Mack MacCullen is a bit of an Irish wiseass. His half Apache – half Mexican partner Vick Moraga is a more serious man. Both are well trained killers. Scott “Mack” MacCullen and Victorio “Vick” Moraga grew up together in southern Arizona. They joined the Marine Corps together and became scout snipers. After serving their country they tried various law enforcement positions – Cochise County deputies, U.S. Border Patrol officers, Pima County deputies, and Tucson Police officers. They didn’t seem to fit so they became private investigators. After chasing missing persons, divorce cases and bounty hunting they stumbled into a major case of drug cartel money laundering with the use of diamonds. The case and their connections with the Mexican government’s Secretariat of the Interior led them into conflicts with drug cartels, mafia, Russian mob and various U.S. government agencies. Mack and Vick surrounded themselves with former marines who shared the same personality traits. They had all “seen the elephant” – been in combat – and believed in good over evil. They were convinced America was at war and that the military and various agencies had hands tied behind their backs by politicians and the legal system. No one was effective in dealing with terrorists, criminals and others intent on destroying our way of life. They played by their own rules since our enemies followed no laws. Enemies attack us and when captured the U.S. gives them all the rights and privileges of citizens. To Mack and Vick this was just flat wrong. So collectedly they became a positive force for America and the criminals’ worst enemy.
