The Widow

But I know you want something to read NOW, so I have reduced the price of the eBooks of my Pride and Prejudice adaptations just until The Widow is released on August 5th. Pulse and Prejudice is only $2.99 and The Proud and the Prejudiced is half price at $1.49!

Now back to coming attractions...

Above I have a phote from a scene from the classic Hitchcock film Notorious, which is one of my favourite films of all time and is partly the inspiration for The Widow (or the second half at least); however, instead of Nazis, it is loosely based on the Sinaloa Cartel. My character “El Raton” is inspired by the notorious drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, whose daring escape from a maximum security prison last week has dominated headlines.

In this thrilling noir romantic suspense, after drug lord Ignacio “El Ratón” Martinez’s daring escape from a maximum security prison, DEA agent David Alvarez invested four years in deep undercover infiltrating the multimillion dollar money laundering operation of 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?

PLEASE NOTE: Contains strong language and intense sexual situations.
