What if the deadliest assassin in all of Mexico, a man with dozens of kills to his name, was actually a vacuum repairman in Arizona? Falcon City, Arizona. Jacques Ramirez works at Robotop, the leading home appliance company in the Southwest United States. Jacques is efficient, thorough, and discreet. That last one is easy: he's also mute. But everything changes when two members of one of Paso del Rio's largest drug cartels stumble upon Jacques and believe him to be the deadly hitman who betrayed them in the past: the ruthless Ramirez. Could it be that the cartel's legendary clean-up man is really a legendary vacuum cleaner expert? NICOLAS PETRIMAUX presents the first in a trilogy—a tribute to the action thrillers of the 1980s and '90s, a brutal narrative with never a dull moment. GUNNING FOR RAMIREZ is as much a descendant of Friedkin's To Live and Die in L.A. as it is Tarantino's Pulp Fiction or Rodriguez's Mexico Trilogy.
