Publisher's Summary

She was a dangerous man's lover - now she's his dangerous enemy.
For Kate Jones, being on the run from her former lover - the vicious leader of a Mexican drug cartel - was never going to be easy. But with a new identity, a new lover, and a new life in Arizona, she was beginning to believe she'd made it through the worst.
Then, in an act of twisted revenge, Kate is kidnapped and imprisoned by her deadly enemy, his intention to force her to pay back the money she stole before he kills her.
Fate intervenes and she finds herself working against the cartels deep in the Yucatan with a group of off-the-grid commandos.
From peaceful northern Arizona to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Kate Jones must decide for herself if she'll continue to run - or turn and fight the evil that pursues her.

Great heart-racing thriller

Would you listen to Yucatan Dead again? Why?

Yes! Because I loved it. When I listen to audio books, I'm often doing other things and miss nuances. So when I find a book like this one, with an unusual plot, intriguing characters, and a different writer's voice, I enjoy listening a second or third time to pick up on things I missed the first time.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Yucatan Dead?

So I don't include a spoiler, I'll just say, Kate's transformation. I also liked the author's descriptions, and Kate's quirky personality.

Which scene was your favorite?

This is a pretty nonstop read, so there's a lot to choose from, but I enjoyed Kate's water escape. It was scary in more ways than one.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Against all odds, Kate Jones stands and fights.

Any additional comments?

I love the twists and turns the plot makes. The book is full of memorable characters that are fun to root for. It's also an unusual mix of humor and tension, ala, Pulp Fiction or Fargo though not as farcical.

Another great Kate Jones!

Fun story. Really liked Quinn and the commandos and how Kate played off of them. Realistic setting. Like the narrator's voice throughout all the books. Where's the next one?
