I read MacEnulty's book, Picara, a couple years ago and loved it. I found this one to be just as good, if not better. It's a quick read and hard to put down. I don't see how you can read this book and not love the characters. Suspense, love, and sorrow all in one book...what more could a girl ask for!

Found this quite by accident through a friend and the story sounds torrid and horrible and the characters so wretched I just cannot wait to read it! Oh boy!
