I absolutely loved this fast paced action thriller. When Elise Bennett and her boyfriend fail to return after a night out in Tijuana for Spring break, Leine Basso catches the case to find her. But with few leads and closed mouth witnesses, not to mention a police force that is trying to quell the disappearance of the two American teenagers, Leine has to go to the scene of the crime to find out what happened, which leads to her stirring up a hornets nest but uncovering a plot for payback that goes deeper than even she could imagine.
Far from reserved Leine Basso is my new literary heroine, she’s resourceful, determine and very entertaining to read. I have read more than my fair share of thrillers but have yet to come across many female protagonists that really do kick ass like she does and mostly single-handed. I have not read other books in the series and found getting into this one easy. The theme of organ and human trafficking rang true and was very plausible.
A really exciting heroine for action thriller fans everywhere, but a long overdue tough and plausible literary role-model for women.
