Rendezvous in Veracruz
"Carolyn knows how to keep a tight grip on suspense while having some fun with the characters and the scenery. She makes the milieu a real part of the story." -- Ed Gorman, author of Bad Moon Rising
Rendezvous in Veracruz by Carolyn Hart
When feisty American college student Maura intercepts a mysterious message, she soon finds herself caught up in the middle of an international crime spree. With no idea how many of her acquaintances are involved, she doesn't dare to trust anyone! Her only option is to go on the run in order to elude the ruthless criminals who will stop at nothing to protect their secret.

Long before Carolyn Hart wrote her Death on Demand mystery series, she wrote Rendezvous in Veracruz, a novel of suspense intended for young adults. It may have been aimed at that audience, but I was captivated by the two gutsy young women in the book, and couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
