King of Swords, by Russell Blake

I'm on a bit of a Russell Blake run, having just finished reading the latest in Mr. Blake's "Jet" series, I thought I'd try out another of his novels.   This one looks at Mexico's drug cartels, with Mexican policeman Captain Cruz as the honest cop trying to stop an assassination by El Rey (the king of swords of the title).

This was a good enough fast read, but I found myself rooting for the assassin more than I'd have expected.   For a forgettable distraction, this is worth reading at a Kindle discount price.
