The Governor’s Wife

“Mark Gimenez delivers another powerful thriller with his latest release The Governor’s Wife. . . . Gimenez has built a solid reputation for being a skilled storyteller and in this latest release he kicks things up a notch, intensifying the action, increasing the emotion and going all in with a plot that twists and turns, and creating multi-layered, captivating characters that are impossible not to care about.”
Houston Press

“Here’s a heady mix of drugs, sex, politics and gunfights played out in a modern Texas, a big tale that gallops along at mustang pace. . . . Mark Gimenez already has a reputation as a fine thriller writer and doesn’t disappoint here. . . . VERDICT: HEADED FOR THE BESTSELLER LIST.”
The Courier-Mail (Australia)

“The book is a breathtaking read.” (South Africa)

“The no-man’s land hugging the Mexican border with the United States forms the pivotal area for plot. An ambitious politician; his estranged wife; a scheming political advisor; the politician’s mistress; a missionary doctor, ruthless lobbyists and a vengeful Mexican druglord, the story has all the elements in their best to keep you turning pages. . . .The biggest player, history, is least mentioned but is the most powerful driving force. The Governor’s Wife is a reflection of the distribution of good and bad within us. Each character is carefully constructed with enough attention paid to detail to ensure the seamless flow of the story without compromising on the suspense. Each of them is faced with difficult choices as their personal lives are intertwined with bigger affairs in the making.”

“Politics, drug lords, the rich, the poor, racism, sex, love and hate . . . The Governor’s Wife has a bit of everything. . . . Mark Gimenez keeps the story cracking along at a furious pace.” — Wairarapa Times-Age (New Zealand).

“An intense, exciting read.”
The Citizen (South Africa)

“The State of Texas is a world unto itself, and nowhere is more grimly fascinating than the corridor of badlands where the Lone Star meets the Mexican border. It is a constant source of material for novelists, politicians, environmentalists to name but a few. Here bestselling writer Mark Gimenez takes on the Grisham mantle with a politico-legal-romantic thriller that fairly whips along. . . . You can see the movie coming a mile away, and it’ll be a cracker.”
The Melbourne Review (Australia)

“He’s been described in parts of the media as the next Grisham but Mark Gimenez’s sixth novel, The Governor’s Wife, zeroes in on a larger-than-life political and family drama set in Texas . . . . As the Governor of Texas, Bode Bonner has it all but a ticket to the White House and a wife willing to play second fiddle to his rapidly expanding ambitions . . . . Just as the cut-throat tactics set the pace for a final showdown, the unexpected depth presented by both governor and wife makes for a compelling, if slightly unusual, love story.”
