The gruesome murder of a prostitute sets the stage of Martha L. Cervantes’ gripping new thriller, “Emily.” This novel features indelibly characterized men and women, a relentlessly paced plot and a storytelling style that will keep readers at the edge of their seats from beginning to end.

The story opens in a small, rural town in Chapas, Mexico. It is in this quiet locality that Mary and her sister, Emily, work as ladies of the evening. One night, the two girls go out for their usual evening, unaware that something horrendous is about to take place. A thug appears out of nowhere and kills Emily, leaving Mary petrified with fear and traumatized for life.

The next day, news about a serial murderer going after ladies of the evening spread like wild fire. Mary pushes the cops to find her sister’s killer. To make matters even more perplexing, Emily’s body has mysteriously disappeared. What unfurls next is a cat and mouse game that will send readers deep into a world where nothing and nobody is quite what they seem.

Suffused by an air of terror and intrigue that is immediate and relentless, “Emily” is a brilliantly orchestrated tale of vengeance and retribution. Fans of crime and suspense thrillers will enjoy this offering from an up and coming author.
