This is the start of a highly entertaining thriller series that I think will do really well commercially. Is that a negative comment? Quite the opposite! The book is pure fun!
What it reminded me of was watching an episode of Burn Notice. Fast action, plots within plots, fun characters, lots of government agencies. Kay Hamilton works for the DEA and had some spectacular success in Miami. Now in California, she's on the trail of the brother of the biggest drug boss in Mexico. Capturing him is actually the easy part. What comes next is the REAL problem.
As her past comes back to haunt her in ways she could never have guessed, plots are put in motion that are just fun to watch unfold. Don't get me wrong. It's not a humorous book. It's just entertaining and fun.
Rosarito Beach is set for release in January 2014. I'll be watching for more in this series!
I received this through Goodreads FirstReads and this is my honest review of the book.
