If Haruki Murikami had been born in Mexico and raised in southern Texas, this is the book he would have written. It's futuristic and hallucinogenic look at that region gives us a unique and welcome lens to view the border.

One of my favorite mystery writers,Walter Mosley, says this "Small-town murder investigation reveals what lies at the heart of America's confusion over race." So if you like mysteries, and you're ready for one with a large side of social justice and race issues (and if East Texas has any place in your heart), this is the book for you. I loved black Texas Ranger Darren Matthews. He conflicted, he's tough, and he's got a heart the size of Texas. The issues he's dealing with are real and pressing, and it's a privilege to be entertained and to learn at the same time.
