The Hot Country

A Christopher Marlowe Cobb Thriller

A Christopher Marlowe Cobb Thriller: Book #1
By Robert Olen Butler
Narrated by Ray Chase / 10 hours 46 minutes

Christopher Marlowe Cobb (“Kit”), the swashbuckling early 20th-century American newspaper war correspondent, travels to Mexico in April and May of 1914, during that country’s civil war and the American invasion of Vera Cruz.
 But covering the war in enemy territory and in sweltering heat isn’t enough of a challenge for Cobb. Soon, he’s falling in love with a young Mexican laundress, Luisa, who may not be as innocent as she seems, and he’s witnessing the inexplicable attempted sniper assassination of a priest (miraculously, the bullet rebounds off the cross around his neck, leaving him unharmed). Now Cobb is also trying to track down a sniper—and figure out why important German officials are coming into the city in the middle of the night from ammunition ships docked in the port.
 An exciting tale of intrigue and espionage, Butler’s powerful crime-fiction debut is a thriller not to be missed.
