Colonel Charley Castillo is back in action.. Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. Chaos reigns... back in the fight. The President has had enough—he needs to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band of fighters and put them on the case. Unfortunately, that might be impossible. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo's guts, having had him forcibly retired from the military. And Castillo's men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding. There are also whispers that the President himself is becoming mentally unbalanced. How will it all play out? No one knows for sure, but for Castillo and company, only one thing is definite: it will be hazardous duty.
