Summary
"A master of historical and crime fiction, James Carlos Blake, in The Ways of Wolfe, delves back into the dark realms of the Wolfe family, a clan whose roots run deep on both sides of the United States-Mexico border, and whose prevailing interests straddle both sides of the law. Although the heir apparent to govern his Texas family's esteemed law firm--and its "shade trade" criminal enterprises--college student Axel Prince Wolfe joins his best friend, Billy, and a Mexican stranger in a high-end robbery that goes wrong. Abandoned by his partners, he is captured and imprisoned, his family disgraced, his wife absconded, his infant daughter Jessie left an orphan. Two decades later, with eleven years still to serve, Axel has long since exhausted his desire for revenge against the partners who deserted him. All he wants now is to see the woman his daughter has become, despite her lifelong refusal to acknowledge him. When the chance comes to escape in the company of Cacho, a young Mexican inmate with ties to a major cartel, Axel takes it, barely surviving a massive manhunt down the rapids of the Rio Grande and into a desert inferno. But with his chance to see Jessie now within reach, a startling discovery re-ignites an old passion and sends him headlong toward reckonings many years in the making. Racing across desolate landscapes from West Texas to the Gulf of Mexico, The Ways of Wolfe is a novel of one man's fateful struggle with his own abiding love and reckless spirit"--
