For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD's Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter -- but what was the motive of the masked men? Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn't going to put the brakes on the merger. All it's accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

Description:

Imagine if you were the first and only female police detective in Acapulco. The detective squadroom reeks of machismo. It's just a matter of time before they squeeze you out. Detective Emilia Cruz fought her way up the police ladder in Acapulco, where Mexican drug cartels battle for control and politicians are bought with blood money. The lieutenant was forced to accept her in the detectives squadroom, but that doesn't mean she can stay. Every day is a battle for Emilia, especially when any charges against him will dirty her as well. But when the lieutenant's body is found in a boat adrift near a luxury beach hotel, Emilia is picked to lead the murder investigation. The odds are soon stacked against her. The head of the police union wants to direct the case from behind the scenes. The ambitious mayor of Acapulco offers political favors in return for a cover up. The other detectives plot against her. Thanks to local hotel manager Kurt Rucker, Emilia uncovers the lieutenant's sordid sexual past and his role in a kidnapping and extortion scheme. A little more digging and a rival detective becomes Emilia's prime murder suspect. But do family secrets point in a different direction? 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 which 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 "A wonderful crime mystery that keeps you fast flipping to the last page to see what's coming next. Of course I picked up the second book right after reading the first - after all, I wanted to see what happened with Emilia and Kurt, and where would she go after her first main adventure in Acapulco." -- MysterySequels.com Get all the DETECTIVE EMILIA CRUZ books: Cliff Diver Hat Dance Diablo Nights King Peso Pacific Reaper 43 Missing Made in Acapulco MEET DETECTIVE EMILIA CRUZ Emilia Cruz is the first and only female police detective in Acapulco. She's a good liar, a fast thinker, and a mean kickboxer in a squadroom that didn't want her and is still trying to break her. Even as she fights to get what she's earned as a cop, Emilia keeps a record of women who have gone missing--casualties of Mexico's drug violence--and is always searching for Las Perdidas, the Lost Ones. The one thing Emilia doesn't know how to handle is gringo Kurt Rucker, the manager of a luxury hotel in Acapulco. A former US Marine, he has the confidence and leadership qualities she admires. A triathlete, he's calm under pressure and knows what he wants. But does Emilia? THE TWO FACES OF ACAPULCO There's the Acapulco that tourists know; the sweep of the most beautiful bay in the world, the majesty of the clear blue Pacific, candlelit nights on the beach, and luxury hi-rises. There's also the Acapulco that is a prize to be fought over by drug cartels--the city that is home to hookers and thieves, the streets where life is cheap and poverty is as pervasive as the wind off the ocean. Both of these versions of Acapulco claw at each other and force Emilia to survive between them.

Description:

Jeff Resnick hardly knew his well-heeled half-brother. But after suffering a fractured skull in a vicious mugging, he reluctantly accepts the fact that he has a long and brutal recovery to face -- and his closest of kin can provide him with the time and place to do it. Now, Jeff is haunted by unexplained visions of a heinous crime -- a banker, stalked, killed, and eviscerated like a ten-point buck. When Matt Sumner's murder is discovered, a still-recovering Jeff realizes this was what he had seen. Jeff must not only convince himself of his new-found psychic ability, but also his skeptical brother Richard Alpert. Since Sumner was Richard's banker, both brothers have a stake in finding out what happened. With Richard's reluctant help, Jeff's investigation leads him to Sumner's belligerent family and hard-nosed business associates, none of whom want him snooping around. When Jeff discovers a second victim, he knows he must relentlessly chase his quarry even if it means risking his brother's life.
