Summary
José Treviño was raised in Nuevo Laredo, a Mexican border town and major smuggling gateway. He loved the sprawling countryside and its tough, fast quarter horses, but in search of opportunity he crossed the border into Texas. While José built a modest living laying bricks, his younger brother Miguel ascended to the top of the infamously bloody Las Zetas cartel. As José settled down with a wife and kids, his brother was said to be burning rivals alive, eating victims' hearts and launching grenades at the US consulate. Then one day Jos ̌showed up at a quarter-horse auction and bid close to a million dollars for a horse. The bricklayer suddenly became a major player on the scene, catching the attention of FBI agent Scott Lawson. Lawson enlisted Tyler Graham, the young American rancher breeding José's champion horse to infiltrate what he suspected was a major money laundering operation
