When an Hispanic woman's son dies of a drug overdose provided by a Mexican drug lord, she becomes a federal agent and joins the U.S. Border Patrol on a personal mission to exact her revenge. Being a woman in a man's world of law enforcement is challenging enough, but confronting the powerful drug lord for the redemption of her son unleashes the one thing far worse than risking her own life - the Truth.
From the highly acclaimed novelist Carolyn Wilkerson comes Hasta Mañana, a fast-paced thriller that dives into the world of the American Southwest and illegal immigrants, a journey of one mother's quest for justice in a place where no one is who they seem and danger is everywhere. Wilkerson's authentic portrayal of the life of a Border Patrol Agent is inspired by her son's experiences while serving as a federal agent at the U.S./Mexico border in Arizona.
In Hasta Manna, Carolyn Wilkerson's first novel, Miriam Valencia seeks vengeance for her 16-year-old son's death from a drug overdose, but fate throws her more than one curve after she crosses the Mexican border. Fans of Southwest regionals will find much to savor.
