Wheels Up: A Novel of Drugs, Cartels and Survival

Wheels Up: A Novel of Drugs, Cartels and Survival
 
Wheels-up: A Novel of Drugs, Cartels and Survival, is Jeanine Kitchel's fast-paced debut novel in her cartel trilogy. Mexico aficionado and prolific writer Kitchel will transport you into the heart of the drug cartel business. Zooming from cities to jungles and haciendas located in Mexico, Colombia, and Guatemala, the story will keep you wondering what could possibly happen next.

When El Patron, the head of the Culiacan Cartel in Sinaloa, Mexico, is imprisoned and the men in direct-line for succession are either dead or unsuitable, his niece Layla Navarro is chosen as his replacement. Layla's vivid descriptions of life inside the double-crossing, brutal existence of the Mexican drug cartels are precisely as I imagined.
