About this title

Synopsis:

When Filomena Buscarsela takes her teen-aged daughter to see their extended family in Ecuador, it's more than a homecoming. Filomena hasn't been back in years, and the trip brings back memories of her previous life there as a revolutionary. Strangest of all, people keep asking her if her lover--who died in a hail of police gunfire in front of her very eyes--is alive.
And then a priest is murdered, a man who years ago saved her life and helped her escape to America. It's an election year, and the dirty hand of politics seems to be everywhere, perhaps even in this senseless death. Filomena's investigation promises to lead her back to the very people she escaped, all those years ago.

All in all, Wishnia provides a compelling look at the provenance of one of mystery fiction's most dynamic heroines.
