Synopsis:

At once a painful coming-of-age novel, an exciting amateur sleuth tale and an intriguing narrative involving social issues (immigration and wealth disparity), Money Matters has mystery at its core. This emotionally charged debut novel is firmly embedded in Los Angeles culture over the 2010 mid-term election. Jenny, the 27-year-old inexperienced protagonist, faced with the tragic disappearance of a friend, is forced to take on financial tycoons, corrupt politicians and the treacherous Baja drug cartel in her search to uncover the truth. Jenny’s investigation takes her into the twilight world of undocumented immigrants, which leads her to seek the help of the handsome director of an immigrant rights organization to whom she is strongly attracted. But will the deadly enmity of the rich and powerful thwart her search and end her budding romance?

From the Author:  “While I have written seven nonfiction books, this is my debut novel. It is the product of many revisions that have enabled me to combine a detective mystery plot-line with reflections on the state of American society, concentrating particularly on issues of immigration and disparity in wealth. As an immigrant myself I included two major characters who are immigrants, though not from Europe but from Mexico, who encounter  problems with documentation that have become so common today. I also drew on what Jung calls my “anima” to create my young female protagonist and narrator, a millennial who undergoes a late coming-of-age in the course of her investigation into a woman’s disappearance.”
