Now available for the first time in paperback, readers can discover, or rediscover, Lucha Corpi’s dynamic detective, Gloria Damasco, in the classic novel that started it all. A Chicano Civil Rights march has been disrupted by the Los Angeles police, resulting in the gruesome death of a prominent reporter. The tear gas has barely settled when a small, defiled body is left on a street in Los Angeles. A feisty political activist finds the murdered child and begins a search for the murderer that will lead her on a trail of international conspiracy and bloody vengeance. Before long, two other people are dead, and Gloria is determined to piece the mystery together. Adding to the mystery is Gloria Damasco’s dark gift, a puzzling extra-sensory awareness that forces her to confront situations in which solutions demand more than reason and logic.
