Woman in Jeopardy, first of the Ambulance Chaser series by author George Hatcher has been released in hardback, paperback and ebook.
Carmen Garcia witnesses and avenges the murder of her sister by crime boss Francisco Sanchez. To complicate matters, Sanchez is Carmen’s brother-in-law, and has been abusing Carmen for years. Carmen steals her newborn nephew, and flees from Nogales to Tucson to Spanish Harlem to Los Angeles, struggling to make a life for herself and Mario. And maybe she’d have gotten away scot-free—if she hadn’t taken a million dollars with her, too.
Hatcher is a gifted writer and this is clearly obvious in his book, “Woman In Jeopardy.” The author plot moves with a smooth pace while pouring on enough suspense to keep the reader turning the pages to find out what happens next. The dialogue is realistic, and the diabolical mindset of Francisco, the key player, and Carmen, the underdog were vividly portrayed with Hatcher’s ability to create sympathetic characters that raises this novel to the next level. Although not all of the personalities are given equal treatment or enough stage time to become fully developed, those that are such as Elena, Manuela, Milton and his sister Delores, prove that the author has the skills necessary to craft a story with protagonists the audience can like, hate and relate to. In addition, Hatcher obvious yet never heavy-handed messages about the strength of Carmen’s love for her sister that she sacrificed herself to protect her, and in the end, did what was necessary to revenge her death, without a second thought, give the novel added depth. Overall, it is a book that grips you and doesn’t let go until the last page has been turned. Author Ju Ephraime
“Woman in Jeopardy” surprised me, which is one of the best compliments I can give any book. The characters are gritty, the plot shifts several times in unexpected directions, and the narrative is evocative. SF Author Steve Lazarowitz
It grabs you by the throat and won’t let go!“By the time they find the bodies, I will be far away.” A Who-Done-It style of writing that brings back the memory of old pulp fiction of the 1940 -50’s. Carmen is trapped by circumstances beyond her control. Graphic sex and graphic violence keeps you on the edge of your seat! reviewer Nancy Louise
