Once the top leader of the Sur del Calle cartel, Colombia’s largest drug trafficking organization, Pablo Sanchez has declared revenge against Blake Barnett, the FBI agent who’d killed his twin brother over a decade ago.

After one failed attempt forced him to flee the United States, Pablo has a bold new plan and he’s even more determined to kill Blake and his fiancĂ©e, Whitney Steel.

From Las Vegas to the militant infected jungles of Bogota, Blake has no choice but to risk his life and infiltrate the cartel’s inner world and eliminate the ruthless drug lord.

Retribution (Whitney Steel, #2)My Review
Retribution by Kim Cresswell

A man who caused so much loss in both her life and that of her fiancĂ©, ex-FBI agent, Blake Barnett has had his sentence read for his evil crimes and Whitney is there, live with her cameraman to capture the moment. Little did she know she would, within seconds, become the kidnap victim of a drug cartel overlord on a mission to avenge his twin brother’s death at the hands of Blake. What better way than to take the woman he has planned a future with? Little did he know, he was trying to capture a well-trained, deadly foe who can take care of herself, mostly. The chase is on, from Las Vegas to central America, by land, air and water, with only a few stops in between to unload the bodies of the objects of Whitney’s wrath, but still she can’t get free and can only hope Blake will find her in time.

Pablo Sanchez has these two playing right into his bloodstained hands and a man on death row is loving the pain Blake is enduring with just a little too much glee as he bargains for his life. Can Blake trust a man with nothing to lose? Will Blake be able to decipher the whereabouts of Pablo before he tortures and kills Whitney? These two have so much to live for, but the odds are they won’t get the chance.

Hang on to your shorts! We are going along for the ride with Whitney as a captive! Joining in on Blake won’t be a picnic, either, but trust me, keep your eyes on Whitney! Looking for a tough, yet feminine heroine who keeps her cool and uses her brain as her number one weapon? How about a real man who admits his worries and fears while still having undying faith in the woman he loves?

Kim Cresswell has done it, again! Ms. Cresswell can write action, adventure, mystery and intrigue with the best of them. Using bold strokes and realistic scenarios, Ms. Cresswell takes us along on a chilling ride, being held by the minions of evil and in fear for our safety. Yep, her writing feels that real. Looking for some grown up reading that will keep you on pins and needles? The Whitney Steel Series is a perfect fit!

I received an ARC edition from Kim Cresswell in exchange for my honest review.
