Nikki García, former international fraud auditor turned private investigator, is assigned to Mexico—a country where private eyes are outlawed—to find a missing child, Bibi Lombardi. Bibi’s parents have been fighting over custody and suspect each other of kidnapping the child.
It promises to be an easy case until an irreverent, pot-smoking bag lady provides an eye-witness account of the girl’s abduction. Nikki dives into danger as she follows a group of treacherous human traffickers—“coyotes”—through abandoned silver mines and barren deserts as the criminals transport their victims toward the U.S. border.
To complicate matters, Nikki’s fiancé, Eduardo Duarte, fears for her life if she continues her search and he starts his own dangerous, high-stakes rescue mission.
Will he locate Nikki and Bibi before it’s too late?

Originally from Mexico, Kathryn was a painter in oils but quickly changed to accounting and international finance after she discovered the artistic path of painting leads to a starving artist existence. To cement her ability to earn a living, she became a CPA and a CMA and worked for a multinational corporation where she traveled extensively for two decades. After jetting to over 90 countries, her travels gave her the opportunity to fulfill another passion – to write fiction. Now she writes fiction inspired by Latin American cultures she experienced firsthand during her career as an international finance executive.
