Review by Dandelion

She was a dangerous man’s lover…now she’s his dangerous enemy.

YUCATAN DEAD…

For Kate Jones, being on the run from her former lover–the vicious leader of a Mexican drug cartel–was never going to be easy. But with a new identity, a new lover, and a new life in Arizona, she was beginning to believe she’d made it through the worst.

Then, in an act of twisted revenge, Kate’s kidnapped and imprisoned by her deadly enemy, his intention to force her to pay back the money she stole before he kills her.

Fate intervenes and she finds herself working against the cartels deep in the Yucatan with a group of off-the-grid commandos. From peaceful northern Arizona to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Kate Jones must decide for herself if she’ll continue to run…

…or turn and fight the evil that pursues her.

Wow!  My heart is still pounding.  When I started reading this story I didn’t realize that I would be on the edge of my seat during the entire book. I just couldn’t put this book down.

This story is one of a series about a woman named Kate Jones.  From the first page, when she was kidnapped in Arizona, to later on when she managed to escape into the jungle of Yucatan, my heart was racing. This story keeps you torn between stopping for a moment to catch your breath and wanting to know what happened next.

Unknown to Kate, she had met and dated for a couple of years a man who was the head of a Mexican Cartel. He was a vicious killer, and when she realized who he was, she fled. Since that time he has hunted her down, killing anyone who attempted to help her.

In the Jungle she met a group of men who were determined to rid the country of these cartel leaders. Having no other choice, she joined them.

I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I’ll  only  say that this was a exciting, frightening, wonderful, awful story, and I loved every page of it.. I know that it is a series, and I now have to find all the others so I can read them. If you like mysteries and exciting adventure stories, this is for you.

  1. Wow–thank you for the fantastic review, Dandelion! I’m excited that you enjoyed Kate’s latest adventure 🙂 She’s a fun character to write. I’m closing in on the end of the next book in the series, A One Way Ticket to Dead, which should be available soon. In this latest installment, Kate’s in over her head once again and up against her old nemesis, Vincent Anaya.
    Take care,
