The first installment in M.A. Lawson's thrilling Kay Hamilton series

"This riveting thriller... launches a new star in crime fiction, the tough-minded and tough-talking DEA Agent Kay Hamilton."—New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline

Bold, brash, and beautiful, DEA agent Kay Hamilton doesn’t always like to play by the rules, even though she’s charged with upholding them. Having recently been transferred to San Diego after a case in Miami brought her more notoriety than medals, Kay once again finds herself embroiled in an international bust.

Tito Olivera, younger brother of drug czar Caesar Olivera, is within her grasp. If she takes down Tito, Kay is positive that Caesar will follow—and when Caesar falls, so does the largest and most vicious cartel in Mexico.

But when a mysterious stranger shows up on her doorstep, the Olivera case suddenly becomes far more personal—and far more dangerous. Now, Kay must decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to get her man.

Baker & Taylor
Moving to San Diego in the aftermath of a notorious case in Miami, brash DEA agent Kay Hamilton is unwittingly embroiled in a personally wrenching, international sting involving the younger brother of Mexico's most brutal drug lord.

This is a fun series. Rosario Beach was hard to get into but is necessary to "know" the character Kay. It is entirely fiction but like James Bond or any of Lee Child's books, it's satisfying to have the bad guys pay the price. Read them in order. This could be turned into a fun movie like the Marvel comics have.

This is the second novel by M A Lawson that I have tried -- the first sample made me consider not trying any additional, but I am glad that I did go ahead and check out this novel. There is no question that some of the plot was a bit far-fetched, but it is after all a work of fiction! Fast paced, and even the stretches were entertaining to see how the ideas would work out. I have to say, I will continue to read additional by Lawson -- this one made up for my view of The Inside Ring.

good plot
but really is it necessary to kill that many people??
maybe try Lawson again later

I was spoiled with the DeMarco series which I enjoyed and perhaps I was expecting too much from his latest character introduction. The book was just "okay" and I most likely will take a pass on the forthcoming publications.
