“Don’t judge me until you’ve found out what life in Mexico City was really like back then.”

We all face consequential choices that will define our lives.

“My entire family was stuck for generations in that isolated village where I was born. A three hour bus trip up the coast to Veracruz was a risky thought. Not for me. When you’re fourteen, know you are a dreamer and become a damned good schemer, you can’t stay and so you start planning for the day.”

It was in 1941 that Arturo Fuentes followed the beat to Mexico City.

“There was so much going on.”

Bottles of rum in smoke filled bars, sultry women and impassioned conversation, chic restaurants, music, and bright show lights calling. Murder and corruption.

“When a man is moving up he gets to meet all kinds of people in that seductive city. Powerful men who might alter your business prospects or a real dish who will change your life. Without women, life is without drama.”

What can be said of life without love?

“Arturo has goodness in his heart. It is something a girl like me could tell the minute I saw him. He had other girls but Arturo believed in me and he was so easy to love. Exceptional as he was, he could not sense the warning signs a woman does. That pack of important politicos sucked him in! You can’t play their games and then expect to walk away.”

In the dark undercity those consequential choices are not always ours to make?

“It was not of my creation that in a corrupt city there is such pressure on a guy with the guts to chase success. Each day the reasons for quitting got bigger and the ways out got smaller. I had to do what I had to do even if it cost my life. Either that or lose my soul.”

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

If you like film noir, good detective mysteries, historical fiction then this is the book for you. You are required to think and question individual motives of the characters as you read. Lots of twists and turns as new characters are introduced.

*******

The author D. Grant Fitter has written an excellent piece of literature that combines corruption, murder and mayhem all neatly woven, placed, and set within historical 1940’s Mexico City. City Of Promises is an intense story with true to life characters that standout from start to finish.

*******

I read in it less than 2 days. I really felt like I was immersed in Mexico while reading this book. The descriptions are very vivid. Excellent read, would highly recommend it.

*******

A wonderful historical read, the magic of the Golden Age of Mexico City is captured beautifully in every detail of Fitter’s writing. Beautiful and nearly flawless.

*******

I savored this book for its treasury of images, artfully captured in bold and stylish prose. The attention to detail and historical accuracy is remarkable. It was an intellectually stimulating and delightful read.

About The Author

D. Grant Fitter is a citizen of North America. Born in Ontario, Canada and educated in Colorado, USA, he is convinced he was Mexican in his previous life. How else to explain such a strong attraction to Mexico and all things Mexican, including his wife.

His business career includes long stints of work in Mexico before yielding to a pesky urge to pursue freelance journalism for seventeen years. Meanwhile, Fitter’s Mexican roots continued to call. City of Promises is the product of his curiosity to understand why the culture of our close neighbors is so distant from our own.

He lives in Toronto and whenever possible, in a sunny hillside casita in the colonial town of Taxco, Guerrero.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – D. Grant Fitter and ENT appreciate it.

“I love the series, Hot Alphas and Bad Boys, three fast paced short stories filled with intrigue, drama and passion.” -Peggy L.

LUKE

Of all the men in the world, Cailin Walker fell in love with the one she cannot have. The one her sister married.

Billionaire Luke Blackwell made the biggest mistake of his life when he married the wrong Walker sister, but that’s one mistake he intends to rectify.

Cailin’s stayed away for the past three years to fight what she feels.

But all it takes is one drunken mistake for passion to ignite.

Now that they’ve tasted the forbidden, there’s no turning back. They’ll either have to fight the passion threatening to consume them or take a chance and risk losing everything.

Losing it all might just be worthy.

WICKED

Women are disappearing, and NYC police investigator Laurie Cole is sure Alex Volman knows something about it. Unfortunately, he’s not talking — that’s part of the territory when your family tree is loaded with magic and warlocks.

But when Alex learns that the perpetrator has something even worse up his sleeve, he can’t stay silent. He’ll help Laurie, but she’ll have to give as much as she gets.

One night. One ritual. Passion can change everything.

THE LYING GAME

Riley Wellman has a secret. That night she was supposedly lost in a dark street in the middle of nowhere? She wasn’t. She was running away from her future, an unwanted future arranged by her rich family.

Private investigator Evan Sager has a secret too. So when he has to rescue Riley from the bad guys he’s been pursuing for months, he’s not amused.

Now Riley is making him feel things he’s not supposed to feel anymore, and if he can’t manage to keep his hands off her, it might destroy everything he’s worked for. Again.

Molly Miranda- Thief for Hire – Kobo

“It’s tense and smart-alecky. It’s likeable without being sweet. It’s sexy and tough, and as apt to kick you in the pants as to kiss you on the cheek.” -Award-winning author Leo McKay Jr.

Professional, experienced contract burglar.

It’s not exactly something you can put on a business card.

Molly Miranda has made a successful living from “acquiring” valuables and delivering them to clients who pay buckets of cash for her unique services.

So what if she has to lie about her lavish lifestyle in Manhattan and her frequent trips out of the country? Molly has everything under control.

Things go astray when she knocks boots with her charming roommate right before taking off to Scotland with an untrustworthy wildcard on a job assignment that doesn’t go quite as planned.

It doesn’t help that this new partner-in-crime is super annoying. And attractive….

Zeus Is Dead – Nook
Zeus Is Dead – Apple iBooks

“A hilarious, satirical, page-turning romp through a world beset by plagues of monsters, egotistical gods, and reality television shows.” -Seamus Cooper, author

Award-Winning Author

THE GODS ARE BACK. DID YOU MYTH THEM?

You probably saw the press conference. Nine months ago, Zeus’s murder catapulted the Greek gods back into our world. Now they revel in their new temples, casinos, and media empires–well, all except Apollo. A compulsive overachiever with a bursting portfolio of godly duties, the amount of email alone that he receives from rapacious mortals turns each of his days into a living hell.

Yet there may be hope, if only he can return Zeus to life! With the aid of Thalia, the muse of comedy and science fiction, Apollo will risk his very godhood to help sarcastic TV producer Tracy Wallace and a gamer-geek named Leif–two mortals who hold the key to Zeus’s resurrection. (Well, probably. Prophecies are tricky buggers.)

Soon an overflowing inbox will be the least of Apollo’s troubles. Whoever murdered Zeus will certainly kill again to prevent his return, and avoiding them would be far easier if Apollo could possibly figure out who they are.

Even worse, the muse is starting to get cranky.

Memories are like water. Some float on the surface bright and clear. Some lie deeper – blurred by time and distance. Others rest far from the light in the depths of the darkness. These memories are best forgotten. At the bottom of Asylum Lake the unremembered have grown restless.

After the sudden death of his wife, Brady Tanner moves to the small Michigan town where he spent summers as a youth. But he soon learns that small towns can be stained by memories…and secrets too. As Brady is drawn into unearthing the secrets of the town and of the abandoned psychiatric hospital on the shores of Asylum Lake, he discovers a new love in an old friend. But there is an evil presence lurking beneath the waters of the lake. What is the source of this evil–and what does it want with Brady Tanner?
