Nikki Garcia, former international fraud auditor turned private investigator is assigned to a job in Mexico—a country where private eyes are outlawed—to find a missing child, Bibi Lombardi. Bibi’s parents have been fighting over custody and suspect each other of kidnapping the child. It promises to be an easy case until an irreverent, pot-smoking, bag lady provides an eye-witness account of the girl’s abduction.
Nikki dives into danger as she joins a group of treacherous human traffickers, or “coyotes”, and follows them through abandoned silver mines and barren deserts while the criminals transport their victims toward the U.S. border.
To complicate matters, Nikki’s fiancé fears for her life if she continues her search and he starts his own dangerous, high-stakes rescue mission.
A reviewer wrote, “The action is so fast-paced readers never has a chance to catch their breath until the very end. Nikki is engaging and realistic, and I loved following right alongside her throughout the action. With bad people working on several sides, it is hard to figure out how this story is going to end until the actual end. Clues are given, but the plot keeps twisting and turning so readers will have to wait until the last chapter to know for sure who the bad guy is.”
