Book DescriptionA RIDE TO HELL AND BACK
Don't let the nostalgic title Sentimental Me fool you. This fast paced travel mystery is a true gem. It takes Boston lawyer, Charles Stone to Aqua Prieta, Mexico to see why a slain U.S. Border Agent made a woman, with known Drug Cartel connections, the beneficiary of his $500,000 life insurance policy. Stone was often called in by the Franklin Life Insurance Company to investigate what they referred to as "exotic cases". He had recently returned from an assignment in Ireland involving the Real IRA and a notorious international arms dealer. Exposing fraudulent activity almost cost him his life. Needing a little R&R, he accepted the retainer and hoped the trip to Arizona and the Mexican border city would not be as dangerous, but nothing Franklin Life assigned him had ever been a "piece of cake". This investigative journey, rich in descriptive side events, introduces the reader to murder, drugs, arms smuggling and the powerful people who make it all happen.
Review: Violence, drugs, fraud and so much more are the tune of this book. This book has leaps and turns and twists that keep you turning the page. For me, however, I wished it would have stayed focused on the mystery and adventure. When two women wanting Stone gets thrown into the mix, as much as I like a good romantic aspect in my books, I thought it messed up the story. I wasn't reading this one for romance or crushes.
