May Book Club Meeting: "Queen of the South" by Arturo Perez-Reverte @ Home of Julie Williams
The BUUF Book Club meets again on Friday, May 17th, from 7:00 to 9:00pm at Julie Williams’ house in Benton Harbor. Join the group in discussing Queen of the South by Arturo Perez-Reverte.
From Publisher’s weekly review:
“Readers of Pérez-Reverte’s sixth thriller won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough: the author of The Club DumasThe Seville Communion and other literary adventure novels now tackles the gritty world of drug trafficking in Mexico, southern Spain and Morocco, offering a frightening, fascinating look at the international business of transporting cocaine and hashish as well as a portrait of a smart, fast, daring and lucky woman, Teresa Mendoza…. no mere survivor: gaining knowledge in every endeavor she becomes involved in and using her own head for numbers and brilliant intuition, she eventually winds up heading one of the biggest drug traffic rings in the Mediterranean. Spanning 12 years and introducing a host of intriguing, scary characters, from Teresa’s drug-addicted prison comrade to her former assassin turned bodyguard, the novel tells the gripping tale of “a woman thriving in a world of dangerous men.”
