Fifty Grand: Adrian McKinty

Despite warnings from her brother, and perhaps against her own better judgment, Cuban cop Mercado has herself smuggled to the US to uncover the truth behind the hit-and-run death of her defector father. Working undercover as a maid in a Colorado resort, where the local police are bribed to ignore illegal immigrants, she infiltrates the world of Hollywood stars and celebrity Scientologists who use the town as a playground – some of whom, she suspects, may be behind her father’s untimely demise.

A staccato-styled stand-alone novel from the author of the Forsythe and Lighthouse trilogies.
