Squeeze by Hiram Davis is a romantic adventure that simmers with suspense and intensity. Cooper Landry has a propensity to overthink situations that cause misinterpretation, which ended his romantic relationship. To heal his wounds from the breakup, he accepts a job from a man named Jeral Orin. The job requires him to go to Central America to work as a consultant for a gold mining company. On his way to this assignment, he is abducted and imprisoned by a drug cartel. Evidence of Americans imprisoned by a cartel is the only thing the United States needs to take prompt action. Quinn Daltrey, a federal agent (Cooper’s ex-girlfriend) tries to find him. She hopes to fix things even if she has no concrete plan.
Squeeze is absorbing in its details, persuasive in its characters, and intelligent in its prose. Hiram Davis's eloquence in the pages takes off with a good lift. The tension is tight and the relationship between Cooper and Quinn is well-explored, which becomes an important aspect in shaping the events of the storyline. Cooper, Quinn, and the villain Ortega are everything that the story demands. Quinn’s character is doubly interesting because she breaks the mold of the female character who needs saving. Rather, she is the savior. The novel’s abduction story is intriguing. It provides sufficient details on the nature of drug cartel operations and their motives. Squeeze truly grabbed my interest from start to finish, and I found it riveting. You will have sympathy for its heroes and be understanding of its villains. Highly recommended.
