    This first novel succeeds in presenting a complicated, fast moving story of drug crime and revenge in Latin America and the United States. Cordell Overgaard takes the reader from Brazil to the East Coast, to Denver, Chicago, Florida, Columbia, Mexico, Arizona, and back again. The author ably portrays the cruelty and casual attitude toward violence and murder that accompanies the illegal drug trade. I was particularly impressed with the author's attention to the business and techniques of persona This first novel succeeds in presenting a complicated, fast moving story of drug crime and revenge in Latin America and the United States. Cordell Overgaard takes the reader from Brazil to the East Coast, to Denver, Chicago, Florida, Columbia, Mexico, Arizona, and back again. The author ably portrays the cruelty and casual attitude toward violence and murder that accompanies the illegal drug trade. I was particularly impressed with the author's attention to the business and techniques of personal security. But, what makes this story unique is the way the author incorporates his love and knowledge of the Paso Fino horse breed. Overgaard brings to life the places and events where this horse is bred and celebrated, and makes them integral to the plot and fabric of the story. The horses present a wonderful entrée into some of the most beautiful environs of Columbia. The Columbian horse show is one of the most vibrant crowd events brought to life in the story. As a first effort and a self-published one at that, there are elements of the story that could be much improved with greater editorial attention: copy editing, the interior lives of the characters(particularly the female characters), and the sex scenes were not quite up to par with the rest of the book. More troubling was that the characters are humorless even though there are many situations -including when two unmarried protagonists travel as husband and wife, that could have been more vibrant and memorable if the humor of their predicaments were more apparent. This could have made the characters more likable, believeable, and brought them to life a bit more. A bit of laughter might have made the sex scenes more fun too . . . just sayin'! These few imperfections aside, the story offers a glimpse of places, events, and ways of life that will be worth exploring for many readers. I wouldn't be at all surprised to find TM and the Little White Dog optioned for a screenplay someday. The non-stop action would make for an exciting film! I received a copy of this book for free from the goodreads firstreads givewaways program.

    This book has it all. Action, adventure, romance, intregue.... ok so maybe not it ALL. But a lot. The premise is great! It has DEA, horses and dogs. Oh My! But..... This book made me feel a little like this. Not quite connected. Wait, how did we get to this person getting married? Wait, how did we get away from the story line again? Wait, who just got shot? How did they fit in the story again? Which bad guy was that? So much was happening but I wanted it to be more coherent. Relationships going wher This book has it all.

Which bad guy was that? So much was happening but I wanted it to be more coherent. Relationships going where they did was a jump. The characters did not seem fleshed out because of it. The author obviously put a lot of research into some aspects of the story and you can tell but I also don't want to be reminded of it every other sentence. There was "almost" two stories in one. I wish the author would have focused on one and making it flow. It is apparent that the author has talent and could write some amazing works because of the level of imagination, imagery, research and story line but transitions will be key in making his success. Overall, I recommended the author and hopes that he continues to grow and write more. I recommend the premise of the story. But I don't recommend the actual book.

    The author handed this book to me as I was leaving a conference last fall, and I was frankly surprised. I didn't know Mr. Overgaard was an author, and was immediately skeptical. EVERYBODY wants to write a book....and most are pretty lame. I read it on the plane and before I knew it the 2-hour flight from Chicago was over. The book was enormously intriguing, and I couldn't wait to pick it back up again. I'm so busy that the only time I get quiet time is on flights.

I'm so busy that the only time I get quiet time is on flights. Mr. Overgaard's book is incredibly well-written and actually very informative (I don't know squat about horses, and even less about Latin American drug cartels). What a pleasant diversion -- everything a good book of drama and intrigue is meant to be.

    The story line of the DEA placing agents undercover as prize horse owners was an interesting concept. Also the whole organization of the drug cartels make up and operations was very well done. However, the dialogue was lacking. I found that the dialogue was choppy and at some places very cliche/cheesy. If there wasn't the two parts of overly explicit sexual content, I would recommend this book for early teens categories. Fun read but not great.

    Thanks, Goodreads, for another really good book. This book has romance, suspense, action, and horses and dogs - who could want more? It was hard to put down, this would be a great book to read on a lazy afternoon. Looking forward to more adventures of TM.

    The suspense put me on the edge of my seat at times. Would have liked to seen a bit more of the background of some of the characters. Enjoyed this book and would recommend it to friends.
