The sequel to ‘The Wall.’

A professional contract killer tries to assassinate Alex in Mexico City, and he has no idea who might have ordered the hit–because there is a large pool of suspects. A notorious womanizer, Alex is a well-known T.V. star in romantic soap operas recently cast in a blockbuster Hollywood film with a dark side unbeknownst to his adoring fans: he is also a soldier of fortune and debt collector in the seedy Mexican underworld.

Since he cannot run to the authorities and risk exposing his secret life and harming his career, and fears more attempts on his life, he enlists the help of his best friend and business partner, Thomas Bertram, to aid him in searching for the elusive mastermind.

The quest takes the two ex-Marine buddies to the dangerous Rocinha favela in Rio de Janeiro, the glitzy upper echelons of high society in Paris, the dark alleys of the Gothic quarter in Barcelona, the glamorous Hollywood studios in L.A., the vibrant streets and nightclubs of Miami, and the quaint, artistic city of Asheville nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

As they close in on the person or persons pulling the strings, Thomas and Alex realize they have stumbled onto something more treacherous than they could have imagined. And as their hunt for the truth leads them relentlessly to the highest levels of power and to uncovering the most clandestine of secrets within the hallowed halls of the U.S. government, Thomas and Alex are determined to expose the shadowy people behind the assassination attempts and make them pay with their lives if necessary.

The Wall

A Multicultural Action Thriller

Thomas Bertram is an American living in San Salvador with his fiancée Cecilia. They own a popular neighborhood restaurant and plan to wed soon. Thomas’s dream is to obtain a resident visa for Cecilia and return to the United States.

Domingo Jimenez and his wife Blanca own a small repair shop across the street. Domingo’s dream is to move to America as well so that his young daughter Nancy can grow up speaking English and having a good education and a better life than he and Blanca had.

When armed gang members invade their neighborhood to demand “protection” money and threaten them with death if they don’t pay, Thomas and Domingo’s dreams for the future take on a new perspective. They decide to flee the country with their families through Guatemala and Mexico to seek asylum in the United States.

But their journey is more challenging than expected, and they face a myriad of difficulties and must overcome multiple obstacles that put not only their dreams but their lives at risk.
