Marnia Gonzalez is the daughter of the ex-President of Mexico. After she is kidnapped and brutally assaulted by cartel criminals and rescued by the legendary Hero of Cozumel, Commander Jacob Edwards of the U.S. Coast Guard, Marnia makes a decision that will change her life and those of all the people she loves. In The Cartel Crusher by Dan E Hendrickson, Marnia eschews her pampered and privileged lifestyle to serve in the Mexican military, and to risk her life chasing down and destroying the criminal cartels that ruin the lives of everyday Mexicans and have their tentacles in every level of Mexican society. Marnia joins the Anti-Cartel Task Force and is soon recognised for her intelligence and her ability to defeat the most cunning of cartel leaders. The beautiful, yet deadly Marnia is the number one target of the criminals at home in Mexico, but even more so by the absolute elite of criminals who form part of a secret society that rules the world. Her life and her family’s lives are in danger, but she is determined to end the cartels’ relentless power and hold over her people.
One of the real pleasures of being an “indie” book reviewer is being able to watch new and exciting authors emerge and develop as they hone their craft and tighten their narratives. The Cartel Crusher by Dan E Hendrickson is the second book in this series and, having read the first effort, I am thrilled and stunned by the development of this author over the two books. This book is an out and out thriller, with a touch of sweet romance thrown into the mix. I found it “un-put-downable” and read it in virtually a single sitting. Many of the characters I met in the first book reappear, albeit briefly, in this story, but it stands perfectly well as a stand-alone novel in its own right. The author does a magnificent job at refreshing the backstory for those of us who read the first book and introducing it to new readers. The author’s sentence structure and plot coherency have improved markedly between books and he deserves real credit for this. This second book left me intrigued and dying to know where the series will lead us in the third book of the trilogy. If you love action/adventure with real life relevance then you will love The Cartel Crusher – I certainly did.
