    Review of Pacific Reaper.
    Since I read in advance I am not sure where to post.
    As always Emilia, colleagues, relatives , boyfriend and enemies had me enthralled beginning to end. I was drawn into Emilias passion to discover the truth about the broad spectrum Acapulco crimes being investigated. Confusion challenges relationships, religious beliefs, and her whole future…..problems that loom threateningly in her future. I will be reassured to find Emilia rise like a Phoenix from the wrath of The Pacific Reaper. I lost sleep over the authors skillful weaving of a thrilling story including many difficult issues.
