As with McBain, Wambaugh and Clancy, Color of the Prism reflects a blending of fact and fiction into a journey of intrigue, love, betrayal, greed and tragedy in the police thriller set on the Arizona-Mexico border.Detective Antonio Castenada, backed by a crack team of federal and state law enforcement officials and the latest surveillance technology, attempts to bring down Reynaldo Guzman, a prominent businessman and drug kingpin. In masterminding the assassination of a treacherous business associate and his entire family, Guzman alienates his long-time mistress, Sara, who agrees to bring Castenada undercover into Guzman's legitimate produce and seafood import business. The complexity of the undercover investigation is increased as Antonio is torn between his love for his wife; his compassionate feeling for Sara; his loathing of Mary, Guzman's accountant, whose lust for him will stop at nothing; and last but not least, his unwanted sexual experience with a young Yaqui girl who has been given to him as a 'gift' by Reynaldo.The young detective's role as a police plant put his marriage, his career, and his life at risk as he and his support team scramble to out-maneuver Guzman and his deadly hired assassin, Julian Espino.Color of the Prism and its non-traditional ending illuminate the true world of crime and corruption unseen by most people. Indeed, it is the last color of the prism.
