Nash Novak, a struggling Seattle businesswoman who has been framed for arson and murder, is in desperate need of money for her defence. The only way for her to get it: a coffee plantation she has inherited. But there's a catch: she has to run the plantation, deep in the jungles of Colombia, a land of drug lords and warlords.The mysterious inheritance of the plantation, from the father she had never met, comes at the same time a criminal conspiracy is turning her life into a living hell - a conspiracy that stretches all the way to Colombia. Racing to South America, on the run from the police, she becomes entangled with suspicious characters. Things get even more complicated when Nash's quest to clear herself takes her to Shanghai, home of the powerful Chinese Triads that control the flow of dirty money from gambling, prostitution, drugs and murder.Refusing to let the cartel's murderers drive her off the plantation and ruin the lives of hundreds of families who work it, Nash tackles organised crime and police agencies on two continents to save her plantation... and stay alive.

Meh. Pro's = set in Seattle, Colombia and China, topics include coffee and organized crime. Interesting mystery, action keeps moving
Con's - very awkward sexual scenes, intrusive exposition
