This novel deals with a young female police officer from Cuba who is trying to avenge her father's murder in the US. She takes a week's vacation from her day job, flies to Mexico and crosses the border as an illegal, wending her way to the wealthy enclave in Wyoming where her father's murder occurred. Almost immediately she becomes a day worker for the very same people she suspects of the crime. Believable? Nah.

More entertaining than reading the back of the cereal box in the morning but I regretted buying this hardcover book at about page 50.


  1. Couldn't disagree more. This was a great book. I've read your reviews for a little while now, and will no longer do so. You have the mean-streak of someone who's own writing has been rejected and is taking it out on those who can do it. Life's too short to deal with bitter people. '

  2. Mark, sorry you feel that way. I'm not a writer and have never submitted anything or been rejected. Just been reading for many years and have opinions.
