Cover Reveal - THE WIDOW "Classic Noir at its best!"

I am so excited to reveal the cover to my new novel, the romantic noir thriller The Widow! What do you think?  It will be released on August 5th, but it will be available for pre-sale on July 22nd.

Plus a week after its release, I will be at Authors After Dark in Atlanta and signing beautiful hardback editions on Saturday the 15th! This is the beautiful creation of the talented Dawné Dominique of Dusk til Dawn Designs, whom I now consider my own personal cover artist!

“When truth is buried underground it grows, it chokes, it gathers such an explosive force that on the day it bursts out, it blows up everything with it.” – Émile Zola, J’accuse

In this thrilling romantic noir suspense, DEA agent David Alvarez invested four years in deep undercover infiltrating the ruthless Sonora Drug Cartel only to have his primary target gunned down by a rival gang. Now his only hope in salvaging the operation and bringing the largest drug trafficker in the world to justice lies with the man’s beautiful, young widow Catherine, whom he cannot bring himself to trust.
Drowning in wine and despair, Catherine would do anything to break free from the clutches of the cartel; but despite her desperate efforts, she can never escape the mistakes of her past that continue to haunt her.
Even though he cannot deny their mystical, mutual attraction, David must carry out his orders – from both the DEA and the Cartel – catching Catherine in a spider web of duplicity and deceit.  How far will David go to bring down the cartel? If he succeeds in winning the widow’s trust, would he be willing to risk her life – or his heart?
Advance Praise:
"A gripping novel of love and betrayal. The story is full of angst within their relationship, keeping you on the edge of your seat each time you turn a page." – Rach Lawrence Books
“A noir thriller as hard-boiled as anything written by Hammett or Chandler. Saucier writes with the force of a gunshot.” – Jack Caldwell, author of the CRESCENT CITY novels BOURBON STREET NIGHTS and ELYSIAN DREAMS.
"A non-stop thrill ride. I enjoyed the intelligent writing and the fast paced action. The relationship between David and Catherine as fellow rivals turned to each other for mutually beneficial reasons is well done and adds great depth to the story line. I was unable to stop reading this book until it was done."  - Lori Reed
"This is a must read! I love the way the writer made me feel like I was there. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happened next." - Sue Wallace
