Description

Bold, brash, and beautiful, Kay Hamilton is not your average DEA agent - she's as infuriating as she is irresistible. Having recently moved to San Diego after a case in Miami brought her more notoriety than medals, Kay once again finds herself embroiled in an international bust. Tito Olivera, younger brother of drug czar Caesar Olivera, is within her grasp. If she takes down Tito, Kay is positive that Caesar will follow - and when Caesar falls, so does the largest and most vicious drug cartel in Mexico. But when a mysterious stranger shows up on her doorstep, all of Kay's carefully laid plans are thrown out the window. The Olivera case suddenly becomes far more personal - not to mention dangerous - and Kay must be willing to sacrifice everything to get her man. Rosarito Beach is an explosive, action-packed thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seats until the final moments of the epic conclusion.

Praise for Rosarito Beach

'M. A. Lawson's Rosarito Beach grabs you by the throat ten seconds after you've settled into your easy chair for a read. The writing's lyrical, the plot is breathtaking, and the characters, the good ones and bad, are utterly compelling and, most important, thoroughly believable. And then there's Agent Hamilton. I fell for her on the first page.' Jeffery Deaver

'If you haven't read M. A. Lawson, start right now with Rosarito Beach ! I loved this riveting thriller, which launches a new star in crime fiction, the tough-minded and tough-talking DEA agent Kay Hamilton, a renegade who welcomes risk and doesn't play well with others. She handles ruthless drug cartels, crooked cops, and government politics with guts and attitude, but nothing prepares her to take on her greatest risk yet - one involving the human heart.' Lisa Scottoline

'I love tough guys, even when they're gals, and Glock-toting, fast-thinking, wise-cracking DEA agent Kay Hamilton is one of the toughest going. She looks to be a source of major amusements as M. A. Lawson spins out this new series over the next decade or so.' Stephen Hunter
