Digging up the past can be deadly.
After years of running from her ex - a vicious Mexican drug lord - and his subsequent death, Kate Jones is ready to bury the past and try to piece together a new normal. But first there's a loose end to tie and it involves digging up old ghosts that are best left alone.
Unaware her actions have attracted the notice of a powerful enemy Kate is plunged into a deadly fight for survival, as both her life and the lives of the children of a man she once loved hang in the balance. And, with the possibility of an informant inside the DEA, she doesn't know who she can trust.
From the emerald green shores of Seattle to the lush Yucatan jungle and unforgiving Sonoran desert, Kate Jones must once again face her past... and hope she survives.

I loved the unexpected turns and Kate's quirky way of looking at and describing things. I like it's all written in her voice, and I like that it is always on the move. Very engaging.
Again, I don't want to spoil things, but Kate's reunion(s) with Sam satisfied the romantic in me. There are a bunch of other fun scenes, skydiving and battles.
Her voice is well suited to Kate's character. I think Kate would sound like her. Does the narrator change the story? That's a hard question. It's always difficult to compare reading to listening. She did a great job, if she did more it probably would have been distracting.
This is a fun, sometimes funny, tense, fast-paced thriller. I think it's not meant to be moving. But it is a great escape, a fun world to inhabit for 5-plus hours. That feat can move me to tears if I'm doing laundry.
Great descriptions, Kate has a strong character and she always stays in character.
