The Hit. The Hunt. The Hustle. The new Braxton Barrett novel.

An uprising, hidden in the streets of Juárez, Mexico, spills across the border.

Braxton Barrett's wife is randomly targeted by the Mexican Cartel's most notorious hitman--Cairo Martínez. And Barrett, a Lexington, Kentucky police detective, tries to protect his wife and figure out why.

Meanwhile, Lindsey Chappa, one of the FBI's top agents and Barrett's high school lover, is in Lexington tracking Cairo Martínez.

World's collide.

Can Barrett figure out what the hell is going on? Can he protect his wife? Will Chappa change things?

What Barrett uncovers will certainly change things...forever. And Lexington, Kentucky will never be the same!

These pages hum. Reading Heroin Highway feels like what it feels like to watch Gene Kelly dance. Beyond awe of talent and the varied emotions conjured, there’s this relentless, building buzz that I rarely get reading these days. It’s joy. Glee. A soulful glow. And it radiates from an artist having fun not just doing what he loves to do, or doing what he does better than most, but doing precisely what he was put on this Earth to do—and some-how makes it look effortless in the process. 

The characters pop. The story rips. The prose sings. Brandon Jozef tap danced all over these pages.

This book is badass because just when you think you want someone like Special Agent Lyndsey Chappa to have your back you also wonder if she’d have a gun pointed at the back of your head. Everyone’s on a journey and you absolutely want in on the team. Brandon Jozef had me picking and switching sides throughout. And more than once I woke my boyfriend up laughing out loud.

Cairo Martinez is my new favorite character of all-time. The way Brandon Jozef sets characters up to square off, brings them together to battle, and turns them loose on a world that feels very familiar is really something. The scenes almost feel like characters themselves.

As a combat veteran, I find a lot of thrillers overexplaining the technical stuff or just glossing over it. I feel like they talk down to the reader a bit or leave too much out on the other end of the barrel. This book does a great job of splitting the difference where the story is true to form and at the same time the liberties taken clearly mean something to the characters. They’re like little Easter eggs that show you more of who they are in addition to what they say on the page. Heroin Highway’s got a few folks who’ve seen war and I love the way Brandon Jozef waged it.

I grew up in the American South. With Heroin Highway, Brandon Jozef has pulled off a rare feat: capturing the essence of a place while serving up a world that feels like it takes place on a global stage. The back cover promises a collision course of the diametrically opposed but the layers he’s injected right into the front cover’s road are no accident. This book is a drug. It’s feral. And every page raises the high.

A lot of readers might see a southern-spun Jack Ryan and if that’s Brandon Jozef’s goal then good for him. For me Heroin Highway has the feeling of James Bond or Indiana Jones where just about anything goes and that made me want to strap into the Durango and cruise through the backroads taking no prisoners with Braxton Barrett!
