Description

A masterful, hard-hitting, fast-moving thriller about love, family, and loyalty set around the borderlands of Texas and Mexico. On a rainy winter night in Mexico City, a ten-member wedding party is kidnapped in front of the groom's family mansion. The perpetrator is a small-time gangster named El GalAn, who wants nothing more than to make his crew part of a major cartel and hopes that this crime will be his big break. He sets the wedding party's ransom at five million US dollars, to be paid in cash within twenty-four hours. The only captive not related to either the bride or the groom is the young Jessica Juliet Wolfe, a bridesmaid and close friend of the bride. Jessie also hails from a family of notorious outlaws that has branches on both sides of the border, and when the Wolfes learn of Jessie's abduction, the family decides to take swift action. Gritty and exhilarating, "This fast-paced, well-plotted thriller reads like a mix of Cormac McCarthy and Elmore Leonard" (Library Journal). From "one of the greatest chroniclers of the mythical American outlaw life" (Entertainment Weekly), The House of Wolfe "keeps the reader engaged as the action rushes toward a surprising and fully satisfying conclusion" (Publishers Weekly, starred review). "A hard-edged, fast-moving thriller that will hold your attention hostage-good luck getting away." -Booklist (starred review) "Blake has an unerring sense of control, and-though Elmore Leonard and Cormac McCarthy are lurking in the book's DNA-a distinctive voice . . . The House of Wolfe is a pungent and exhilarating read. " -Financial Times
