Debut Novel Pulls Double Duty: Thrilling Adventure Story & Love Letter to Tequila

From new author Greg Prosmushkin, ‘Tequila Assassin: Malinalli Way’ is the rollicking, often humorous tale of former United States Special Forces agent Jack Fleming. Traveling across Mexico, Fleming sees into the darkest corners of the human heart, encountering violent drug lords and a few bottles of tequila. Early readers have praised Prosmushkin’s electrifying writing, ‘bad-ass’ main character and complex, suspenseful plotlines.


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- Greg Prosmushkin is the co-founder of Malinalli Extra Anejo Tequila and now, he’s an author too.

With the publication of ‘Tequila Assassin: Malinalli Way’, Prosmushkin has combined his two favorite things – writing, and the smooth, vibrantly tasty liquor. In his debut novel though, Jack Fleming – not tequila - is the star. Former agent for the United States Special Forces, Fleming finds himself in a Mexican prison and faces a choice between certain death or a grand adventure.

Spoiler alert: Fleming chooses the adventure, and fans couldn’t be happier.

“The buzz since the release of the book has been fantastic,” says Prosmushkin. “It’s gratifying to hear how entertained readers have been by my work, and how much they enjoyed traveling with Jack and exploring the gritty side of Mexico. We all hear stories about the drug cartels, and we know how dangerous they can be – but Jack gets right in there and begins to question everything he knew about the law. It’s a fascinating thing – a guy who used to believe he was on ‘the right side of the law’ and now – he’s not sure.”

Prosmushkin invites readers to grab a wedge of lime, a saltshaker and their favorite tequila and settle in – this is one book they won’t be able to put down until they reach the final page.

When Jack Fleming, former agent for the United States Special Forces finds himself in a Mexican prison, he faces the choice between certain death behind bars and starting the greatest adventure of his life: an adventure that will lead him across Mexico in pursuit of cash, drug lords, and the truth.

His options being limited, Jack finds himself deep in the dangerous world of the Alacran drug cartel. As his journey leads him across the landscape of Mexico, Jack learns that he may not be on the side of the law after all, and that the “Law” itself may not be as simple and straightforward as it seems.

In a story packed with intrigue and murder, a brilliant adventure emerges which brings to light the true depth of human depravity, and the surprising goodness that can be found in even the darkest places.

Since its publication, the book has earned a 5-star rating on Amazon, and glowing reviews from readers.

“This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. The book has everything to captivate your imagination sex, violence, suspense. I give it two thumbs up. This author has a way with words LOVED the book,” wrote Marlene Schmidt.

Praising the “non-stop entertainment”, Shaun Hurley wrote: “A fun, fast paced adventure that keeps you entertained the whole way. I had to look up the story of Malinalli afterwards and, although I'm not really a tequila fan, I'm prepared to hunt down a bottle to try it and see how exciting life gets :)”

“Bought this book this morning and haven't put it down since. From the first chapter, you're literally thrust into the crazy tequila induced world of Jack Fleming. Without wasting anytime, Prosmushkin's book jumps right into the action and sets the tone for what I imagine is going to one wild ride. Can't wait to see what happens next. Must read,” wrote Jeff.

S. Gallardo wrote: “This was absolutely a fun, five star read. It was fast-paced from the start and I love that it's written in the first person. Reading the book was like watching the movie with a narrator. The narrative was descriptive and well-written and the dialogue was clever with a hard edge. Jack reminds me a bit of John McClane from the Die Hard flicks. The character Jack, is a bad-ass and what happens to him and what he's going to do about it keeps you turning the page. It was humorous as well in all the right places. Well done!”
