Waking to find herself on the dirt floor of a corrugated steel building, Kate Jones grabs her backpack full of money intent on finding her way back to the United States. Unfortunately, a Mexican drug lord named Salazar is just as intent on finding her, retrieving his stolen money, and making her pay for ever having left him. Is there anyone she can trust?
DV Berkom’s Bad Spirits is a fast paced action packed novella which reads like a nonstop high octane movie. Each chapter moves at breakneck speed. The heroine, Kate, barely has time to take a breather before finding herself in another impossible situation and back on the run.
While there was the occasional deus ex machina moment, I didn’t care. I finished it in one sitting and felt exhausted when I did! This was a fun read and I look forward to more from Berkom.
