Noel Hynd in his new book, “Payback In Panama book coverPayback In Panama” Book Three in The Cuban Trilogy series published by Zondervan takes us back into the life of Alexandra LaDuca as her investigation ultimately takes her to Panama.

From the back cover:  After two attempts on her life, Alex is faced with the ultimate decision . . . kill or be killed.

U.S. Treasury Agent Alexandra LaDuca is at a crossroads. Her job is beating her up, emotionally and psychologically. And the moral battle between her faith and her responsibilities is taking its toll on her effectiveness. For the first time, she wonders how long she can last.

Forcing an end to her long-running and treacherous duel with the heads of the Dosi Cartel, Alex knows this is her last do-or-die operation. It’s time call in all the favors owed to her.

Her fight takes her into the criminal underground of America’s east coast, south into the violent underworld of Central America, across Honduras and El Salvador, and finally to Panama for a shattering confrontation.

Alex’s career, her life, and her future with the man she loves—a future she never expected after the violent death of her fiance two years earlier—are all at stake. After a final payback in Panama, nothing will be the same . . . if she even survives.

Buckle up for another wild ride with Alex LaDuca as, this time, her adventures take us to Central America and Panama.  Alex now is dealing with cartels, politics, the criminal underground, murder and Yardena Dorsi who wants her dead.  Cross, double-cross and cloak and dagger are just some of the elements that Alex has to deal with in this adventure.  Mr. Hynd is brilliant is defining his characters and the more defined they are the more we like them and the more we like them the more we identify with what they are doing.  Once the action gets going Mr. Hynd revs up the thriller quotient considerably which  will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can.  This book is a suspense thriller as Alex’s life is in serious danger from the beginning.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it.  I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to more adventures with Alex LaDuca.

Noel Hynd in his new book, “Hostage In Havana” Book One in The Cuban Trilogy series published by Zondervan takes us back into the life of Alexandra LaDuca as she is plunged into new espionage involving Cuba.

From the back cover:  U.S. Treasury Agent Alexandra LaDuca leaves her Manhattan home on an illegal mission to Cuba that could cost her everything. At stake? Her life … and the solution to a decades-old mystery, the recovery of a large amount of cash, and the return of an expatriate American fugitive to the United States.

After slipping into the country on a small boat, Alex makes her way to Havana. Accompanying her is the attractive but dangerous Paul Guarneri, a Cuban-born exile who lives in the gray areas of the law. Together, they plunge into intrigue and danger in a climate of political repression and organized crime. Without the support of the United States, Alex must navigate Cuban police, saboteurs, pro-Castro security forces, and a formidable network of those loyal to the American underworld.

Bullets fly as allies become traitors and enemies become unexpected friends. Alex, recovering from the tragic loss of her fiance a year before, reexamines faith and new love while taking readers on a fast-paced adventure.

Buckle up for a wild ride as we travel to an island nation that has been off-limits to Americans since the Cuban Missile Crisis of the Sixties.  Alex now has to sneak into Cuba to bring out an American fugitive, help Paul smuggle his family fortune out and defend against a trained assassin who has her targeted.  Mr. Hynd is brilliant is defining his characters and the more defined they are the more we like them and the more we like them the more we identify with what they are doing.  Once the action gets going Mr. Hynd revs up the thriller quotient considerably which  will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can.  This book is a suspense thriller as both Alex and Paul’s lives are in serious danger from the beginning.  Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down or stop thinking about it.  I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
