Overview

Prolific thriller writer Tetsuo "Ted" Takashima's engaging yarn presents a fresh perspective on the global refugee crisis

"Together we'll establish a new nation, from which the children will never need to flee. May God bless us all." Captain Jadon Green has been labeled the Border Butcher after a terrible tragedy between the US military and illegal immigrants forcing their way into the United States at the Mexico border wall. Dishonorably discharged from the Army, newly divorced, and resigned to a life of misery and loneliness, Jadon is offered the chance to redeem himself in the eyes of the world and his family. His new mission is to lead a Revolutionary Army and found Nueva Cordova, a Central American country from which no citizen will ever have to flee. Aided by Professor Luis Escárcega—Cordova's only hope for rebirth—and his daughter Penelope, Jadon is on the brink of success when a bullet threatens to destroy it all. Will Nueva Cordova become a reality?"We were impressed with THE WALL . . . a fascinating and sophisticated blend of socioeconomic and humanitarian issues . . . "— BestThrillers.com

Reviews

"We were impressed with The Wall . . . Using a fascinating and sophisticated blend of socioeconomic and humanitarian issues, author Tetsuo Ted Takashima gives readers much to think about within an otherwise entertaining action thriller." —Best Thrillers

"The Wall is a powerful story of nation-building and changing hearts and minds. It will prove an attractively absorbing saga for any thriller reader who likes politics embedded in the actions and changing purposes of leaders and followers. The close inspection of the roots and minds of refugees creates an added dimension of understanding not present in most other genre reads." —D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

". . . earnest mash-up of politics and espionage set in the near future . . ." —Publishers Weekly
