Mexico. Money. Murder.
Kate Jones is on the run with a backpack full of money, intent on finding her way back to the United States from Mexico. Unfortunately, a ruthless 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?
Originally published as a serial chronicling Kate Jones’ race through Mexico, BAD SPIRITS is a fast-paced, action-packed novella. Just when you think Kate’s escaped one impossible dilemma, she’s thrown into another perilous situation. Can she survive long enough to make it out alive?
As a stereotypical guy, I usually don’t enjoy, or read much of, fiction that has a female as the main character – mainly because I can’t relate to them. However, D.V. Berkom is one good storyteller and I am looking forward to reading the continuing saga of Kate Jones.” ~ Michael Gallagher, Amazon Hall of Fame and Top 50 Reviewer, and Vine Voice
“I don’t think Berkom’s books are good for me. They’re way too heart-pounding and action-packed: there’s no sitting back and relaxing while you read her books. It’s edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-your-mouth writing.
Captivating and attention-grabbing from the start, this short story is a mouth-watering appetiser to the following books in this thriller series, which I’ll most certainly be reading. Once I’ve caught my breath, of course.” ~ Cath ‘n’ Kindle Book Reviews
“With stellar action, a flawed heroine to remember, and wonderfully tight writing, Bad Spirits is a great find. Berkom’s Kate Jones is tough and complex, and her misadventures had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish…it’s a nonstop thrill ride as Kate tries to figure out the good guys from the bad and find some safe haven from the Bad Spirits on her heels… I’m looking forward to the next in the series!” ~ Jen Blood,bestselling author of the Erin Solomon Mysteries
“This is action packed – a thrill a page – and you will not be disappointed! Set in Mexico, a young lady escapes from a drug lord. You had better believe that she will be hunted down by them..Will she make it? Will anyone help her or is she in it by herself for the long haul?? CIA, DEA involvement??? Oh, did I mention she stole a ton of money when she escaped??? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!” ~ A Navy Vet…VT Town, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
