Emilia dives into an ocean of secrets, lies, and murder when she investigates the death of a dirty cop in the explosive start to the Detective Emilia Cruz police series.
Her own lieutenant is found dead aboard a boat adrift near an exclusive hotel’s marina. She’s appointed to lead the investigation, which quickly becomes a political game between Acapulco’s ambitious mayor, the wily head of the police union, and Emilia’s bitter co-workers.
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.
“Consistently exciting . . . A clever Mexican detective tale that will leave readers eager for the series’ next installment.” – Kirkus Reviews
