Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Lantigua's gripping fourth novel featuring Miami PI Willie Cuesta (after 2007's The Lady from Buenos Aires), Carmen Vickers de Estrada, who moved to Miami from Medellín, Colombia, to escape the threat of kidnapping, asks Cuesta, who's been serving as security chief for his brother's nightclub, to protect her son, José, and his girlfriend, Catalina Cordero. Two years earlier in Colombia, Carmen's husband was killed resisting abduction, and a year later, José was held captive for seven months even after the ransom was paid. After only a few days on the job, Cuesta witnesses a team of men snatch Carmen from a car blocked on a Key Biscayne road. Cuesta's quest to rescue Catalina, whose relationship with her captors is unclear, takes him to Colombia. The fast-paced action is well matched by concise prose, making this a treat for Elmore Leonard devotees. (Mar.)

Review

"The fast-paced action is well matched by concise prose, making this a treat for Elmore Leonard devotees." --Publishers Weekly

"This thoroughly entertaining crime novel flirts with a number of the genre's central themes: kidnapping for ransom, drug dealing, betrayal, revenge, the silky seductiveness of a whole lot of money...a real find for crime-fiction fans" --Booklist Starred Review

John Lantigua brings a textured real-life feel to "On Hallowed Ground," featuring sharply drawn characters. It's an absorbing read and brings the reader to the mansions of glitzy Key Biscayne and to the gritty neighborhoods of Medellin, Colombia, which he paints accurately with deft and colorful brush strokes. You'll develop empathy for some of these characters, and the plot is compelling with unexpected twists. HBO or another cable channel ought to keep their eye on Willie Cuesta for a possible series!

Format: Paperback
Another Willie Cuesta mystery takes you through the steamy underworld of Miami, with lots of twists and turns, and dark comedy. The best John Lantigua noir since The Lady From Buenos Aires.

Great read! This was one of those mysteries you can't put down because you need to know what happens all the way to the end. It was a fun ride through South Florida & Medellin, Colombia with the charming Willie Cuesta, private eye, as your tour guide. I highly recommend it!
