Payback in Panama

by Noel Hynd
Thomas Nelson Publishers

After two attempts on her life, Alex is faced with the ultimate decision . . . kill or be killed. U.S. Treasury Agent Alexandra LaDuca is at a crossroads. Her job is beating her up, emotionally and psychologically. And the moral battle between her faith and her responsibilities is taking its toll on her effectiveness. For the first time, she wonders how long she can last. Forcing an end to her long-running and treacherous duel with the heads of the Dosi Cartel, Alex knows this is her last do-or-die operation. It's time call in all the favors owed to her. Her fight takes her into the criminal underground of America's east coast, south into the violent underworld of Central America, across Honduras and El Salvador, and finally to Panama for a shattering confrontation. Alex's career, her life, and her future with the man she loves---a future she never expected after the violent death of her fiance two years earlier---are all at stake. After a final payback in Panama, nothing will be the same . . . if she even survives.

My Review:

I am going to admit that while I love watching crime dramas, I don't particularly have a taste for reading them. Thankfully, Hynd writes a heck of a thriller that kept me at the edge of my seat the whole way through! I didn't sleep while reading this fascinating work, and I read it in one sitting. It is one of those books that takes you for a ride, and you remain in a haze and stupor with all the ups and down of the story. I never realized how much reading affects my everyday life, but when I forgot I had to work because I was reading, that was a quick reality check! This book draws you into the story, the characters, and the setting as you traipse all over creation with Alex while she fights for her life. Well worth the read for the unique twists and turns, drama, plot, and intrigue. 

This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.
