Publisher: Laurel & Croton
Formats: ebook, paperback, audiobook
Acapulco’s award-winning female police detective is back, desperately searching for two people who don’t want to be found.
Detective Emilia Cruz has serious problems.
Her new lieutenant is a drunk. Her new partner is a surly ex-boxer who refuses to work with women. Her new romance with hotel manager Kurt Rucker is already on the rocks.
When a restaurant explosion interrupts their date, Emilia and Kurt barely escape a fiery death, along with Acapulco’s popular mayor. Never one to let a good crisis go to waste, the mayor insists she was the target of an assassination attempt. Support for the mayor turns into extreme protests that shut down the city.
Emilia is under intense pressure to find the arsonist even as her personal problems pile up. Yet she can’t refuse a plea to look for a missing girl from her own neighborhood. When the two hunts converge, fire will be the least of her problems.
