Meet 2 powerful South American drug patrons Antonio Espinoza and Javier Rodriguez, their families, business and hunger for women and power. The story begins with a love affair for a young woman, Marta Peña, in Costa Careyes, Mexico in 1969 and moves on during the next 3 decennia. In a sweeping family saga, you’ll get to know family secrets, children killing their parents, women striving for their own rights and position among these corrupt and mighty men. The Cartel has some intriguing twists to keep your attention. In the end family loyalty is all that counts, despite all costs. Antonio, the pater familias ultimately brings everyone and everything together, as he did in the past. Though the conversations and phrases are kept simple, I really enjoyed reading this saga.
