For Fans Of
The debut of the Detective Emilia Cruz series set in Acapulco pits the first female police detective in town against cartels and corruption.
Emilia is unexpectedly assigned to investigate the murder of her own lieutenant. He was as corrupt as only a Mexican cop can be and she soon uncovers his sordid sexual past as well as his role in a kidnapping double-cross and counterfeit money scheme. Soon another cop becomes her prime suspect.
Feeling like one of Acapulco’s famous cliff divers hoping not to crash on the rocks below, Emilia must choose between truth and survival. But no matter what choice she makes, she won’t be ready for the shock of the water . . . and neither will you.
