This is a story told not from the perspective of the clueless detective, but rather of a victim who decides not to be a victim any more.
The book presents a small time gang boss and the town under his thumb, set just after WWII. So here is the question the book poses for the reader-Will Carmen get away? On top of becoming a murderer herself, she has a million and one reasons to run. An unexpected book, that takes surprising turns. It is The Godfather meets Sarah Connor (from the Terminator.) It's all about a guy who won't take no for an answer. And the woman who has had enough. It is a great read. Kept me riveted from beginning to end.
The main story is that Carmen, a woman with a baby whose name is Mario (hence the title? I suspect that the story might morph into his considering there are sequels) after mob boss Francisco kills her family member. Did I mention that Carmen also has the mob boss’s money with her as well? That aspect, along with her tugging a baby along, really had to the tension and suspense of this great novel.
As a woman reading this book, I felt empowered. Carmen really is a horrible situation, a situation if she didn’t live in Mexico in 1926, she could have probably gotten out of. But since she is a woman, and options are limited, she really had to struggle to get out of her unfortunate situation. Francisco, the villain, is quite terrifying, and one of the main reasons this novel had me on the edge of my seat.
“Mario 1: Woman in Jeopardy” will keep you hooked from the first page to the very end of the novel. It is packed with adventure, mystery, crime, and history. It’s violent but not too much. This isn’t your typical pulp fiction – this is in a league all of its own.

“By the time they find the bodies, I will be far away.” Excerpt From: George Hatcher. “Woman in Jeopardy.” iBooks.
So begins a Who Done It? style of writing that brings back the memory of old pulp fiction of the 1940 -50’s. There is glamor and filth in just enough mixture to keep you turning the pages. The crimes are very graphic, in the style that only books done by secret publishing houses who sold books like these on the Down Low. It all fits for that how this book comes across.
You have a dame, name Carmen who reluctantly plays the heroine, and you learn where she came from to get that way. Like many hispanic women, she is trapped by circumstances beyond her control. Yet she fights to survive and keep her family safe. First it was her younger sister Elena she fought to keep innocent. He sister though is a spitfire of her own, and soon enough makes her preferences for the life she wants clear. So Carmen with no way to control her sister tries to get the new husband (and her former lover) to do right by her.
<i> Woman In Jeopardy</i> takes you back to the 1920’s and on during prohibition and after. The years of and the life of Francisco the main man whom all this circles around her like a bad rogue moon.
Graphic sex and graphic death fill this book but not overly so. Enough to keep you on the edge of your seat and to exhaustion by the time you are finished. Worthy of the pulp price that it is for digital download.
