Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Private investigator Sonny Baca, a thirtyish Mexican American with deep cultural roots in New Mexico, uses his developing spiritual powers to halt a vengeful cult leader's rampage. The game-playing bad guy, Raven, who murdered Baca's cousin and supposedly died in a flash flood, challenges Baca by killing a visiting balloonist at Albuquerque's balloon fiesta. Baca's restaurant-owning girlfriend, homeless Hispanics, an exotic curandera, and drug smuggling others add spice. Colorful visuals, sensuous descriptions, and the mythic clash of good and evil result in a thrilling adventure. For all collections.

From Booklist

When a woman dies after falling from a hot-air balloon at Albuquerque's world-famous balloon fiesta, private investigator Sonny Baca's intuition tells him it's murder. His intuition also tells him that the murder is the work of the Raven, the leader of a violent cult that murdered Sonny's cousin, and a man Sonny thought he'd killed. The murder jeopardizes the millions of tourist dollars connected with the fiesta, but Sonny knows the Raven has more on his mind than simple mayhem. This is a completely entertaining mystery novel, but Anaya actually offers two parallel lands of enchantment. One is temporal New Mexico; the other is Nuevo Mexicano, a land of santos, milagros, spirits, visions, and even brujas (witches). It's a land of old ways, old values, and old wisdom. And it's a land where small farms and multigenerational families are fast being wiped out by modernity. Both mystery fans and armchair travelers will enjoy Anaya's second Sonny Baca novel. Readers who love both genres will find it enchanting. Thomas Gaughan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
