He was a tall and slender man in his early thirties with a bitter hunger in his face. There was a strength about him that the tailored jacket couldn't conceal or soften, and a readiness about him that clashed with the expensive car and the hand-sawn luggage.

Ex-convict Ric Durazo was a man on a mission - well chosen for the job of saving someone's life, even if it cost him his own.

A Ticket to Hell is a fast-paced noir ride through the cheap motels and desert canyons of New Mexico.
