StoryHe looked like just another day laborer from the streets, and the perfect fall gyt for a crooked political assassination. But he turned out to be Machete, a legendary ex-federale with a deadly attitude and the skills to match.
Left for dead after clashing with notorious mexican drug kingpin Torrez, Machete has escaped to Texas, looking to disappear and forget his tragic past. But what he finds is a web of corruption and deceit that leaves a bullet in Senator McLaughlin and Machete a wanted man.
Machete sets out to clear his name and expose a deep conspiracy. But standing in his way are Booth, a ruthless businessman with an endless payroll of killers; Von, a twisted border vigilante leading a small army; and Sartana Rivera, a beautiful immigrations officer torn between enforcing the law and doing what is right.
Helping Machete even the odds are Luz, a sexy taco-truck lady with a rebellious spirit and revolutionary heart; and Padre, a priest who's good with bleessings, but deadlier with guns.
