Gordan Hudde former Army ranger and current CIA covert operative needed time to relax. A beach vacation in Mexico seemed an ideal get away; he never thought he would meet the love of his life there. He never thought that he would find peace and family; he never thought it.
Gordan Hudde also never thought about violent street gangs, cartel run Governments, or the politics within America that allowed the problems south of their border to fester.
But they forced Gordan to think about these things, they brought him to this point and forced him to make a decision. They can’t take it back now.
This violent, cinematic second entry in the Gordon Hudde Novel Series shows promise, with its surprisingly original plot, and despite a dauntingly large cast of characters. Gordan Hudde is a reclusive former soldier and CIA operative seeking to put his battle-scarred past behind him when he meets Isabella Santiago a beautiful woman who works at a Mexican beach resort restaurant. Their tender romance, ultimately shattered by street gangs and drug cartels, proves to be the most compelling storyline. The author’s over-reliance on Mexican stereotypes, however, borders on offensive.

Having thoroughly enjoyed A Deep Purple Hue last month, I was eager to immerse myself once again in the life of Gordan Hudde. An Angry Orange Sky sees Gordan Hudde taking a well earned rest in Mexico. Although Hudde by his nature is never at rest and is constantly on high alert.
I found this book a little harder to get into as I'm not terribly interested in Mexican drug cartels and always find it hard to identify one Juan from another; needless to say there is lots of shouting and shooting as rival gangs go up against each other. There is also a lot of detail as every hour, mile and metre is specified - I found it a bit off-putting at first but I soon got used to it as my brain adjusted to not having to remember every single number stated.
About half way through we start to see the sensitive side to Hudde as a pretty Mexican lady catches his eye. He is soon drawn into the bosom of her family and considers putting down roots south of the border. He just has a few Mexicans to sort out before he and Isabella can live happily ever after. Will they drive off into the sunset or get caught in the crossfire?
With plenty of shocks and surprises, An Angry Orange Sky does not disappoint and I have no doubt that we will be hearing a lot more from Gordan Hudde, at least I certainly hope so!
I received this e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
