“When truth is buried underground it grows, it chokes, it gathers
such an explosive force that on the day it bursts out, it blows up
everything with it.” – Émile Zola, J’accuse
In this thrilling romantic noir
suspense, DEA agent David Alvarez invested four years in deep undercover
infiltrating the ruthless Sonora Drug Cartel only to have his primary

operation and bringing the largest drug trafficker in the world to
justice lies with the man’s beautiful, young widow Catherine, whom he
cannot bring himself to trust.
Catherine would do anything to break
free from the clutches of the cartel, but despite her desperate efforts,
she can never escape the mistakes of her past that continue to haunt
Even though he cannot deny their
mystical, mutual attraction, David must carry out his orders – from both
the DEA and the Cartel – catching Catherine in a spider web of
duplicity and deceit. How far will David go to bring down the cartel?
If he succeeds in winning the widow’s trust, would he be willing to risk
her life – or his heart?
