The return of the mercenary company, the Crimson Guard, could not have come at a worse time for a Malazan Empire exhausted by warfare and weakened by betrayals and rivalries. Indeed, there are those who wonder whether the Empress Laseen might not be losing her grip on power as she faces increasing unrest as conquered kingdoms and principalities sense freedom once more. Into the seething cauldron of Quon Tali--the Empire's heartland--marches the Guard. With their return comes the memory of the Empire--and yet all is not well with the Guard itself. Elements within its elite, the Avowed, have set their sights on far greater power. There are ancient entities who also seek to further their own arcane ends. And what of the swordsman called Traveller who, with his companion Ereko, has gone in search of a confrontation from which none have ever returned? As the Guard prepares to wage war, so Laseen's own generals and mages, the 'Old Hands', grow impatient at what they see as her mismanagement of the Empire. But could Laseen have outwitted them all? Could she be using the uprisings to draw out and finally eliminate these last irksome survivors from the days of her illustrious predecesor, Kellanved?

The premise of this work of fiction is that major Mexican drug traffickers can operate with impunity in Mexico enjoying the protection of the Mexican Government as they flood the United States with heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. The heroes of this work of fiction have likened the Mexican Government protection of drug traffickers to the protection the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong received from the governments of Cambodia and Laos during the Vietnamese War. As veterans of that war my heroes witnessed how these governments provided safe zones for the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong from the American Military and as Veteran DEA Special Agents can see how the same thing is happening in Mexico with major drug traffickers who have the financial means to buy off any government official. Using a Special Operations Team, originally assigned to Bolivia, to sneak into Mexico and do unilateral enforcement operations in Mexico my heroes not only hope to wreck havoc with the major traffickers but also hope to send a signal to those in the Mexican government who choose to protect these traffickers that they can not offer the traffickers a Safe Zone.
