About this title

Synopsis:

Latina detective Romilia Chacón is a marvelous heroine, one who clings to her heritage, her son, and a determination to do her new job in Los Angeles better than anyone else. She has to–because inside the FBI, Romilia is the only link to a legendary criminal who may have just taken down one of their own....

FBI agent Chip Pierce was found poisoned, a single word–cabrón–carved into his stomach. The only suspect is the infamous Tekún Umán, a seductive and brilliant Guatemalan drug dealer who once got under Romilia’s skin–and never quite left. Now, skirting official regulations to begin a personal hunt for Tekún, Romilia will stumble into a world where terror, fanaticism, and murder collide. What awaits her is a shocking new evil–and the ultimate threat to everything she holds dear.
