Crossers by Philip Caputo

In Crossers, Gil Castle is an investment banker who loses his wife in the 9/11 attacks. Unable to live in his large Connecticut home by himself, Gil takes early retirement, sells the house, and moves to a two-room cabin on a cattle ranch in southern Arizona. The ranch has been in Gil's family since his grandfather's time. The ranch is also on the Mexican border and is part of the corridor, not just for illegal immigrants, but drug runners too. Instead of finding peace, Gil finds he's increasingly being pulled into a violent world. He also discovers his grandfather's story and the violent legacy he left behind. Philip Caputo's novel has received positive reviews with the Washington Post saying, "In lesser hands, Crossers might have been a mess, but Caputo is such a careful researcher and nimble writer, so unafraid of cultural and narrative complexities, that he manages to deliver an enthralling and thoughtful novel about our southern border."
