Matt Alacrán was not born. He was harvested.

His DNA came from El Patrón, lord of a country called Opium – a strip of poppy fields lying between the United States and what was once called Mexico. Most people hate and fear clones like Matt – except El Patrón. El Patrón loves Matt as he loves himself, because Matt is himself.

As Matt struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, including El Patrón’s power-hungry family, and realizes escape is his only chance to survive. But escape from the Alacrán Estate is no guarantee of freedom.
