The Second Letter
Jake is contracted to retrieve a stolen letter that is a vestige from the cold war era. The letter is in possession of Raydel Escobar, who owns three Tamps Bay nightclubs. Jake and Kathleen attend a fundraiser at Escobar’s, where Kathleen instantly forms a relationship with Escobar’s wife, Sophia, and Jake succumbs to Escobar’s charm. As Jake and Garrett pursue the inscrutable Escobar, they discover he is involved in far more than nightclubs. In his reckless pursuit of the letter, Jake stumbles upon a human trafficking ring. He is soon battling to save lives, and to make sense of a second letter, lost for over 50 years.
Part mystery, part romance, and stuffed with the witty repartee that would become Lane’s trademark, The Second Letter resonates with timeless themes.
