I am excited to reveal the cover for my next novel, Ana Rocha: Shadows of Justice! This is a police/crime novel set in Houston in 1999. It follows the adventures of an undercover narcotics officer, Ana Rocha, as she takes on some of Houston’s biggest criminals. This novel was co-written by my good friend, Detective Glenda Mendoza. Although the work is purely fictional, Glenda’s law enforcement experiences were the inspiration for much of the story and helped ground it in reality.
The novel is releasing on February 28th, 2018 in both print and as an E-Book! Below is the premise of the novel:
Ana Rocha is a woman on fire. Being talented and from a well-off family, Ana could have become anything. But driven by her sister’s murder, Ana chose the path of an undercover narcotics officer. Ana has made a vow to help clean up the streets of Houston. The journey her duty takes her on forces her to confront her worst nightmares and face the city’s most ruthless criminals. The further she goes down this path, the more the line between her two lives begins to blur. And soon, this journey brings her face-to-face with a monster from her past.
