Tito Olivera, younger brother of drug czar Caesar Olivera, is within her grasp. If she takes down Tito, Kay is positive that Caesar will follow—and when Caesar falls, so does the largest and most vicious cartel in Mexico. But when a mysterious stranger shows up on her doorstep, all of Kay’s carefully laid plans are thrown out the window. The Olivera case suddenly becomes far more personal—not to mention dangerous—and Kay must be willing to sacrifice everything to get her man.

“If you haven’t read M.A. Lawson, start right now with ROSARITO BEACH!  I loved this riveting thriller, which launches a new star in crime fiction, the tough-minded and tough-talking DEA Agent Kay Hamilton, a renegade who welcomes risk and does’t play well with others.  She handles ruthless drug cartels, crooked cops, and government politics with guts and attitude, but nothing prepares her to take on her greatest risk yet – one involving the human heart.”   —  Lisa Scottoline

“M. A. Lawson’s Rosarito Beach grabs you by the throat ten seconds after you’ve settled into your easy chair for a read. The writing’s lyrical, the plot is breathtaking, and the characters, the good ones and bad, are utterly compelling and, most important, thoroughly believable. And then there’s Agent Hamilton. I fell for her on the first page.”— Jeffery Deaver

For her first mission, Kay is told only a few facts: that the U.S. government wants Sahid Khan, a provincial Afghan governor, to become the nation’s next president, and that Kay’s job is to get close to Khan’s daughter Ara—a Western-educated former party girl—who is her father’s key political advisor. But then things go horribly wrong at a clandestine meeting in Afghanistan and Kay emerges at the center of an international plot that makes her question those she loves, those she works for, and her own faith in justice.
