To March Into Hell

~ Book 1 in the Gas Lamp Trilogy ~

by Ron Parham

Jake Delgado—hard-drinking, maverick private investigator—is finally getting his life in order with his new partner, Amos Stillwater. He's cut down on his drinking and even falls for a local bartender in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego. But his comfortable life is turned upside down when he receives news that his older brother, Freddie, has been found living in Tijuana and is in trouble. Jake is lured down to Tijuana to find him, not knowing that Raza, also known as El Matador (the killer)—the main hit man for the Tijuana drug cartel and who just got out of prison—is waiting.
      Two years earlier, Jake killed a terrorist, Angel Rojas, to save the life of three kidnapped teenage girls. Raza is Angel's brother and he will do anything to avenge Angel's death. Jake is drawn into the underbelly of Tijuana and, along with his partner and a few friends, fights for his life and the lives of his friends against Raza. It takes every last ounce of Jake's strength and courage to march into the hell of Baja California, knowing that he may never walk back out alive.

Praise for To March Into Hell

"To March Into Hell is a fast-paced runaway of a novel that never fails to surprise, shock and amaze the reader. With memorable, well-developed characters, both of the good and evil variety, Parham reprises his maverick private investigator Jake Delgado from past novels. As a sequel to his first novel, Molly's Moon, To March Into Hell plunks Delgado smack dab into the foul heart of the worst that Tijuana, Mexico, has to offer. It is powerful, tension-packed fiction, exactly what we've come to expect from Parham, a master of the action-thriller genre. Another five-star performance from a great storyteller."
~ J.B. Hogan, author of The Apostate, Fallen, and Mexican Skies.
