The dramatic true story of two brothers living parallel lives on either side of the U.S.-Mexico border -- and how their lives converged in a major criminal conspiracy. José Treviño was a devoted family man working as a bricklayer in Texas. Back in Mexico, his younger brother Miguel was ascending to the top ranks of Los Zetas, a notoriously bloody drug cartel. One day José showed up at a quarter-horse auction and bid close to a million dollars for a horse, which caught the attention of an eager young FBI agent named Scott Lawson. Lawson enlisted Tyler Graham, an American rancher who would eventually breed José's champion horse -- nicknamed Bones -- to help the FBI infiltrate what was revealing itself to be a major money-laundering operation, with the ultimate goal of capturing the infamous Miguel Treviño. -- Adapted from summary.

Lively, but reads like a very long magazine article. Too long, too much detail. I was interested in the Mexican cartel connection, but not so interested in horses.
