Payback in Panama - By Noel Hynd - Book Review

When I first decided to read this book, I actually didn't know it was the final book in what is called The Cuban Trilogy.  However, I actually didn't notice until I set the book down and glanced closer at the cover.  Although it intrigues me to want to read the rest of the series, I will say it was a great stand alone book for someone like me who didn't know.

Alexandra Lacuca is a U.S Treasury Agent, from the beginning of the book she is thrown into important decisions and plots against her.  She's been working on a case against a dangerous cartel, The Dosi Cartel.  She wants them out of the picture for good, and they want her dead.

She's also dating one of Hollywood's most loved actors, and as her relationship deepens she is torn between a job she loves and the man she loves.  Her boyfriend Eric is worried that one day she'll leave on the job, and never return and he won't ever know where she was or what happened.  Alex is torn between telling the man she is falling more and more deeply in love with, the truth about her situation and where she must go and what she must do.  Or playing by the rules of her job, and giving no explanation.

As the situation between herself and the Dosi cartel escalates.  She is questioning her own life and where is going more and more.  So much so, that she may be putting herself and her life at risk.  Alex begins calling up some old contacts, getting their help and opinion on the situation.  Left with a moral dilemma on what to do, she chooses a path that feels right, but could very well be her last.

Payback in Panama by Noel Hynd is fast paced and filled with enough suspense and intrigue to keep you flying through the pages.  This book is Christian faith based, and clean and appropriate for any age reader.  However, because of the content and types of conflict I believe is would be more enjoyed for ages 18 and up.  Like I mentioned above, I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.  I put this one on my highly recommend list of books!
