Human CargoDésirée Zamorano

Désirée talks about her novel Human Cargo, as well as creating a Latina PI, the invisibility of Mexican-Americans, and challenging her protagonist. Do not miss the show notes to this episode. 

Human Cargo is traditional mystery at its best. It’s a straight-up PI novel that tackles big issues on a very human level.

All InLisa Klink

Lisa Klink chats with me here about her recent thriller, All In, a fun, fast-paced ride through professional poker, asset recovery, and revenge — a perfect thriller mix.

But this book is not Lisa’s first rodeo. Her career has covered television, writing novels in The Dead Man series, developing theme park attractions, you name it. In All In, her page-turning writing is paired with a lighter tone — she compares it to the TV series Leverage, so if you liked that, you’ll love this book.
