Amidst a culture of violence, crime, and corruption, two women, opposites in many ways, are drawn together with a common purpose-survival.


The fentanyl crisis just got a lot worse. Drug lord Diego Garcia has begun trafficking a new fentanyl-laced pill that has quadrupled overdose deaths in Nevada and California. DEA special agent Antonio Vega has a plan to capture Garcia and shut down his criminal enterprise before his designer drug goes nationwide and kills hundreds of thousands of Americans.


Meanwhile, Elena Sanchez, Garcia's wife, incarcerated for drug trafficking and the attempted murder of a cop, escapes from prison and begins a perilous journey through Mexico to her husband, who is hiding away in his heavily guarded secret mountain estate. Former New Orleans homicide detective Jo Crowder agrees to help Sanchez evade the Mexican authorities, rival cartels, and street gangs, who pursue them every step of the way.



Industry Reviews

ï»ï»"This action-packed story revolves around a cast of diverse and deeply developed characters, but the novel's greatest strength comes from former trial lawyer Zappa's ability to construct an impressively intricate storyline. The plot twists are worthy of applause, and readers will find themselves riveted throughout the highly palatable fusion of police procedural and mainstream thriller. Thriller fans will find this adventure highly entertaining and addictive. Verdict: Get it." -Kirkus Reviews


"The Lion Hunt is a tense and smart thriller that captivates from beginning to end. The well-developed characters, gripping interactions, and timely themes make it a standout read in the genre. Zappa has crafted a tale that not only entertains but also prompts reflection on the complexities of justice and morality. This is a must-read for fans of crime novels, or anyone just looking for a tale well told." - Brent Meske, author 


"Where Zappa excels is in his ability to keep the readers in suspense with entirely unexpected twists and turns ... Above all else, readers fall for Zappa's characters and the treacherous journey each has to go through, creating an entertaining experience for all audiences." - The US Review of Books
