"A breathtaking read." ­ (South Africa)

"It could have been the kiss of death‹to be described as the next John
Grisham‹but so far Mark Gimenez has dodged the bullet.  The Texas lawyer has
quietly carved his own path, seemingly unworried about any expectations
triggered by his debut thriller making the New York Times bestseller list.
He writes legal thrillers‹good ones.  His latest novel, The Governor's Wife,
however, is not set in a courtroom but rather the governor's mansion in
Texas and the no-man's land on the border of Texas and Mexico.  His hero is
not a smart, quick-stepping lawyer but a jaded governor, set for life in his
home state but who hankers after the adrenaline rush of one more political
adventure, a tilt at the White House. . . . Gimenez's dialogue breathes
street cred, his characters are larger than life, almost bigger than Texas,
but it is the state itself that is pivotal.  His books exude Texas.
Violence hovers like the acrid whiff of gunpowder after the fatal shot.
Here it explodes into massacre and betrayal in the raw world of illegal
immigration, drug cartels and politics." ­ Dominion Post Weekend (New

"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." ­ The Courier-Mail (Australia)

"The no-man¹s 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 politician¹s mistress; a missionary doctor,
ruthless lobbyists and a vengeful Mexican drug lord, 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
Governor¹s 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."  -- Postnoon

"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. . . . 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 it¹ll be a
cracker." ­ The Melbourne Review (Australia)

"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."  - The National (Dubai)

Yet another GOOD one from Mr. Gimenez
By Jason Frost
Mark Gimenez is easily one of the quietest authors out there. He doesn't have a FaceBook, Twitter, and his website is pretty regular. I've eMailed him a few times and he has graciously responded, but he's not a "talker". So that's why I was surprised to see that he had a "new" book out... and it's been out since November. Whhaaaatttt!?!?! I go after books like I buy iPhone apps; 100 pure impulse I usually buy what I don't need. The difference here is that I NEED to read Mark. Every author after a while usually puts out a book that is good but not great. After six books, Mark has yet to do so.

This man is one hell of a magnificent writer!

And this is one hell of a book!

Let me address one thing first before I get to this book... there is a review on here that isn't entirely true. While I will admit that this book is HEAVILY political (especially in the beginning), but a "liberal political diatribe about the evils of the establishment and the wonders of illegal immigration" it is not. I don't know where Mark's politics lie (and I really don't care) but I don't think it's possible to tell with this book. Oh you can speculate, but I would expect that you would only see it through your eyes. If you're a Conservative then you will see the hero in Governor Bode. If you're a Liberal then you'll see Governor Bode as the devil himself. If you're a booklover then you'll put all that ish aside and just thoroughly enjoy another book from Mr. Gimenez.

`The Governor's Wife' is a very, very, very, very good read. Bode Bonner is the governor of Texas and proud of it. (Come to think of it, have you ever met anyone who was from Texas and wasn't proud of it?) Anywho... he has the thankless job of having to deal with illegal immigration, drug running, re-election, hoping against all hope that his dream of running for President will somehow come to fruition, and keeping time with one extremely hot assistant. If Edward Lorenz thought that little butterfly did something, he needs to jump ahead in time to see what happens on John Ed's ranch. What happens there will infuriate some people, make some people cheer, and others (like me) wonder how long it will take before it hits the fan.

So Bode's dream of running for President becomes a reality... overnight. And he would be a shoe-in except for a few things: 1. the incident at the ranch 2. His wife 3. His extremely hot assistant 4. El Diabolo. Other than that it would be a breeze. Mark has always had the ability to write a complex plot with his stories, but he ratchets it up a notch with this book. You wonder how a poor doctor, Super PAC's, illegal immigration, assassins, toned co-ed butts (have mercy), and Irish wives can possible come together to create a story that makes sense. Well, Mark did and it does.

And still... for the life of me I don't know why the American publishers don't pick up this guy! I am glad to see that his books are available in e-format but I would love to carry his work (other than his first two books) in my bookstore. Getting excited about an author is par for the course when you love books, but STAYING excited about an author is what makes reading so much fun.

A terrific Texas political thriller
By Paul Mastin
I have read alll of Mark Gimenez's books, and have not been disappointed in one yet. His latest, The Governor's Wife, continues his streak of winners. As Gimenez's readers have come to expect, he pays close attention to setting the stage, bringing the story's locations alive. He develops the characters skillfully and draws the reader along, revealing just enough at just the right times, giving us people and a story to care about.

The governor in The Governor's Wife, Bode Bonner, bears an uncanny resemblance to our real life "governor for life," down to his connection to George W. Bush and his penchant for hunting small game while jogging (in self-defense, of course). There are plenty of biographical differences to avoid a defamation suit, but the personality is certainly inspired by Perry. (By the way, I couldn't help feeling like Gimenez is no fan of Gov. Perry!) While he is trying to figure out how to get noticed on the national stage, looking to follow in GWB's footsteps, his wife is bored and neglected, aware of Bonner's affair with his aide, and seeking meaning outside of photo ops and the public eye.

She finds satisfaction in assisting a doctor in the colonias along the border. Her training as a nurse and her compassionate spirit fit right in with the saintly doctor, who was born in the colonia, went to Harvard Medical School, and returned to the border to provide health care. She happens to assist in saving the life of the son of Mexican drug lord, then her husband happens to shoot the same son, leading the governor to the national stage he has longed for. At the same time, the Democratic party leadership think they've found the perfect candidate to oppose Bonner in the race for governor, a certain border doctor who happens to be falling in love with the governor's wife.

Gimenez weaves these connections into a believable, readable story, with, yes, some melodrama, but, hey, it's fiction! Throughout we're also treated to more political and social commentary than I remember in Gimenez's other books. Gimenez is pretty clearly a Democrat, but he gives enough time to the characters that other perspectives are treated fairly. I especially liked the Mexican perspective. As he conveyed the history of Texas and Mexico from the perspective of the Mexicans, he almost had me convinced that we should cede Texas back to Mexico. OK, not really, but it's interesting to hear their side of the story, too.

All in all, The Governor's Wife is a highly enjoyable, can't-put-it-down thriller. Highly recommended!

A political thriller - not as good as his other books
By Suncoast
Mark Gimenez is a talented author and I have really enjoyed his other legally targeted books. This book is more a political thriller, and IMHO not a very good or believable one.

There is great theatre in political thrillers set in the U.S. because the political and constitutional system is so complex and flawed that it allows authors a wide range of creativity. This time I think that Gimenez has gone too far with this creativity. While I am Australian, I closely follow U.S. politics because of the impact the US on the rest of the world, especially over the last very crucial 4 years.

The main character is a larger than life Republican Texas Governor with the ethics and morals of a tom cat, whose testosterone drives him to govern Texas like a cowboy from the Wild West. His political excesses and lies force his wife to move out of the Governor's mansion to make her mark on the world. She goes to work as a nurse on the border with Mexico where abject poverty goes side by side with the wealth and cruelty of the local drug cartel.

When hunting wildlife on a Texas billionaire's private ranch, the Governor's philosophy is expressed clearly - "Shit, let's kill something, see if that'll perk up our spirits." In the end he doesn't kill any game but instead kills 4 Mexicans youths tending a hidden cannabis plantation on the ranch who are about to rape a young Mexican girl. One of the youths is the son of the head of the drug cartel, who vows to kill the Governor in revenge.

Overnight, because of his actions, the Governor becomes a national hero and starts to believe that God has ordained that he could be the next President of the USA. His philosophy is "Buying control of the U.S. government is man's work, like coaching football and destroying the economy". During fundraising for PAC money for a Presidential campaign, a billionaire donor wants to know what he can get for his money - "I want to have sex with my mistress in the Governor's Mansion in the same bed Sam Houston slept in."

I am not questioning the politics involved (others who live in the U.S. are more qualified to do that), only the credibility and believability of the characters and the plot. It was very hard to rate this book. The writing put it near the 4 star level, but the story and crediblity put it at 2 star or below. Because of my respect for Mark Giminez as an author, I compromised at 3 stars.
