Bad Weeds Never Die

A John Santana Novel

When a blood spattered Mercedes belonging to the daughter of a prominent psychologist is found abandoned, there are few clues to her whereabouts but a million dollars’ worth of reasons why someone might want her dead.

Confronted with a list of suspects––a philandering boyfriend with a checkered past, the victim’s estranged sister who has a penchant for mysteries and drugs, an angry man whose adopted Colombian son committed suicide, and a shady lawyer who can’t be trusted––Santana’s search for answers leads him to the photo of a mysterious woman who may hold the key to solving the crime. But to find her he must return to Colombia and face the ghosts of his past and the man who has vowed to kill him.
