To March Into Hell
~ Book 1 in the Gas Lamp Trilogy ~
by Ron Parham
Jake Delgado—hard-drinking, maverick private investigator—is finally getting
his life in order with his new partner, Amos Stillwater. He's cut down on his drinking and even
falls for a local bartender in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego. But his comfortable life is
turned upside down when he receives news that his older brother, Freddie, has been found living
in Tijuana and is in trouble. Jake is lured down to Tijuana to find him, not knowing that Raza,
also known as El Matador (the killer)—the main hit man for the Tijuana drug cartel and
who just got out of prison—is waiting.
Two years earlier, Jake killed a terrorist, Angel Rojas, to save the life of three kidnapped teenage
girls. Raza is Angel's brother and he will do anything to avenge Angel's death. Jake is drawn into
the underbelly of Tijuana and, along with his partner and a few friends, fights for his life and the
lives of his friends against Raza. It takes every last ounce of Jake's strength and courage to march
into the hell of Baja California, knowing that he may never walk back out alive.
Praise for To March Into Hell
"To March Into Hell is a fast-paced runaway of a novel that never fails to surprise, shock and amaze
the reader. With memorable, well-developed characters, both of the good and evil variety, Parham
reprises his maverick private investigator Jake Delgado from past novels. As a sequel to his first
novel, Molly's Moon, To March Into Hell plunks Delgado smack dab into the foul heart
of the worst that Tijuana, Mexico, has to offer. It is powerful, tension-packed fiction, exactly
what we've come to expect from Parham, a master of the action-thriller genre. Another five-star
performance from a great storyteller."
