Gabriella Guerrero has been independent ever since she was a little kid doing her best to care for her drug-addicted single mom. Her world changes when her mother dies, and her aunt takes her in. She has to learn everything all over again, especially how to trust her Aunt Isabel. She has to learn how to live with her aunt and her three cousins in the little house in East Los Angeles.

Then she meets Alex Rose. He changes her life. And not for the better.

If her long-term plans bear fruit, one day she may leave the public defender's office to work in private practice. That's where the real money is. She loves being an attorney, except for one little thing. If her wild history surfaces, she will face disbarment.

Gabi has a lot to hide.

Story Line

Life moves on after Pepe’s death. Mario finds himself in Milan running Global Aviation Leasing. The wild ride continues as Pepe’s real self is revealed, and Mario meets yet another woman who will change everything. Who is Lola and what secrets is she hiding? Mario still knows nothing of the mysterious business that his fiancee Olga and Camila are into. Gunfire and Molotov cocktails abound in this romp that cruises into the wild and crazy nineties.

Unable to resist a new challenge, Mario takes on the world of big business. Accepting the position offered by his fiancee Olga Camacho and her sister Camila, Mario takes charge of Global Aviation Leasing, and steps into the chasm left by Pepe Camacho’s death. Dark family secrets tar Mario’s memory of Pepe and color the surprising circumstances of his death. As GAL’s CEO, Mario moves to Rome, but the trouble that has followed him is not far behind.

International jet-setter Mario Luna is a man who has everything, but his glam life comes at a cost. He is haunted by an elusive stalker whose identity has stumped the police and the FBI for years. Burning mansions, car chases, international travel, wild sexual adventures and even a hijacking keep the pace hopping. Everything changes after Mario’s rendezvous with a charming stranger who is not who she pretends to be.

What does Olga’s private eye, Mason, have to say about the exotic stranger Mario has brought into the fold? Is she a viper out for blood or the victim of a conspiracy? Will Mario ever find the puppeteer pulling the strings behind all the threats to his life?

George Hatcher’s seventh book is a provocative maze of dark secrets, and the machinations of a wily and duplicitous agent who sniffs out the truth of a killer.

Story Line

In pursuit of new challenges and dealing with the roller coaster of the eighties, Ambulance chasing jet-setter Mario Luna is a survivor, a lover, and a man of his time. With his crew of lovely girls, he works from Pasadena, flying where planes crash, helping families survive disaster. At his side, we find numbers whiz Jo, former corner girl Pixie, quiet Niley, versatile private eye Tricia, and his partner in pleasure Letty.

Riding the wings of ambition, Mario has turned his gift of gab into a lucrative life. He cannot resist the lure of easy cash. Colombians Pepe, Camila and Olga run the Camacho empire, and with their money to burn, they entice Mario to use his gifts to further the Camacho empire known as LAI, Latin American Enterprises.

Not everyone jumps aboard the Camacho gravy train. Mario’s girlfriend Melina Marron, an entrepreneur in her own right, warns Mario he may be getting caught up in dirty money. Not that Mario is good at listening to advice, especially when he sniffs profits to be made. What is he getting into? One thing is for sure. Mario has come a long way from his two bedroom childhood apartment facing Hollenbeck Park in East Los Angeles.

Story Line

It's the swinging seventies. Free love has swept across California, and gangs are wrangling their share of the East LA pie. Political correctness does not exist. Mario Luna is not only up to his neck in hip, hot California girls; he has pulled out all the stops, and is well on the way to becoming the top ambulance chaser in the county. At least, that's the way it looks until his life turns upside down. Mario's line of work could be making him a little paranoid. At first he thinks someone is following him, then the bodies start dropping. Is a gang thug out of his past after him, or a rival ambulance chaser, or even a rival law firm? Who wants Mario out of the way--and why?

Tap for Book Overview - Mario 2

Story Line

Mario is a bildungsroman, a young adult coming of age story. Mario Luna is a young man growing up in the East Los Angeles of the sixties. He lives with his aunt across from Hollenbeck Park, but this is not your run-of-the mill story. His aunt once stole a million dollars; his best friend is a murderer; his best girl is a hooker; and as for Mario, he leads an interesting life.

This is the journey of a young man of dubious opportunity and unlimited potential. Even in 1959 he wrestles with the same issues as many young people today—how to get pocket money; how to cover up when things at home aren’t exactly what society would like; how to make it through the day/week/month without getting sucked into a gang or killed. The deck might be stacked against him, but Mario doesn’t know it. He's no genius, and hates school with a passion. People think he's a con man, but he's got a gift. The question is how will he use it?

Story Line

Nogales was a small, sleepy town split by the border. Sonora and Arizona, side by side, surrounded by desert, with not much to recommend it but the people. A little mining, a little manufacturing, a few sales to the tourists, a couple of pesos or dollars handed over to a few nearsighted border officials, a little drinking on Saturday night, a little prayer and confession on Sunday morning—it was not a bad life, as long as the residents managed to steer clear of the Sanchez family.

Running an organization that is not quite a gang, not quite a mob, not quite an old crillo family, the Sanchez hacendado is happy as long as the liquor sales are good, the bordellos are flourishing, and he makes a few pennies of every dollar that exchanges hands. The only problem is that pesky midwife Maria and her two very interesting daughters.
