Murder In Miami: A Book Review

About The Book:

Alex LaDuca travels to Miami to continue her investigations into the murder-and-money laundering activities of the Dosi cartel, an intrigue set in motion in Hostage in Havana. Sent there by the U.S. Treasury Department to speak with a recent Cuban defector, she soon realizes this key player may be no help at all. A vast global money laundering scheme fueled by cocaine profits. A man who promises to put Alex “in touch with the deceased.” A lethal trap by the Dosi cartel. A handsome actor back in New York who suggests that love and romance may soon return to Alex’s life … Alex attempts to navigate a Miami underworld that encompasses elements of the surreal and supernatural. But can Alex emerge from this world with her life---and her faith---intact? Can she get past the painful tragedy of her past and discover God’s plan for her future? Readers of general market thrillers, such as Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy will eagerly anticipate this second installment.

About The Author:

Noel Hynd has sold more than four million copies of his books throughout the world, including The Enemy Within and Flowers From Berlin; His most recent novel, Hostage in Havana, is the first book in the Cuban Trilogy starring Alexandria LaDuca; Hynd lives in Culver City, California.

My Review:

I am a huge fan of the literary genre of Thriller/Crime, but over the years have switched to the Christian versions of this genre, as it still has the thrill without the gore. Author Noel Hynd has a fantastic series in The Cuban Triology and the second book, Murder in Miami, has definitely lived up to my expectations. The book is very fast paced, with excellent writing, twist and turns galore, and very engaging characters. Though the book covers the issue of the drug cartel, it is dealt with sensitivity, without the use of profanity and gore. Also the romance aspect is also written in a way that is sensitive to the Christian audience reading the book. The book will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the book. I look forward to the third book of the series when it releases.

I highly recommend this book, and give it a huge thumbs up!
