events of Enemy in Blue and straight away you know that the events of that book have affected the characters and continue to do so.Cruz Marquez, the lawyer, is now providing
