The Alvarez Journal


Author: Rex Burns

Detective Gabriel Wager of the Denver Police Department investigates the Rare Things Import Shop because of a tip that it was a front for marijuana smugglers who were supposedly smuggling the weed in at the rate of five-hundred to a thousand pounds a week. Alvarez was professional--and slippery. And Wager, working with a new partner, Detective Denby, wasn't finding that very easy, either.
