About the Book: The Governor's Wife

He longs for one more moment of excitement, one more challenge. Lindsay Bonner is Bode's wife, and she's bored too. Bored of Bode's womanizing, bored of the endless cocktail parties and receptions. She is desperate to break free of her bland, wealthy Texan lifestyle. And that moment comes when she saves a poor Hispanic boy's life. From that moment on, nothing will be the same for Bode and Lindsay Bonner. Their lives are about to change in ways they could never have predicted. Filled with dramatic and ingenious
twists and turns, this is an addictively readable novel that delves deep into the dark heart of Texas
About the Author: Mark Gimenez
Mark Gimenez grew up in Galveston County, Texas. Once a partner at a major Dallas law firm, Gimenez gave it up in order to start his own solo practice and to write. He lives in Texas with his wife and two sons.
"Gimenez delivers an authentically creepy debut novel. A big part of this thriller's appeal is its moral backbone. This is a well-calibrated contemporary morality play, set in get-rich-quick Dallas, with tours of country clubs and gated communities, and knowledgeable forays into Darwinian legal tactics. Gimenez also gives us a hateful character who becomes more sympathetic the more he fails. Fast-paced and thought provoking fare."-Booklist
"New author and former lawyer Mark Gimenez, a Texan, has written a riveting story about the corruption of the law. Gimenez matches up to biggies like John Grisham and Scott Turow, with a thrilling tale of how the law actually works."-Calgary Sun
"Gimenez has written a startling, multilayered thriller in which complex characters and a fast-moving plot grab the reader immediately. Smart dialog and a spunky Gracie, who never loses her cool, make for a memorable read that twists and turns until the final, cinematic conclusion."-Library Journal
