2014 Texas Assoc. of Authors Best Police/Crime Book

Margarita Ricos is a smart, 25-year-old Latina with attitude, who grew up on the edge of the United States in Terlingua, Texas. There, the peoples and cultures of two countries are blended, not separated, by the once-fierce Rio Grande.

Terlingua is an unincorporated settlement in Brewster County, the largest county in Texas. There are more square miles and mountains than there are inhabitants.

Margarita and her partner, Deputy Barney George, are entrusted with preserving the peace and upholding the law in a land where the flowers and people grow wild.

Crime in south Brewster County is seldom violent, and usually does not come in the form of murder or rape. Yet Norma Bates, a married, middle-aged mother of three, is found dead on her kitchen floor, lying in a pool of blood. There is a single stab wound in her chest.

Deputy Ricos is about to conduct an interview about the murder when she receives a call from Sheriff Ben. He says people from Terlingua are in his office claiming their fourteen-year-old daughter was raped. Since Margarita is young, and known to the girl, perhaps she can get her to open up. The deputy is stunned by the sheriff’s news. Murder—and now rape—what is going on?

As the deputies work to solve both crimes, a sinister presence approaches Margarita in her home in the dark. Is it a murder suspect, the unknown rapist, or a different kind of threat altogether?
