Where the Serpent Hides
Dr. Jeffery Diamond, a recently widowed physician, practices medicine in a small east Texas town. Due for a long vacation, Diamond plans a two-week trip to Mexico. But as he flies his private aircraft to several destinations in Mexico, he inadvertently becomes involved with a major drug cartel that has targeted his aircraft as a potential vehicle for transporting cocaine into the U.S.
This fast-moving, suspenseful story combines information about Mexican history and traditions with revelations of how a modern cartel operates. The dynamics of Diamond's travel is made more mysterious by the vague and unsure rubbing together of two very different cultures along the border between Mexico and the United States. The plot involving sex, deception, and murder focuses on the protagonist's unwitting involvement with drug cartels in Mexico and the United States, making the story realistic, the issues contemporary, and the theme reflective of troubling headlines seen daily in major newspapers.
Diamond narrowly escapes death several times as he struggles to determine who is trying to kill him, and why. What is the danger that has been set in motion and cannot be stopped? What will his fate be as he uncovers the truth?
