Back Cover Blurb:


Once the top leader of the Sur del Calle cartel, Colombia’s largest drug trafficking organization, Pablo Sanchez has declared revenge against Blake Barnett, the FBI agent who’d killed his twin brother over a decade ago.

After one failed attempt forced him to flee the United States, Pablo has a bold new plan and he’s even more determined to kill Blake and his fiancée, Whitney Steel.

From Las Vegas to the militant infected jungles of Bogota, Blake has no choice but to risk his life and infiltrate the cartel’s inner world and eliminate the ruthless drug lord.

But the price of failure is higher than ever as he’s forced to use the woman he loves as a pawn in a deadly game—where the events of the past and present collide.

My Review:

Cresswell has done it again! She’s created a fantastically unique novel that will keep you on pins and needles throughout. Her writing is impeccable yet quite inviting. It keeps you fully immersed in the fast paced & suspenseful tale at hand. Cresswell combines action and danger with all the best of a political thriller giving readers of all walks something to enjoy. Cresswell cleverly sets up her novel so that new readers can join the series here with little trouble, while at the same time not bogging down returning readers with details that they already know.

Whitney is such a fantastic heroine. I love how she can take care of herself, usually. She is by no means a weak character, yet still knows she can’t do everything alone. She’s a real person, not some budding superhero, which allows readers to connect with her on multiple levels.

This is a fantastic novel written by an adult for adults. Cresswell combines action with suspense, mystery with reality in such a manner that you will find yourself lost within the pages of this book, travelling alongside the characters.
