about The Russian
In The Russian, New Mexico State Trooper Enrique (Ricky) Basurto joins other local, state, and federal agents in the Multi-Agency Human and Controlled Substance Interdiction Task Force. Focused along the desolate NM Hwy. 9 from Columbus to Animas, Ricky and his colleagues face the dangers of the powerful cartels, their heavily armed militias, the Russian Mafia, and the innocent men, women, and children who are their victims.
The near-ghost town of Hachita, New Mexico, is the bull’s eye in the war. It is here in the remote Chihuahua desert where life and death intersect, bringing about unexpected challenges to Ricky and his colleagues’ professionalism, ethics, and personal goals and fears.
