The Key to Cabo is tongue in cheek satire, not a serious crime story as the genres listed imply.
Rock Pounder, secret agent, adventurer.
Penelope Dickens Frost, publisher
The main character's name, Rock Pounder, should alert readers right away that this is a piece of fluff. Rock is a rough and tumble undercover agent working through 'The Fat Man'. In this caper he and additional mercenary type agents are to enter Mexico to recover $250,000,000 in cash and turn it over to the US government for a ten percent finder's fee. They are thwarted at every turn by drug cartel killers and a rogue DEA agent.
If Rock spent more time thinking about getting the money and less on getting in Penelope's panties he would have been much richer but hornier.
If the reader is an anti-sex purist this story is not for them. The sex scenes are not graphic but they are somewhat detailed.
Once Rock gets Penelope into bed and pounds her (Pound-her, get it) his little head overrides his big head and he become so involved in pounding that he does dumb things and lets Penelope get captured by the bad guys. When Rock isn't drinking or pounding he's smoking high grade pot.
The editing is okay but there are several wrong words used and a few other errors. Sentence structure is okay.
Internal thoughts are treated as dialog instead of being italicized.
Past and present tense are mixed in many sentences or paragraphs.
The story is entertaining but not a great read. I'd rate it a 3.5 but that isn't possible so it gets upgraded to a 4.0 rating.
