Early reviews say: The Hydra Effect is a great first novel—a romantic thriller that takes PI JadeAnne Stone and her dog Pepper deep into Mexico and deeper into trouble. Funny, sexy, hip, tragic—and replete with gorgeous scenes of gracious dining, The Hydra Effect gets an extra jolt from Manwaring’s deft unraveling of a complex criminal conspiracy—Clark Lohr, The Devil’s Kitchen.
