Matt is a clone of El Patron, a powerful drug lord of the land
of Opium, which is located between the United States and Mexico.
For six years, he has lived in a tiny cottage in the poppy fields
with Celia, a kind and deeply religious servant woman who is
charged with his care and safety. He knows little about his
existence until he is discovered by a group of children playing in

destroyed at birth, the evil inhabitants of El Patron's empire
consider him a "beast" and an "eejit." When El Patron dies at the

Celia and Tam Lin, his devoted bodyguard who wants to right his own
wrongs. After a near misadventure in his escape, Matt makes his way
back home and begins to rid the country of its evils.
