The discovery that her father had left an illegitimate son in Mexico, and that the young man had died crossing the American border as an illegal immigrant, came as a profound shock to Annie Meredith, safe in the Welsh stone house where she was born. Driven more bv instinct than reason, she travelled to * J Texas to see Cristobal buried; to find out about his life and death. Immediately, she found herself embroiled in border politics: the desperate efforts of poor Mexicans to go north for work; the losing battle fought by the US Border Patrol to turn them back; the unscrupulous men who would kill for the money to be made from the human traffic. Not only illegals made the difficult and dangerous journey north. Drugs passed that way. So too did treasures from Mexicos glorious past - treasures such as the Mason Codex.
