In Malibu, Art Gallery owner Rebecca Powell hires her former college roommate private security expert Hannah Nicks to deliver a painting to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Suspicious about the nature of the assignment as a courier is not her normal job; thirty year old former LAPD cop Hannah accepts the contract because she needs the lucrative fee.

Before she leaves town to transport the painting, FBI agents visit Hannah. However, although wary about the job even more so than before she delivers the art to arms dealer Moises Gladding. There is only one slight issue at the destination point; his home is loaded with dead bodies. Back home more corpses follow in Hannah’s wake. Soon international law enforcement officials like former Scotland Yard Art Recovery Detective Teagarden want to question Hannah, whose only assignments at the moment are staying alive and keeping family members safe although she begins o explore what she really delivered to the home of Gladding.


Romantic suspense fans will fully enjoy this strong thriller due to a powerful cast starring in an exciting story line. Hannah with her first person account gives the tale a momma Noir (her son Gabe lives with his father) feel to the crime caper and subsequent murder frenzy. The support characters are solid and the twists and spins keep on coming, but THE NIGHT CAFÉ belongs to the heroine who understands the mantra “People remember pain”.
