LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY
OUTSIDE THE HOUSE

      All of his flamboyant outward posturing served as a full-body mask. Cairo Martínez was a hard man in his heart. And in the moments before he fired a shot that would change someone’s life forever, he was just plain hard. Cairo’s manhood wrestled to break free from tight-fitting spandex underwear—transformed his dark camouflage cargo pants into a miniature tent trapped shaft-down in the dirt. Cairo cursed the marvel of modern performance apparel to himself as he traced scattered freckles over the soft lines of exposed flesh up and down the little woman’s naked body through the laser scope of his customized rifle. 
      Perra…loca, he groaned. Tan jodidamente sexy.
      She was a striking, sensual woman. So many curves for such a small frame. Her pale skin glowed against wavy, up-do hair knotted loose that glinted red. The way she bopped around made Cairo want to pounce. She seemed to be taking the greatest of pleasures in hand-washing the remnants of a lonely dinner for one, pausing to reflect in silent contemplation. 
      Cairo pretended it was anticipation.
      He inhaled through his nose. Tightened the lens of his scope. Watched the little woman close her eyes. Smile—deep and slow. Bend over one more time to wipe down the final, fat drops of water that had splattered on the counter and beneath the sink on the kitchen floor.
      Que hermosa criatura, Cairo whispered.
      He wrestled away the thought of aborting his current mission to pleasure himself one last time at her unsuspecting expense.
      Cairo could feel his heartbeat throbbing in the dirt.
      And then he pulled the trigger.
                                                                                               :::

INSIDE THE HOUSE
      Naked meant barefoot, and barefoot meant a natural slipping hazard. Aimee felt her right leg give as she started to slide on a small grouping of water droplets that had fallen as she washed the dishes. Not a cartoon-worthy, banana-peel wipeout. Just the first few inches of maybe doing the splits.
      And her clumsiness saved her life.
      For the moment.
      The single .308 caliber bullet ripped through the soft muscle in between her left shoulder blade and the back of her neck. Exited on a murderous path through the top of her left breast. Pinged with a sickening clink off the dark gray granite countertops and ricocheted up, shattering pieces of the subway tile backsplash.
      A violent, involuntary twist collided with the momentum of the impact—stopped Aimee from completing a full, double-legged split. Instead, she tumbled to the floor, clipped the edge of the kitchen sink as she fell, and landed hard on her left shoulder and ribs. Pain threatened to overtake the entire left side of her small body as bright red blood immediately pooled on the stark white tile around her.
      Her blood.
      Her pain.

What Others Are Saying
4.8 Stars out of 5
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!
