There is no peace for Camaro Espinoza. Less than a year after her brush with death at the hands of a murderous criminal, she is called to action once more. Faith Glazer, an accountant in Miami, has a stalker. She has no idea how to stop him when the police won’t intervene, and she has no skills to defend herself if he decides to take things to the next level. She wants Camaro’s help, but Camaro wants nothing to do with it.
What Camaro doesn’t know is that the stalker is out there, but his motivations are far more complicated than they seem. What follows drags Camaro into a mire of violence fueled by dirty money, and rooted in the infamous “cocaine cowboys” days of the city. With Faith to protect, and only homicide detective Ignacio Montellano as an ally, Camaro will have to bring every ounce of her strength to bear. To make them sorry.
It may not be enough.
“Tightly plotted…the action-packed narrative derives its real power from the complex character of Camaro, whose toughness and bad attitude make Jack Reacher look like a choir boy.” — Booklist
“An all-round badass!” — Publishers Weekly
“Impossible not to root for.” — Owen Laukkanen
“Hard-boiled action. Tougher than an army boot. Deeply satisfying.” ― Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
“Sam Hawken may have struck crime series gold. [This] heroine has got the freshness, charisma, and layers to backbone not just one great novel, but an ongoing series.” ― Mystery Scene
“A complex and compelling protagonist (coupled with richly defined secondary characters), authenticity of voice and vista, and resonant timeliness. Camaro Espinoza is a name to remember, and readers will find themselves rooting for her despite the many liberties she takes with conventional law and order. Justice is in the eye of the beholder, after all.” ― John Valeri, The Strand Magazine
“[Camaro] comes across in style as a female Jack Reacher. A winner for a wide crime fiction audience.” ― Jack Batten, Toronto Star
“A protagonist that’ll light up the literary seascape unlike anything before.” ― Craig Johnson, bestselling author of the Walt Longmire mysteries, the basis for Netflix’s Longmire
