Missing In Miami: A Nikki Garcia Mystery by Kathryn Lane

New Release In The Nikki Garcia Mystery Series!

A woman is dead, a teenager is missing, and the partners of a vacation stem cell travel agency in Miami are suspects.

One partner is the father of the missing girl and the other one is the husband of the murdered woman. The widower is unreachable, having taken clients on a stem cell therapy trip to the Caribbean.

Nikki Garcia investigates the girl’s disappearance and, in the midst of conflicting testimony from witnesses, it’s impossible to distinguish victims from perpetrators. Following a trail of evidence, Nikki and Eduardo, her husband, assume undercover identities and fly to Havana, Cuba, only to find a world of deceit, betrayal, and espionage.

When Eduardo locates the widower, he attempts to gather sensitive information on the missing teenager and reveals more information than he should.

Nikki’s colleagues in her Miami private investigator office fear the worst when communication with her becomes impossible.

Will they manage to escape the fate they both fear? And what about the missing teenager – will she be found before it’s too late?

If you love women sleuths, crime fiction, and the mystery and suspense novels of John Grisham, Kristi Belcamino, and Isabella Maldonado, you will also love Silver Falchion Award-Winning Author Kathryn Lane’s Nikki Garcia Mystery Series.

Missing in Miami is a gripping read that has the ring of authenticity to it. Kathryn Lane knows what she’s writing about. I loved the Cuban scenes. If Nikki Garcia ever decides to leave the detective profession, she has a future in the spy business. I’d hire her in a heartbeat. ─J ames M. Olson, former CIA Chief of Counterintelligence, and the author of To Catch a Spy: The Art of Counterintelligence.

Struggling with the ghosts of her young son’s tragic death a few years earlier, Nikki Garcia accepts an assignment to investigate fraud allegations at a company. She discovers two unexplained deaths have occurred and soon finds herself grappling with high stakes, mega-money corruption. When a third person dies at the company, she suspects a much darker plot is at play.

Nikki attends a company party thinking she can uncover tightly held secrets that will help solve the sinister plot she suspects. Instead, she meets a medical doctor and feels an immediate attraction to him. As her relationship with him deepens, so does the danger she finds herself in.

After receiving a veiled threat to her life, she hires a former CIA operative to assist her.

Then she’s kidnapped.

Is the charismatic doctor part of the sinister plot? Before long, she realizes it is up to her to escape and keep herself alive.

Waking Up in Medellin isn’t your run-of-the-mill thriller, but a powerful story of conflicts that escalate swiftly. — Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite

Review: The story has many strong characters and the supporting cast is a necessary part of the story, however, through-out it really comes down to the two main characters, Nikki and her Doctor. There are so many good guys, bad guys, and many that can go either way that the story moves at lighten speed toward an explosive finish. Ironically, encapsulated within the story, are tidbits of fact and interest that are stories within the story and amazingly they add more spice than seems possible, almost as a breather from the ever-building suspense. Grisham comes to mind, a great story accompanied by teaching another culture, as a comparison to this tale.

Danger In The Coyote Zone: A Nikki Garcia Thriller by Kathryn Lane

Nikki Garcia, a former fraud auditor turned international private investigator, travels to Mexico—a country where private investigators are outlawed—to find a missing child.

The parents are embroiled in a nasty custody battle, with each parent accusing the other of the girl’s disappearance. It’s an easy child-snatching case—right?

That’s what Nikki thinks until an irreverent, marihuana-smoking homeless woman provides an eye-witness account of the girl’s kidnapping. Following the witness’s account, Nikki goes undercover and infiltrates a ring of dangerous human traffickers. In the midst of despair and treachery, can she find a glimmer of hope?

When the mother receives a ransom request, Nikki is already undercover with the diabolical human traffickers and her boss assumes she was purposely misled and sets out on a rescue mission.

Nikki’s fiancé, fearing the forces of evil will prevail, starts his own high stakes search to rescue the love of his life. In this gripping, twist-packed journey, will he locate her before it’s too late?

And what about the missing child? Who is going to save her?

If you love women sleuths, crime fiction, and the mystery and suspense novels of John Grisham, Kristi Belcamino, and Isabella Maldonado, you will also love Silver Falchion Award-Winning Author Kathryn Lane’s Nikki Garcia Mystery Series.

Reader Views says: “The action is so fast-paced readers never has a chance to catch their breath until the very end. Nikki is engaging and realistic, and I loved following right alongside her throughout the action. With bad people working on several sides, it is hard to figure out how this story is going to end until the actual end. Clues are given, but the plot keeps twisting and turning so readers will have to wait until the last chapter to know for sure who the bad guy is.”

Review: Nikki Garcia is an unlikely Sam Spade: a former international auditor who turns private investigator and lands an assignment in Mexico to find a missing ten-year-old child, Bibi Lombardi. Bibi’s estranged parents are fighting over her custody and one of them could even be responsible for her disappearance. It’s an easy child snatching case – right? Nikki pursues a trail of dangerous criminals through designated UNESCO locations, archaeological sites, picturesque colonial towns, and barren deserts. But when Sofía, Bibi’s mother, receives a ransom request, Nikki is already undercover with a gang of “Coyotes.” Nikki’s boss and fellow private eye is certain someone purposely provided misleading information on the abduction to prevent Nikki from recovering the child. Or is the kidnapper headed north to the U.S. border, where Bibi’s fate could be much worse than her current situation?

Award winning author Kathryn Lane spent some time with The Big Thrill discussing her latest novel, COYOTE ZONE:

Danger in the Coyote Zone is the thrilling new installment in the Nikki Garcia series by Kathryn Lane. Once again, Lane takes her readers to exotic locales with glutinous helpings of adventure and intrigue. The heroine, Nikki Garcia, is drawn back into threatening circumstances when her client’s daughter is kidnapped by a human trafficker and sends our heroine into undercover work that threatens her life and those of the young victims she needs to rescue.

Robert Selby, screenplay writer, book reviewer, and volunteer at the Killer Nashville International Mystery Writers’ Conference

Coyote Zone is a dynamic thriller. The action is so fast-paced the reader never has a chance to catch their breath until the very end! Nikki is engaging and realistic. All the characters are well developed. Readers will have no problems hating the characters meant to be hated, particularly with the hefty subject matter Lane tackles.

5 Stars From Book Marketing Global Network: Exciting Mystery Crime Thriller!

I am positive that Author Kathryn Lane’s career as an International Finance Executive and her extensive knowledge with Latin American culture, brought Nikki Garcia (main character) to life in this exciting mystery crime thriller.

Kathryn educates her readers in the regular and famous places in Barcelona, Arabic words and phrases, Romani words, and Spanish/Catalan words and phrases. Her extensive list of characters (in the beginning of the novel) will help you relate early as the story unfolds.

Once you begin, you will not put this well written, fast paced mystery down. Chapter one begins at the airport baggage claim in Barcelona Spain. From the start, Nikki Garcia draws you into her situation and her romantic relationship with her fiancé, Eduardo Duarte, who is a Colombian citizen and medical doctor.

Let me bring you into Nikki’s secret investigation in Chapter 30. Nikki is at the Barcelona Majestic Hotel.

…“Attired in a housekeeper’s uniform and long black wig, Nikki looked in the mirror to make certain she had not left telltale streaks in the makeup that darkened her face and arms. Slipping on a set of glasses with heavy dark frames and lightly shaded lenses Floyd had provided as part of her disguise, she found they sat heavy on the bridge of her nose. Yet they further transformed her appearance, so she kept them on. Her last step included tucking the special mobile phone Floyd had provided into her apron pocket.

…Eduardo, in his maintenance coverall, had been watching Nikki. He called Floyd. “We’re ready.”

…“All clear.” Nikki could just make out Floyd’s voice over the phone. “I’ll meet you at the service elevator.”

…“Roger, roger,” Eduardo responded.

…“Roger?” Nikki repeated, chuckling as they walked toward the service elevator in the hallway where the emergency stairwell was also located.

…“Where did you learn that?”

…“Floyd. He said pilots and short-wave radio operators use it.”

…“Your accent makes it sound sexy,” Nikki said.

…They stepped out of the elevator into the plain service hallway, Nikki pushing the housekeeping cart. Floyd opened the door to the richly carpeted hall that guests used and checked for people. When he saw no one, he motioned them through. He would serve as lookout in the hallway near the door to the emergency stairs.

…Nikki used the passkey to open the door. With trepidation, she stepped into a dim foyer and pulled the cart in behind her. Without turning a light on, she continued into a living room. She stopped cold when she heard shrieking.

…An angry cat?”

…It is at this point that I will let you discover for yourself, what is making that awful sound and how much danger they might be in?

Author Kathryn Lane has also written ‘Waking Up in Medellin’ (Book One In The Nikki Garcia Thriller Series), ‘Coyote Zone’ (Book Two In The Nikki Garcia Thriller Series), ‘Revenge In Barcelona’ (Book Three In The Nikki Garcia Thriller Series) and a short story collection titled ‘Backyard Volcano: And Other Mysteries Of The Heart’.
