Christopher Irvin - Federales

This novella from promising newcomer Christopher Irvin is a must for fans of modern hardboiled and noir.   Former Mexican Federal Agent Marcos Camarena has left his job for the quiet of a seaside town.  Sick of the violence and corruption, all he wants is a life of peace.  But when a friend asks him to play bodyguard for an outspoken politician, he takes the job against his better judgement.  "Federales is an absolute gut-punch of a novella. The story of one man's search for redemption and justice within a Mexican system that has long-forgotten the meaning of either will haunt you long after the last page is turned."--Todd Robinson.
