Welcome to Kim Cresswell & #newbook : Retribution #thriller #romance #MFRWorg


THE WAR HAS JUST BEGUN…

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.

Kim, as a lover of thrillers, your blurb has already grabbed me by the throat.

It is a daunting task to take readers on a death-defying ride through the pages of a story and it seems you have found the way to do it and make people happy to be frightened :)
