Quentin Abbot is a contractor with thriving construction business and a loving relationship with Wendy Thompson, who also serves as his accountant. When he is called to the tiny border town of Terwilliger, he thinks he will be gone only "a couple of days." However, after taking control of his father's vast business conglomerate on a whim, he finds himself thrust into a new and heady world of fast, easy and devious profits and the almost limitless power that accompanies vast wealth.

When he discovers evidence of corruption in the company, he rationalizes it as just "the border way." When he becomes aware of a sinister crime syndicate, headquartered in Mexico, known as "Las Familia," he dismisses it as not relevant to the operation under the benign control of his company, Westeco Corporation. He recognizes his own corruption only after it threatens his relationship with the lovely and lovable Wendy, his character. and his very life.

Redemption will mean financial ruin. The beautiful Babette Chardon urges him to share with her a luxurious life of wealth and political power. He has to make hard choices which will affect, not only his own life, but the lives of thousands of others.
