On one side of the border, a murder; on the other, a killer. In between stands Neil Hamel, a woman with a passion for the truth.

"Don't worry, Chiquita" was the Kid's answer to almost everything, and right now Neil Hamel missed the Kid--her part-time lover and car mechanic. Neil had gone to Mexico as a favor to a man she shouldn't be doing favors for, and what it got her was a face-to-face meeting with a corpse, a Mexican lawyer with a diamond pinky ring and a throat slit from ear to ear. Returning home to Albuquerque, Neil couldn't let go of the tangled scheme she had uncovered. Looking for the truth, she finds human predators.

"Neil Hamel is the best thing to happen to criminal investigation since Father Brown. . . . Van Gieson is a classy writer."--Tony Hillerman
