Cartels and Combinations by Mike Mcpheters

When you work to stop crime in America, you give a great service, but sometimes there can be a heavy price. Criminals won't stop at anything to gain revenge. They might even kill your family members.

Cartels and Combinations is a fiction novel based around a Hispanic family. Elena Guzman is the daughter of a prosecuting attorney and a niece to one of the most famous drug lords in Mexico. After she is kidnapped by the Vultures, her parents and an FBI agent work together to get her back, before it is too late.

The novel was introduced to me by the author himself. After he told me a little bit about his history, I decided to give his first fiction book a shot. I can't say I was disappointed. I've never been much into stories about drug lords, but I have to say this one was pretty good.

I do have to mention that there are a few "spiritual" scenes in the novel. Most of the characters are Mormon and there are a few sections in the book that discuss the faith. I wouldn't place the book under christian fiction, but I think it is necessary for my followers to be aware that some stuff is there. I still think the book is worth reading. I gave it a 3 out of 5 star rating.
