Waking Up in Medellin isn’t your run-of-the-mill thriller, but a powerful story of conflicts that escalate swiftly. — Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite

"Waking Up in Medellin kept me guessing in a genre I’d never even thought about before: the corporate who-done-it. Nikki Garcia is an unlikely Sam Spade: a sexy traveling auditor who accepts no spread sheet at face value as she grapples with high level, mega-money corruption, and her own ghosts. Kathryn Lane has crafted a savvy, engaging character and placed her in fast paced thriller with an edge-of-your-seat finish, and managed at the same time to introduce me to two new worlds: the labyrinthine back room treachery of international business, and the exotic tropical atmosphere of contemporary post-Pablo Escobar Colombia. Did I mention there’s a love story? Or is it a story of heartless manipulation?" — Dr. Cliff Hudder, Texas Institute of Letters member and author of Pretty Enough for You and Splinterville
"There are so many good guys, bad guys, and many that can go either way that the story moves at lighten speed toward an explosive finish. Ironically, encapsulated within the story, are tidbits of fact and interest that are stories within the story and amazingly they add more spice than seems possible, almost as a breather from the ever-building suspense. Grisham comes to mind, a great story accompanied by teaching another culture, as a comparison to this tale." — Robert Selby, screenplay writer, book reviewer, and volunteer at Killer NashvilleInternational Mystery Writers’ Conference
