Our protagonist Colter encounters all kinds of characters associated with the US-Mexico border, including drug cartel members. It was reported last year by the Washington Post that Mexico's crime wave has left about 25,000 adults and children missing in the past six years. A leaked list of names of the disappeared suggest their own chilling stories not fully told with entries noting: "Her daughter was forced in a car" and "his wife left to buy medicine and disappeared".
