Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The phone rang and she knew they were going to kill her. The certainty of it kept her motionless, blade high in the air, hair stuck to her face, a cloud of steam and drops of water cursing down the tiles. Blip, blip. Frozen, she held her breath as if the stillness, or the silence, could somehow change the course of the past. Blip, blip. She was sitting in the bathtub, in the middle of shaving her right leg, soapy water rising to her waist, her flesh full of goose-bumps the warm water did nothing to ease. Blip, blip. In her bedroom, the stereo blasted Los Tigres del Norte singing Camelia la Tejana -betrayal and contraband, they said, are like oil and vinegar. So begins a journey that will transform this innocent barrio beauty into a woman who is tough and powerful enough to write her own rules.

Synopsis:

Derived from factual evidence, Perez-Reverte brings us a surprising novel with an interesting twist. This time, the hero is a woman named Teresa Mendoza who is nicknamed by journalists as The Queen of the South and The Mexican by the authorities of three continents. Teresa narrates her story as it unfolds in Mexico over twelve years ago when she was the girlfriend of a pilot employed by drug lords. She did not know how to read nor write, however, after her boyfriend is murdered, she began creating an empire from nothing in the male-dominated world of drug trafficking. Henceforth, the journey begins as she grows her business by conducting deals with the mafias from Spain, France, Italy and Russia.
