Caribbean Fire

Buy Caribbean Fire

Vacation is a magical word to all of us, even for workaholic FBI Special Agent Manny Williams. It was finally time to take a break from the BAU and profiling psychotic killers, and Manny was ready. His five-month-old son, Ian, was in good hands with his daughter and mother-in-law so why not? Manny and wife Chloe were going to get away for a few days, far away, and enjoy the honeymoon that had never been theirs.

Nothing fit that prospect like Cozumel, Mexico and one of its exclusive resorts. Hot sun, warm sand, teal waters, margaritas, and his wife in a bikini were just what the doctor, and his boss, Josh Corner, had ordered.

But destiny, and a persistent Mexican Government Police Inspector, had other plans.

A crazed killer performing sacrificial murders in the tradition of ancient Mayan priests was turning the sleepy island upside down. The multiple murders pressed Manny and his crew into a maddening race against time, forcing him to choose between family and the lives of kidnapped victims.

Who will survive?
