Read in March, 2010

Really well written mystery set on the Texas-Mexico border! Ivon is a powerful, flawed protagonist and every Spanglish term, every nuance of Ivon's house reminded me of my childhood in Laredo. I wasn't a lesbian while in Laredo (the first time) but the energy, both good and bad, came through each page. Gaspar de Alba sets the plight of the maquiladoras along the border cities to a suspenseful and startling work. An important read for women, Latinos, and law enforcement everhywhere.
