Paco is regional DEA (U. S. Drug Enforcement Agency)

Galveston and Corpus Christi are cities in Texas

G. Blanco is a Columbian drug lord


this series takes place back in the day (70's)

Ch. 5: Jackson Calls Rebecca


Jackson lands on a dirt strip

outside of Galveston, checks in with Paco,

drives to Corpus for a little R & R—

a little seafood and company.


The difference between the good guys

and the bad guys are the rules—

bad guys break them. Jackson bends them,

letting his presence be known


by having a drink with someone he shouldn't,

someone he once knew, whose smile

and laughter stuck with him.

It's a dangerous game, he can't afford a mistake—


Griselda Blanco doesn't play by the rules.

This may be a mistake.
