Alex St. Clair about this book: The Mexican Rose is a sum of many parts over a two decade era of living in Mexico, witnessing the geo-political changes and the power shifts that parallel the corrupt governments, local, state and federal. I chose the name after a friend whose experience is also eerily similar to the fictional events in the first book of the House Of Cartels Trilogy. Much research and soul-searching was done. I want to reach and into the hearts and minds on the reader to truly witness the lives of today's Mexican citizenry.
The writing process took over one year plus editing for two months. I chose the cover from a concept I had of morphing the Mexican flag with a bleeding rose the is also morphing into a snake. The conflict of good and evil. I traveled to every location listed and used as a setting in this epic novel. I learned that this is a much more challenging quest from when I first conceived the ideas.
One will laugh, cry and be in suspense as the main protagonist, Rosa Rios, and her sister, Mercedes, take you on a journey criss-crossing Mexico in a harrowing and spiritual journey.
