34 Degrees North is the latitude of Juarez and El Paso — two cities with one soul — or 17 Degrees North for each. Jack Sloan follows a trail between Juarez and Santa Fe with several stops along the way. The novel kicks off in the barrancas of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe, with Jack’s discovery of a satchel full of cash. Jack tells his wife Darlene about his find, and they’re both sucked into the most dangerous mystery of their lives, because somewhere between Juarez and Santa Fe, a relentless killer stalks his victims searching for his money. 17 Degrees North: A Jack Sloan Novel is the second book in the action-packed Border Wars Trilogy.
