Angeles County sheriff ’s deputy Charlie Hood is attached to the ATF,
working undercover on the iron river that flows across the U.S.-Mexican
border. The diamond fillings he wears in his left canine glimmer,
distracting the men who sell the illegal firearms that enable the
unspeakable violence on both sides of the map. Spotting the sparkle when
