Erin McKenna, a beautiful songwriter married to a crooked Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy, is kidnapped by Benjamin Armenta, the ruthless leader of the powerful Gulf Cartel. But his demands are as unusual as the crumbling castle in which Erin is kept. She is ordered to compose a unique narcocorrido, a folk ballad that records the exploits of the drug dealers, gunrunners, and outlaws who have populated Mexican history for generations. Under the threat of death, Armenta orders Erin to tell his life story — in music — and write “the greatest narcocorrido of all time.” As the mesmerizing music and lyrics of Erin’s song cascade from the jungle hideout, they serve as a siren song to the two men who love her: her outlaw husband, Bradley Jones, and the lawman, Charlie Hood — who together have the power to rescue her. Here, amid the ancient beauty of the Yucatecan lowlands, the long-simmering rivalry between these two men will be brought closer to its explosive finale. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Yonda | 1/21/2014

    " This book was good right up till the end. The details and storytelling were pretty good throughout, but the ending of the book was completely unsatisfying, predictable, and blase. Otherwise, the story was interesting and fairly engaging. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 1/13/2014

    " The Charlie Hood saga continues. Not a bad book. It was interesting how the environment plays a role. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Squeaky | 12/21/2013

    " Charlie and Bradley travel their seperate ways to rescue Erin in Mexico, who is held by a music-loving drug lord. Also, to teach Bradley a lesson... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 12/17/2013

    " I have to remember that I don't like this author much, at least not the Charlie Hood series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skip | 12/17/2013

    " Parker is clearly obsessed with several things: the beauty of the desert, the warring drug cartels of Mexico, the inadequacy of the police and military in Mexico, and his crazy fixation with his character, Mike Finnegan. Singer Erin McKennah is kidnapped by Mexican kingpin Benjamin Armienta under the watchful eye of her husband, Bradley Jones, as retribution for Bradley's assistance in smuggling guns and cash for his main adversary. Working with Charlie Hood, they forge a rescue effort from Armienta's castle on the Yucatan peninsula. Parker has written much better than this. "

    " I loved TJP and his earlier, wow-does-this-man-get-life-behind-the-Orange-Curtain mysteries. Recently I have been disappointed. Who changed -- him? or me? Not sure, but this one was ho hum for me "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doneen | 12/6/2013

    " I'm not as big fan of the Charlie Hood series as I am of this author's other novels. I'm probably not going to read any more of them if there are others. I do think a mediocre T. Jefferson Parker book is better than most other suspense books, however. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tim | 12/6/2013

    " This is an odd novel. 3 of 10 stars "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bill | 11/22/2013

    " This was a pretty terrible book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 11/15/2013

    " Took a long time to finish but now I want to go back and read the other Charlie Hood books in the series, in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ken | 11/7/2013

    " Charlie volunteers to messenger the ransom for fellow LA Sheriff's Dept. officer's wife/musician - Erin McKenna; drug lords and their armies, Mexican Army and Hurricane Ivana all put barriers between Charlie and fellow officer/criminal Bradley Jones and their teams as they race to save Erin "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob108819 | 11/4/2013

    " Please stop writing about Charlie Hood and get back to what you do best. Your novels are outstanding; this series is monotonous. This book was actually better than the last 2 but still a disappointment overall. Come on T. Jeff, you're better than this! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 10/24/2013

    " Just could not get into this one, was bored w/ the captive part and am tired of Finnegan, Mike needs to go. There are plenty of evil guys out there no need to keep a nut case who believes he is the devil. Let's get rid of him and move on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 6/30/2013

    " Review submitted to Suspense magazine "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlie | 10/27/2012

    " I liked this book. It was very interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheree Ross | 8/12/2012

    " The Jaguar makes Erin the center of the book with Charlie taking a backseat. I am not sure what Parker plans for the Mike character. I wish he would get on with it and get rid of him. I like Charlie Hood,,,,,,,,,,the character of Mike is ruining the series. "

    " finnegan character coming along "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Burt | 7/22/2012

    " In order to enjoy this book you must have read the previous 4 or 5 novels. It was good but a little to mystical for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Monica | 7/3/2012

    " The more I read it, the less I liked it. Quit after 150 pages. Story formulaic, characters flat, dull and annoying. It didn't help that I had not read the previous Charlie Hood book, but nothing will tempt me to do so. Hugely disappointing since I have really liked many of his earlier books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amelia | 6/22/2012

    " I had to stop reading this halfway through because it was just really boring. The line "come to me by moonlight, sugar" made me cringe right off the bat, and I should have followed that impulse. If you are immediately embarrassed for the author just don't read on, lesson learned. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/30/2012

    " A continuation of the Charlie Hood character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 4/29/2012

    " I knocked this one off over the weekend. Very good series. I always look forward to finding out what Charlie Hood is up to. And just who the hell is Mike Finnegan? "
