Day of the Dead

Availability: Ready to download

When a man is shot to death in his house near Albuquerque's Old Town, homicide detective Chris Gutierrez is called to the scene with fellow detective Dale Harper to investigate. They soon discover that the murder victim may have been involved in human trafficking over the Mexican border, and that he may have attracted enemies in an underground network with its own code of When a man is shot to death in his house near Albuquerque's Old Town, homicide detective Chris Gutierrez is called to the scene with fellow detective Dale Harper to investigate. They soon discover that the murder victim may have been involved in human trafficking over the Mexican border, and that he may have attracted enemies in an underground network with its own code of honor. Did someone in that network kill him? Or did his past finally catch up with him? As Chris works to find answers, she also draws the attention of a local anti-immigrant blogger who will go to any length to post damaging and personal information about Albuquerque law enforcement officers, and she knows that her partner, prosecutor Dayna Carson, will be part of that campaign if the blogger discovers their relationship. She has to find a way to watch her back and keep Dayna and her friends and family safe from the blogger's large audience and prying eyes, even as he dogs her every move. From Albuquerque to El Paso, Chris is on the trail of a killer who seems to be able to disappear into the cultures on either side of the border, like a ghost or desert wind. Those along the border protect their own, Chris knows, but she has a job to do, even as she draws closer and realizes that sometimes, things aren't what they seem.

    I enjoyed this more than the previous book simply because it was about Chris, and her character (and partner) are more enjoyable for me as central characters than KC and Sage. Chris' relationship with Dayna advances, although the book could have used more Chris/Dayna interaction, Dayna always seems to get short shrift. KC and Sage played their roles nicely, and Abuelita has a bigger role, which was nice. The main problem with this story is that the 'mystery' revolves around an unlikable victim, a I enjoyed this more than the previous book simply because it was about Chris, and her character (and partner) are more enjoyable for me as central characters than KC and Sage.

KC and Sage played their roles nicely, and Abuelita has a bigger role, which was nice. The main problem with this story is that the 'mystery' revolves around an unlikable victim, and doesn't really go anywhere at all, which is especially problematic since we had to wade through so much of it. Also there's a blogging storyline which we waste a lot of time on, but nothing comes of it. Honestly, I'm not sure what the point of this storyline was, I'm hoping there will be some continuation of these plots in the next story, but these books should really be stand alone. Also the formatting is off again in this book, there are several instances where multiple people are talking in one block, and it's just confusing. How hard is it for these to be formatted properly? For this price I expect more.

    Another great book in this series! This book is based on Chris Gutierrez point of view (other books alternates with K.C Fontero). Engrossing read until right to the end. The mystery has been very well written and the topic of people smuggling well researched. It was great to see familiar characters from the previous books.
