TERROISTS ARE HERE – NOW! One hundred have crossed the Mexican border to attack us where we live and work with random bombs, fires, sniper attacks and more. Two nuclear bombs also crossed the border with ease.
Newly elected President Janet Sampson’s administration is unprepared to defend the country from a plague of individually minor attacks that reach into every corner of the United States, leaving no one safe.
Grant Meredith once again confronts the Sanchez family, GateKeepers of the Mexican border. This criminal dynasty that straddles the border may be the only hope to stop the terrorists, if they can be stopped.
Merriman weaves a page turning thriller with the real world political consequences of a foreign policy that seeks to impose democracy on the “axis of evil” at the point of a gun.

GateKeepers is a fast paced tale about one man's quest to find a killer-and a Mexican dynasty that could make him pay with his life.
Grant Meredith's peaceful life on a ranch near Durango, Colorado is violently disrupted when he learns that his brother has been mysteriously gunned down on the streets of Scottsdale, Arizona. In his grief, Grant becomes determined to find the people responsible for his brother's death. His search for the killer leads him to the GateKeepers, a Mexican family dynasty that has straddled the U.S./Mexican border since the time of Pancho Villa.
The border is almost meaningless to the GateKeepers who are the political power brokers in Mexico, controlling the Mexican military and police with a steady stream of bribes. With tenacles reaching deep into both Mexico and the United States, the GateKeepers capitalize on NAFTA and the need for trade with Mexico to smuggle people and drugs into the United States with impunity.
As the founder of BlackRock, a new breed of military contractor spawned by the end of the Cold War, Grant is not without resources to challenge the menacing GateKeepers. However, as he attempts to bring his brother's killer to justice, he quickly learns that the price of failure may simply be too great.
