To escape the awful life she has descended into, Luz plans carefully. She takes only the clothes on her back, a Colt .45, and all the money in her husband's safe. The corpses in the hallway weren't part of her plan.

Luz needs to find the daughter she left behind years earlier, but she knows she may die trying. Her husband isEl Principe, a key player in a high-powered drug cartel, a business he runs with the same violence he has used to keep Luz his perfect, obedient wife.

Editorial Reviews

"He's writing about the outcasts and fringe dwellers, and doing so with grace and beauty...This thriller keeps the tension building from the opening scene through the heart-wrenching conclusion...This is a novel full of thrills, grit and often sadness - a novel that should be at the top of any thriller or crime fan's reading list this summer. Lange's the real deal, whatever label you choose for him."-The Omaha World-Herald
