A Monumental International Crime Thriller That Brad Thor Calls ""The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" meets "The Sopranos.""
Enemies Are Everywhere
When Sophie Brinkmann--nurse, widow, single mother--meets Hector Guzman, her life is uneventful. She likes his quiet charm and easy smile; she likes the way he welcomes her into his family. She quickly learns, though, that his smooth facade masks something much more sinister.
Guzman is the head of a powerful international crime ring with a reach into drugs and weapons that extends from Europe to South America. His interests are under siege by a ruthless German syndicate who will stop at nothing to stake their claim. But the Guzmans are fighters and will go to war to protect what's rightfully theirs. The conflict quickly escalates to become a deadly turf war between the rival organizations that includes an itinerant arms dealer, a deeply disturbed detective, a vicious hit man, and a wily police chief. Sophie, too, is unwittingly caught in the middle. She must summon everything within her to navigate this intricate web of moral ambiguity, deadly obsession, and craven gamesmanship.
"The Andalucian Friend" is a powerhouse of a novel--turbo-charged, action-packed, highly sophisticated, and epic in scope--and announces Alexander Soderberg as the most exciting new voice in thrillers in a generation.
