Justice by Joseph Badal

Justice is the third book in the Matthew Curtis Chronicles by Joseph Badal. 
In this installment Curtis is working for a medical company giving lectures around the world. Lonnie Jackson, a drug dealer who tried to kill Matt and his wife Renee in book two Obsessed has somehow survived and is now in Nicaragua trafficking women.
Matt and his wife, Renee with special forces buddy Esteban and his wife Alani, travel to Costa Rica where Matt is giving one of his speeches.
Lonnie Jackson, now using the name Lorca discovers this and kidnaps Renee and Alani flying them by helicopter to his compound in Nicaragua.
Add in a former KGB operative in Bulgaria shipping girls to Lorca, a senator trying to stamp out human trafficking discovering that the guy in Bulgaria is on the CIA payroll, the CIA trying to cover this up by cutting their losses, and of course Curtis and his friend Esteban getting together with ex special forces guys living in Costa Rica... it makes for one hell of story of them rescuing their kidnapped wives.
If you're into a book that keeps your heart pounding so that you can't put down until you've finished it no matter if it takes all night; this book's for you.
The only drawback to reading all of Badal's books in print is that you can't wait until the next one comes out.

I'm kind of partial the Badal, he lives in New Mexico and he has three books so far dealing with female detectives on the Albuquerque Police Force, and the Curtiss's live in on the East side of Sandia Mountain with Obsessed set in New Mexico. He's also a fb friend.
I've tried a couple of times to attend his books signings in Old Town at Treasure House Books, but there is never any parking on those days. Next time I'll take a bus.
