Publisher Description

The second book in the Wolfe family series following The Rules of Wolfe

‘Passionate, bloody and yet incredibly romantic, it is a tribute to the genius of its author’ – Daily Mail

On a rainy winter night in Mexico City, a ten-member wedding party is kidnapped in front of the groom’s family mansion. The perpetrator is a small-time gangster named El Galán, who wants nothing more than to make his crew part of a major cartel and hopes that this crime will be his big break.

The only captive not related to either the bride or the groom is the young Jessica Juliet Wolfe, a bridesmaid and close friend of the bride. Jessie hails from a family of notorious outlaws that has branches on both sides of the border, and when the Wolfes learn of Jessie’s abduction, they fear that the kidnappers will kill the captives after receiving the ransom and desperately try to find her before it’s too late.

Gritty and exhilarating, James Carlos Blake’s The House of Wolfe takes readers on a wild ride from Mexico City’s opulent neighborhoods to its frenetic downtown streets and feral shantytowns, as El Galán proves how dangerous it is to underestimate an ambitious criminal.


'Blake has an unerring sense of control, and - though Elmore Leonard and Cormac McCarthy are lurking in the book's DNA - a distinctive voice to boot... a pungent and exhilarating read' - Financial Times

'An absorbing look at dire poverty, depravity and the all-too-successful business of kidnapping for profit' - Kirkus Reviews
