About the Book

César Rosada is on a crusade. Descended from generations of coffee farmers, the former professional athlete turned politician is determined to improve life for the working class of his country.

As Minister of Finance, César is committed to righting decades of corruption, crime, and misguided economic policies, and defending progress made in the fight against the illegal drug trade. He anticipates resistance from those with money, power, and vested interests. However, he now confronts a burgeoning challenge—America’s opioid epidemic. This deadly crisis poses more than the usual conflict between law enforcement and organized crime.

It is a complex and insidious challenge with pervasive and deep-rooted origins. César’s adversaries intent on maintaining the status quo conspire and threaten everything for which he has worked. The stakes are high—a reversion to the days when drug syndicates rule, politicians collude and profit, and the people remain hopelessly trapped in a cycle of poverty.

César is conflicted, but must decide on a course of action. Weighing choices between what is perceived as right versus wrong, he pursues a path that for some is morally ambiguous.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "[...] This political and crime thriller is better than I could have ever imagined. Zubulake is a fantastic author and has the ability to make a book, regardless of the number of pages, pass quickly! Wonderful read!" - Brandi Perry

- "Laura A. Zubulake weaves crime investigation, corruption, and social ills into the story of a man's gritty fight to defend his values and the lives that matter to him. [...] The conflict is developed at multiple levels, from the protagonist's struggle to reconcile his position with his core values, to the opposition he faces from his peers, and then there is the social plague of opioids. [...] The characters are believable, the plot intelligently done, and the prose exquisite. [...] The story is deft and balanced, as entertaining as it is thought-provoking." - R. Oserio


- "[...] This book has every ingredient for a compelling story; crime investigation, political corruption, the fight for your beliefs, and thought-provoking questions to ponder. I highly recommend this superb piece of writing." - L. Jones

- "[...] The novel is intriguing on its own, addresses a gravely concerning problem in today’s world and illustrates some of the difficulties of solving that problem. For going behind the mirror, Zubulake deserves thoughtful attention." - Janet S. Beal


About the Author

Author Laura A. Zubulake
Author Laura A. Zubulake
Laura A. Zubulake worked on Wall Street for many years. It is there she honed her communication skills, business acumen, attention to detail, and sense of intrigue.

Traveling to over 40 countries to explore cultures became about observing and capturing life with her photography and her painting. The history, art, and cuisine of Europe, Latin America, Asia, Russia, and Egypt made impressions. The intellectuality of the Acropolis, the grandeur of the Vatican, the mystery of the Great Sphinx, the incredulity of the Great Wall, the exoticness of the Forbidden City, the magnificence of Iguazu Falls, the natural beauty of America’s west.

For Laura, writing non-fiction is the expression of experiences.

Writing fiction is like painting with words. Slay the Dragon is her debut novel.
