This author tells a great story!
Cliff Diver is a well written mystery with vivid characters, lots of action, intense suspense, and lots of plot twists. This modern detective story is set in Acapulco, Mexico. The protagonist is junior detective Emilia Cruz who is the first female detective in Acapulco. Narration by Johanna Parker is outstanding. I enjoyed and I highly recommend this suspense mystery!

Excellent, so glad I stumbled over this series!
Any additional comments?
Excellently written, I could really empathise with the characters and having lived in South America I really felt the horrid machismo and the impotence of the victim(s)
Like the heroine and will be buying the other books to see how the story and characters develop.
Recommended if you like cozy and not so cozy crime. (This is of the not so cozy variety although Acapulco feels a bit like a small micro cosmos of a town in this book)
Cannot wait to listen to the next one.
Narrated by the wonderful Ms Parker, whom I love to listen to.
Apart from a few mispronunciations (yes they do really bug me so I took a star off, petty I know!) She is great as usual, and I really like her accent for this ...
Would it have worked better with a native speaker? Perhaps.. but I just like my JP fix! ;)
So, buy it, you will not regret it!
