Publisher's Summary

Imagine if you were the first and only female police detective in Acapulco, investigating crime in a city both breathtaking and deadly. Mexican drug cartels battle for control, and politicians are bought with blood money.

The detective squad room reeks of machismo. The lieutenant is a dirty cop who has trapped you into silence.

Unexpectedly put in charge of the investigation when her lieutenant is found dead, Emilia Cruz uncovers the lieutenant's sordid sexual past as well as his involvement in a kidnapping and counterfeit money scheme.

Reputations are threatened by her discoveries, and truth is for sale. Emilia becomes a pawn in an ugly game of checkmate and corruption played by Acapulco's ambitious mayor and the powerful police union.

Rival police detectives take aim at Emilia's investigation. Their ringleader is a prime suspect. Hotel manager Kurt Rucker has some helpful advice for Emilia, but the heat between them is too hot to handle.

Feeling like one of Acapulco's famous cliff divers hoping not to crash on the rocks below, Emilia must choose between truth and survival. But no matter which choice, she won't be ready for the shock of the water.

And neither will you.

    "This author tells a great story!"

    Cliff Diver is a well written mystery with vivid characters, lots of action, intense suspense, and lots of plot twists. This modern detective story is set in Acapulco, Mexico. The protagonist is junior detective Emilia Cruz who is the first female detective in Acapulco. Narration by Johanna Parker is outstanding. I enjoyed and I highly recommend this suspense mystery!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Cliff Diver to be better than the print version?

    No.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The sense of place and the location descriptions. The author obviously knows her setting very well.


    What aspect of Johanna Parker’s performance might you have changed?

    more feeling for the story and character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    The book could have done with more editing because there were bits that lagged. The novel could have been a little shorter to make it more impactful.
