From the extraordinary Colombian French politician and activist Ingrid Betancourt, a stunning debut novel about freedom and fate Set against the backdrop of Argentina’s Dirty War and infused with magical realism, The Blue Line is a breathtaking story of love and betrayal by one of the world’s most renowned writers and activists. Ingrid Betancourt, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Even Silence Has an End, draws on history and personal experience in this deeply felt portrait of a woman coming of age as her country falls deeper and deeper into chaos. Buenos Aires, the 1970s. Julia inherits from her grandmother a gift, precious and burdensome. Sometimes visions appear before her eyes, mysterious and terrible apparitions from the future, seen from the perspective of others. From the age of five, Julia must intervene to prevent horrific events. In fact, as her grandmother tells her, it is her duty to do so—otherwise she will lose her gift. At fifteen, Julia falls in love with Theo, a handsome revolutionary four years her senior. Their lives are turned upside down when Juan Perón, the former president and military dictator, returns to Argentina. Confronted by the realities of military dictatorship, Julia and Theo become Montoneros sympathizers and radical idealists, equally fascinated by Jesus Christ and Che Guevara. Captured by death squadrons, they somehow manage to escape. . . . In this remarkable novel, Betancourt, an activist who spent more than six years held hostage by the FARC in the depths of Colombian jungle, returns to many of the themes of Even Silence Has an End. The Blue Line is a story centered on the consequences of oppression, collective subservience, and individual courage, and, most of all, the notion that belief in the future of humanity is an act of faith most beautiful and deserving. From the Hardcover edition.

Butch Dixon has been taken for a ride … Not a jump in the car, see the sights kind of ride. He's been taken for everything he has. He's lost his house, his restaurant business, his savings, his car, his best friend, his faith—all to his conniving ex-wife. But that was seven years ago. He picked himself up, left Chicago, and started over in Peoria, Arizona, running the Roundhouse Bar and Grill. He doesn't look back on those bad years; there's no point. Not until two curious cops show up at the Roundhouse. Faith, Butch's ex-wife, has been murdered, and the evidence points to him. Stunned, Butch quickly realizes that the black-hearted woman is going to ruin him again, from her grave. Lucky for Butch, the Old Blue Line, a group of retired—but still sharp and tenacious—former legal and law enforcement coots, have taken it upon themselves, as a favor, to make sure he doesn't cross that thin line. After the dust settles, Butch's life is again upended—when a little red-haired ball of fire, Sheriff Joanna Brady, takes a seat at his bar.

Chaos reigns in the streets of Tallahassee, and the community doesn't trust the police. The reason: police officers Beau Rivers and Dylan Akers are suspected in the recent murders of two child killers although it cannot be proved. Leading the turmoil is a dangerous kingpin building a drug empire with violence and fear. The Chief of Police must act, but traditional police work isn't getting results. Additional evidence proving Rivers and Akers committed the revenge murders is discovered, and the chief delivers a tough ultimatum. The two must wage a hidden war against the kingpin or face murder charges. Working together again, Beau and Dylan are joined by two others, one a tenacious cop and the other with questionable morals, to form a secret squad known only by the chief. As they square up against the drug lord, it quickly becomes a race against time. Major Pritchard, the unscrupulous IA commander who investigated Beau and Dylan, continues his personal crusade against the pair. Will Beau and Dylan take down the syndicate before Pritchard finds the uncovered evidence held by the Chief? Will they finally face the consequences for taking the law into their own hands? To make things right, they will have to cross the blue line, and it could cost one of them his life.
