About this product
- DescriptionShakedown unveils the hidden faces of power through the history of Carolina, Susana, Lorena and Tanya, four strong women very close to the world's decision makers against the backdrop of Mexican politics. It is a vel rich in conspiracies, romantic capers, international corruption, complicity, dangers, secrets and the shadiest side of power. Throughout the plot, the four girls unravel mysteries of the country's public life and world politics, after receiving a unique message that reinforces their complicity, illuminates their passions and builds a strong friendship adventure. The boundaries between politics and its personalities, as well as personal travails and zest, meet in a single story full of nuances, where in the end all the pieces fit. A thought-provoking, albeit humorous read. Erica Fuentes' extraordinary ability to write between the lines shows her deep kwledge of her subject: power and world politics from within. Shakedown's first edition in Spanish, Las Chicas de Palacio, was abruptly withdrawn from the market despite holding fast among the top 10 best-selling books in Mexico, from its release. Was it because it hit a raw nerve? In Mexico? In the Middle-East, or perhaps in Europe or in the United States itself? You be the judge.
- Author BiographyA successful attorney and author of several non-fiction books before bursting into the world of mainstream fiction, Erica Fuentes has delighted her readers with tales of intrigue, romance and international politics beginning in 2000 with her release of Island Dreams, followed by Miguel's Cantina (First Love), A Window To Paradise, and Hearts Ahoy! in 2002. Shakedown, released in Spanish in June 2007, with the title Las Chicas de Palacio is currently being adapted into a screenplay and holds fast on the best seller list in Mexico. All of Erica's novels have been published simultaneously in two versions: English and Spanish. Her latest novel, Salve Regina, the first of a three book series co-authored with Annemarie Stonewater, released in December 2010, promises to be another best-seller by the author. After many years abroad carrying out diplomatic and corporate assignments, Fuentes currently lives in her beach home somewhere...
