Book Review: Blood’s Echo by Isabella Maldonado


Blood’s Echo (Veranda Cruz #1)


Blood’s Echo by Isabella Maldonado
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another crime drama with a female lead. Let’s say Isabella Maldonado knows what she is talking about. This time it’s the Phoenix PD up against the Villalobos Cartel based in Mexico. The story gets intense and there is some language and violence depicted so this won’t be everybody’s cup of tea. This is the 5th book from the author that I have read and it definitely doesn’t disappoint. But it turns out this was her first and she won the Mariposa Award for best first novel.

Phoenix detective Veranda Cruz is dead set on taking down the Villalobos crime family, but the ruthlessness of her quarry demands a ruthless edge of her own.

No one in the department suspects the real motivation behind the obsession that pits her against Bartolo Villalobos, heir apparent to a powerful criminal empire…until an operation goes horribly wrong.

Targeted by an increasingly unstable foe, Veranda must protect her family and navigate adversaries within the force while she sets a trap for Bartolo. As the action heats up, Veranda and her new Homicide team—along with an arson investigator who kindles a flame of his own—are all drawn into a deadly gambit.

Taking down Bartolo is the ultimate goal, but is Veranda ready to trade her life for justice?
