~The Library Journal, (Starred Review)
Addiction starts like a sweet lullaby sung by a trusted loved one. It washes away the pains of the day and wraps you in the warmness of the womb where nothing hurts and every dream is possible. Yet soon enough, this warm state of bliss becomes a cold shiver, the ecstasy and dreams become nightmares, yet we can't stop listening to the lullaby. We crave to hear the siren song as it rips us apart.
Six stories: three novellas, three novelettes, written by a powerful list of talent, all featuring the insidious nature of addiction--damaged humans craving for highs and wholeness but finding something more tragic and horrific on the other side.

"A plunge into the agony and the ecstasy, the inescapable nightmare of addiction." ~ALMA KATSU, author of The Deep and The Hunger
No one personifies the FTW rock-and-roll ethic better than the Man in Black. Johnny Cash’s music can be captured in that one iconic photograph. Guitar slung off his shoulder, sneer on his lips, middle finger extended to let the status quo know what he thought of it. Which is why Cash’s music speaks to so many of the marginalized, the forgotten, the misunderstood, the disen-franchised.
Featuring some of today’s best crime fiction writers, Just to Watch Him Die is a kick-ass collection of wronged men and women who, like Johnny, walk the line every day, fighting for what they believe is right.
La frontera is full of stories. Real stories, not the ones you see in the news. The border is a powerful place where countries collide. It’s a weird space of dreams, struggles, promises, lies, fear, and redemption. It’s a multicultural and bilingual space where people know that hustling to protect your loved ones or offer them a better life is a drive strong enough to blur ethical codes. Sadly, the border is also a place where drugs make people a lot of money, corruption stains everything, and violence fills the landscape with danger and ghosts. Now, some of today's most talented authors will visit this space from their perspective—showing the world what they see on both sides.
In a landmark anthology, acclaimed author Gabino Iglesias presents 15 stories from an incredibly talented and diverse roster of authors that look at all aspects of border crime—immigration, law, trafficking (both human and narcotics), and everyone trying to exploit the divide for their own benefit. Thought-provoking, shocking, violent, raw, emotional, and unforgettable,BOTH SIDES will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about borders, both domestic and international.

Now you can take this experience home and read about it in solitude rather than solitary.
Santa Muerte, protegeme...
Austin, Texas. Tu t'appelles Fernando, et tu es mexicain. Immigré clandestin. Profession ? Dealer. Un beau jour... Non, oublie " beau ". Un jour, donc, tu es enlevé par les membres d'un gang méchamment tatoués qui ont aussi capturé ton pote Nestor. Pas ton meilleur souvenir, ça : tu dois les regarder le torturer et lui trancher la tête. Le message est clair : ici, c'est chez eux.
Fernando croit en Dieu, et en plein d'autres trucs. Fernando jure en espagnol, et hésite à affronter seul ses ennemis. Mais avec l'aide d'une prêtresse de la Santería, d'un Portoricain cinglé et d'un tueur à gages russe, là oui, il est prêt à déchaîner l'enfer !
Écartelé entre deux pays, deux cultures, deux traditions, Fernando est un antihéros des temps modernes. Quand toutes les frontières se brouillent, seul un nouveau genre littéraire peut dessiner le paysage. Gabino Iglesias invente donc ici le barrio noir. Il y conjugue à merveille douleur et violence de l'exil, réalisme social et mysticisme survolté, mélancolie et humour dévastateur.
