Overview

Can Just One Dance Change Destiny? As Corvette Nightfire approaches the casino in Las Vegas, the doors burst open to the sound of gunfire. A beautiful woman rushes to him and thrusts a heavy bag into his arms. Instructing him in Spanish, which he doesn't understand, she runs past him to a waiting car. A professional poker player in town to play in the Final Nine in the World Series of Poker, Corvette soon discovers that he is inexorably connected to Valentina, this exotic woman who has just put his life into a tailspin. He disappears into an international vortex of intrigues, a complex world or ordinary heroes and heinous cartel thugs, in a desperate race to find and save her.
They cannot speak each other's languages, but on the romantic evening on which they meet, They can't speak each other's languages, but on the romantic evening on which they meet, Valentina shows Corvette her life through dance imagery. He sees her as an animal spirit, an amber-eyed black jaguar that comes to symbolize the woman he inexplicably loves. His heart reveals that the millions of dollars in prize money in the tournament mean nothing compared to Valentina's life. When she disappears, Corvette becomes both the hunter and the hunted as he desperately tries to find her while she is still alive. His journey takes him to an unexpected destiny, one that reconciles generations of family sins.
Corvette Nightfire, the second book in the mystery suspense series, The Z Redemption Trilogy, takes up where The Z Redemption leaves off and straps the reader into another bumpy, exhilarating ride! Some of the main characters of the first novel (David James, Ana Valdez, Enrique Santos, and President Donald Austin Blair, for example) continue in the second and work with new characters from the DEA and the drug cartels. Among novels set in Las Vegas and Mexico, Corvette Nightfire is certain to be a crime fiction best seller as well as to rank among the top fiction books for Kindle!

About the Author

While living in Mexico in 2009 and 2010, my young friend, Israel, was kidnapped, tortured, shot, and left in a vacant field in his home city of Monterrey by a drug cartel. The crime was inexplicable. Israel was a bright and handsome college student. The mistake that cost him his life was to meet the wrong person at a party: She was the estranged wife of a drug cartel leader in Monterrey, but she didn't tell Israel. Their flirtation put an end to his life and the dreams for him of all who loved him. Aware of the violence in Mexico, I tried to stay alert. After I came to make friends and saw that they courageously lived their lives in a world abundant with daily horrors and impunity, I realized how safely we lead lives in the United States. I learned that we know so little about how we contribute to problems in the country to the south of us.

Israel's murder began to haunt me a little more each day. I couldn't forget him. I spent two years researching and understanding the violence of organized crime, especially that of the drug cartels throughout Latin America and the United States. I found out that on the demand side, the people in the United States purchase the majority of drugs coming from the Mexican cartels. On the supply side, our country is the biggest supplier of illegal weapons used by these cartels. These weapons have been responsible for at least 100,000 deaths in Mexico in the past seven years. Even the casual marijuana enjoyed in social gatherings in our country arrives to us with a lot of blood on its leaves. We don't think about that at all.

The result of my time in Mexico is The Z Redemption and its sequel, Corvette Nightfire. I like to think that writing these novels has helped with my personal redemption.

As for my bio, I am a retired CPA who spent most of my career in the health care field. For twenty years I was the CFO and CEO of a Virginia hospital and nursing home in a large healthcare company. I wrote short stories as a young man, and at the College of William and Mary I really learned to write. I received my undergraduate degree in History there. Later in graduate school at Virginia Commonwealth University I got a post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting and then my Masters in Business Administration from the University of Dallas. I am a life-long lover of Corvettes, Las Vegas, and living on the edge. I am in love with my family, passionate about United States and Mexican history, the Spanish language, and using social media.
