Meet your new superhero. Former Marine and Detroit ex-cop August Snow barrels in with two big fists and a heart to match. Fiercely protective of his friends, family and community, Snow will not be stopped in the search for justice. While he plays the lone wolf, he is equally dependent on some very strong women in his life — including his girlfriend, godmother and ace computer hacker — not to mention a boxer with pink gloves. Keep your guard up! Snow, his friends and this novel are a knockout.
Authentico Foods Inc. has been a part of Detroit’s Mexicantown for over thirty years, grown from a home kitchen business to a city-blocklong facility that supplies Mexican tortillas to restaurants throughout the Midwest.
Detroit ex-cop and Mexicantown native August Snow has been invited for a business meeting at Authentico Foods. Its owner, Ronaldo Ochoa, is dying, and is being blackmailed into selling the company to an anonymous entity. Worried about his employees, Ochoa wants August to buy it. August has no interest in running a tortilla empire, but he does want to know who’s threatening his neighborhood. Quickly, his investigation takes a devastating turn and he and his loved ones find themselves ensnared in a dangerous net of ruthless billionaire developers. August Snow must fight not only for his life, but for the soul of Mexicantown itself.
