Development Pitch

Observe crime from the villans' point of view. Large scale smugglers along the USA-Canada border branch out running weapons to the Taliban and Al Qada. The CIA begins to take an interest in their activities which leads to a font of information - and a series of books: Nighthawk: African Ice; Nighthawk: Chief Hazel; and Nighthawk: The Deacon Lots of gun play. Espionage and intel gathering at work. FBI gets shot up in one battle. Primer on big time arms dealing.
