"...for a virtual novel with a thriller pace,
The Mexican Operation is guaranteed exciting reading."

"Silva's novel follows the tradition of other activist novels,
most notably Harriet Beecher Stowe's
Uncle Tom's Cabin,
Helen Hunt Jackson's
Ramona, and Alex Haley's Roots,
works written to awaken public concern over injustice to
minorities."
  • A graphic story of the international exploitation of the Bracero Program
  • The “roots” of the out-of-control 21st Century illegal Mexican Immigration Problem
  • How it all started, based on the real-life experiences of the author and murder of his father
  • An engrossing story that is gut-wrenching and sometimes painful to read but difficult to put
    down once you've started reading it
The lives of six men—a ruthless Mafia hit man, a determined Portuguese taxi company owner, a
street-smart young man raised in orphanages and foster homes, a giant Negro field worker, a
humble Mexican campesino, and a rich cowboy movie start—are thrown together by fate in a
desolate desert town.

A “western” set in the 1950’s, complete with wild horses and good-guys and bad-guys and their
women, with a brutal, shocking tale to tell, this is a story of simple life on a desert river, of the
corruption that created the money that helped build early Las Vegas, of interracial culture and
prejudice, of the shameless abuses of legal and illegal Mexican immigrants, and of social tension in a
town and in a era that time and society have already forgotten about.

In his new book, Lee Silva breaks all of the traditional rules again by including a non-fiction
introduction with his fictional text, a non-fiction Epilogue, an Afterword expressing his thoughts on
the current illegal immigration problems with a mini history of the U.S. Border Patrol, and a bonus
photo section with 61 black and white photos (including some of himself as a teenage cowboy, taxi
driver, and “river rat” in 1950s Blythe, California.)
