About the Book

Everyone has a secret…and some secrets are worth killing for.

Tobias Mead is rich, handsome, and charming—a popular combination with the ladies in New York City’s high-end clubs. But the night he meets Penélope, everyone else ceases to exist. Their attraction is immediate and intense.

When Penélope’s body is discovered in a nearby park, Tobias is devastated—and then terrified. The police accuse him of murder, and his face is plastered on every news outlet in the city. If that’s not bad enough, it turns out that Penélope was romantically involved with Antonio Cabrera, the volatile heir of a dangerous Central American drug cartel. Now the family wants revenge, as well as something valuable that Penélope may have left with an unsuspecting Tobias.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "The Kiss After Midnight is structured flawlessly, and editing errors are virtually nonexistent. The plot flows smoothly and readers will become invested with the characters and caught up in the complex and entertaining story. The novel is far more than a typical yarn about running from the mob, and is full of breathless tension, compelling characters, and unexpected twists and turns. A perfect thriller by an extraordinary new writer. Very highly recommended." - Jeannine Chartier Hanscom

- "[...] Even when it seemed overly complicated, and you started to wonder how anyone could make sense of it all, Mr.Amazon not only managed to, but he managed to do it in a way that made you sit back andwonder how you missed all the connections in the first place. All of his characters are extremely well written, and possess so much depth to them that they become more than just words on a page. They become real people.People who love and hate; people who would stop at nothing to get what they wanted (up to an including murder). There is an ever present element of betrayal in this book, and you begin to wonder (for a good reason) if anyone really trusts anyone else inexplicably. Thankfully, all your questions are answered at the end." - krystalwrites

- "I was a first Read Winner of this book and I loved every pulse pounding minute of it. It was full of action and intrigue and I could not put it down. I am a bit ashamed to confess I neglected my house until I was done reading it. It was an intense ride that kept you guessing until the end. I loved the characters and I can't wait until the next book in the series comes out. The suspense is killing me. I highly recommend this book if you like crime fiction or just enjoy a good read." - C. Toste
