About this title

Synopsis:

It all starts with the murder of INS agent Kiko Vigil, shot by an unknown gunman in a Larimer Street bar in Denver where he was drinking with the wife of Elias Garza, a major smuggler of illegal immigrants. Private investigator Danny Mora, known to his oldest friends as Moony, is hired by a colleague of Vigil�s to look into the shooting. Did Vigil make the fatal error of sleeping with Garza�s beautiful wife, or is that just a cover story? Was the INS on the verge of ruining Garza�s business? Moony�s quest for the truth leads first to his old nemesis, Garza�s sleazy attorney Victor Delgado. Soon the sleaze factor is surpassed by blood as the bodies begin to pile up. Like Manuel Ramos�s earlier series of crime novels featuring Luis Montez, Moony�s Road is populated by aging idealists who remember the glory days of Chicano activism in the 1970s. This noir thriller tinged with sharp social commentary will attract new fans to an author known as a founder of the Chicano/Latino mystery genre.
