Cooper Townsend is a man whose trade is death. He kills for money and feels nothing. He is an island untouched by the world, living a life of self-indulgence in Mexico with nice clothes, a fine apartment and the company of women who take money and ask no questions.

When Cooper takes a contract that threads the line between life and death for his target, he steps into another world: the Mexico of true money and unfettered power. There he finds that sin is the most powerful driver behind the lives of the fabulously wealthy. One sin in particular draws him into a cycle of deception that can only end in bloodshed and may yet hold the key to personal salvation.

Cooper Townsend is about to learn that love is the most dangerous thing of all.


"Sam Hawken has been slowly but surely making his presence known in the crime fiction community over the past few years, and Juárez Dance is another blazingly colorful feather in his cap. If you're not reading Hawken's work yet, get on it now." -- Elizabeth A. White
