In Jesse Kellerman's mystery debut, Sunstroke, he told us a gripping tale about secrets and lies of the worst kind. For Gloria Mendez, she was a single 36-year old woman, who had her hopes and dreams set on her boss, Carl Perriera. But when she received a strange phone call from him after an earthquake, she set out to find out about his disappearance in a small ghost town in Mexico. From there, she met the Mexican police and was told he died in an accident. Back and forth, she tried to handle his estate, when she was gotten more twists and turns about who her former boss was, and who tried to take advantage of. It was up to Gloria to find out the whole story and take matters in her own hands for justice.
This was a fantastic mystery debut. I really cared about Gloria and really got to know her via her flashbacks to when she lived with her brother and mother. I liked Reggie, too, and thought of the characters were a bit rough around the edges. I loved the dual locations of Mexico and Los Angeles for the scenic settings in this novel. This would make you care about her and root for her through the end. This was really a nail-biting gripping mystery. Great drama, terrific non-stop action and heart-pounding suspense and intrigue to the shocking climax.
