The Mysterious Bookshop

Blake, James Carlos, The House of Wolfe

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 an ambitious young gangster named El Galán, who hopes that his audacious exploit will gain his small gang a partnership with a major crime cartel. He sets the wedding party's ransom at five million USD, to be paid in cash within twenty-four hours. But El Galán doesn't know that bridesmaid Jessica Juliet Wolfe comes from a family of Texas gunrunners whose blood relatives belong to a powerful but mysterious Mexican cartel. As the captives realize the full horror of their situation, the Wolfes on both sides of the border come together and begin a desperate hunt to find Jessie before the deadline expires. Gritty and exhilarating,The House of Wolfe takes readers on a furious ride from Mexico City's opulent neighborhoods to its frenetic downtown streets and feral shantytowns to a spectacularly hellish climax.
