King Peso is Book 4 in the Detective Emillia Cruz Mysteries series by Carmen Amato. All four novels have been rock solid 5 star suspense mystery/thrillers. The novels are set in crime infested city of Acapulco Mexico, but the author is from the US. In King Peso the wife of Emillia's partner is murdered and her partner is arrested. There is a lot going on in this novel both in terms of crime and Emillia's personal life. Johanna Parker does a nice job of narrating.
For comparison purposes the Detective Emillia Cruz Mysteries series reminds me somewhat of the Detective Erika Foster series by Robert Byrendza despite the facts that Cruz is much younger than foster and she is far lower in rank. Their drives and methods are similar.
