She was a dangerous man’s lover…now she’s his dangerous enemy.
For Kate Jones, being on the run from her former lover—the vicious leader of a Mexican drug cartel—was never going to be easy. But with a new identity, a new lover, and a new life in Arizona, she was beginning to believe she’d made it through the worst.
Fate intervenes and she finds herself working against the cartels deep in the Yucatan with a group of off-the-grid commandos. From peaceful northern Arizona to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Kate Jones must decide for herself if she’ll continue to run…
…or turn and fight the evil that pursues her.
…an unrelenting thriller of a tension-filled novel. Yucatan Dead is the stuff of which block-buster movies are made…very highly recommended…” ~ Midwest Book Review
“…What makes DV Berkom’s novels tick is her extraordinary blend of intensity of a mystery thriller with the hefty sensuality and erotica she paints so well…” ~ Grady Harp, Top 100 & Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer
“…Yucatan Dead is a gripping thriller with a gutsy heroine and a tightly woven plot; it will no doubt please Berkom’s current fans and gather more.” ~ Pacific Book Review
“…I enjoy books with kick-ass female protagonists and Kate Jones fits the bill perfectly. When the going gets tough, she keeps going. Yucatan Dead ratchets up the tension from the start as Kate deals with hit women, warring Mexican drug cartels, and unofficial paramilitary organizations. Survival is never a given…” ~ BigAl’s Books and Pals
“…Kate faces off with her nemesis and his ruthless henchmen… In fabulous Kate style and bravado, she risks it all to stand up to her tormentors. Love, love, loved it!” ~ Night Owl Reviews
“Hang onto your hats, folks, this book is an adrenaline rush from first page to last!… I wasn’t sure what to expect with this, especially since it’s part of a series — but no worries, it stands alone just fine. And honestly, once you start reading, you’re not going to care much about anything but catching your breath…” ~ It’s Raining Books
“What an adrenaline rush – there are drug cartels, assassins, drug lords, killings, war, shootings, kidnapping, running through the jungle trying to escape…Well written story. Well written characters…” Suspense Author
“Wow! My heart is still pounding. When I started reading this story I didn’t realize that I would be on the edge of my seat during the entire book. I just couldn’t put this book down…” ~ Long and Short Reviews
“I can’t say enough good things about this book…It has a strong, determined and amazingly courageous heroine, an evil, powerful villain (or two) and a cast of characters who are utterly unique and interesting and each one is necessary to the story … only don’t get too attached. Not everyone will survive this crazy ride.” ~ Straight From the Library
“…The characters are well drawn and realistic. Kate is a great character, a strong woman who made an incredibly bad choice at a young age, as many young women do. The prevalence of drug cartels, kidnapping and human trafficking in Mexico is at a fevered pitch and this book presents it well. I highly recommend this book to readers who like fast moving, intriguing stories.” ~ Amazon Reviewer
“…Do yourself a favor: pour an ice-cold margarita, and curl up in the shade with Kate’s latest adventure. Wait; make it a pitcher. You’re gonna be there a while…this one is not letting go until the very end…” ~Ruth M. Ross, Reviewer

You do not have to read the other Kate Jones books to read this one. If you are looking for a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, this is it!” ~Amazon Reviewer
