Curse of Cortes'


During 1671 Henry Morgan took 36 ships and 2,000 men to raid the richest city in the New World, Panama City. He captured 600 slaves for ransom and plundered over 30 tons worth $1 billion today.  Afterward, Morgan cheated his men and took the entire plunder with 200 slaves on three ships and disappeared.  After Morgan returned with a single embattled ship, a skeleton crew, he abandoned the treasure and burned his log books to keep the world from learning the truth.

Over three hundred years later, Sophia Martinez discovers odd relics that open a legacy of family death, disappearance and dementia. At the center of the mystery is a bloody log book written by an insane Inquisition executioner named Cortes', and a forgotten sacred pilgrimage to the origins of the Mayan creation myth.  With a psychopath in pursuit, Sophia will need the help of lost relatives to solve the enigma or she too will vanish without a trace - and countless will perish on live television. 

Coming Spring 2021!

I read it twice and both times I was at the edge of my seat to see what happened next.

I started your book before Christmas, and couldn't put it down for about four days straight!    Beautifully written. Perfect  ending.

It has everything - action, adventure, mystery and romance.

At times I had to put it down because my heart was pounding.  I loved, loved, loved the redemption of the ending. Amazing story. 

Kathy Miller

Loved Cortes' but SWARM is one of my favorite books ever.  I didn't want it to end, and I can't wait for the sequel. Love it.
