Isabella Mumphrey can’t leave a puzzle alone. This time she attempts to use her anthropology knowledge to uncover who is stealing priceless artifacts from an Aztec Temple in Mexico City. The discovery will certainly prove her worth to the World Intelligence Agency.
Tino Costantine is in Mexico City, too. He has infiltrated a drug lord’s organization to find enough evidence to not only prove the man’s illegal activities, but to bring him down for numerous deaths. Namely those of Tino’s family.
But when the love of his life, Isabella, strolls into his enemy’s home, Tino’s challenged by the choice of saving her or fulfilling his revenge.
Now for a taste...
Felix’s “cousin” was the man who tried to steal her energy bar earlier in the day. Recognition flit across his face as she stood and walked to the desk.
What to do? The clerk had offered his cousin’s services with good faith. The cousin had come through from the look of the bag dangling from his hand.
She reached for the bag, took it, and considered the contents while trying to decide how to handle the predicament.
The young man shuffled his feet as Felix’s expression changed from eager to please to staring hard at his cousin.
“Alphonso, have you and this lady met before?” Felix asked in Spanish, his voice dropping an octave and accusing.
They carried on a short exchange, obviously, believing she couldn’t understand them. But she knew enough of the language to understand Alphonso was letting the family down by hanging out with the Bohu gang. It sounded like the other person who had been with Alphonso had put him up to trying to take her money, only with all the pockets on her vest, he’d gone for the one that looked like it might hold a wallet.
She cleared her throat and both men looked at her as if she’d committed a cardinal sin.
“I hate to interrupt this family discussion but how much do I owe you for the food?” The Velcro on the inside right pocket ripped as she pulled out a handful of coins.
Paty will be awarding a $5 Amazon egift card at each blog for every twenty people who leave a comment and a $25 Amazon card to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
