A Latino detective in upstate New York must turn to an immigrant rights activist to solve a murder in "this timely and engrossing" crime thriller (Publishers Weekly). When a body is discovered in a reservoir north of New York City, it ignites a baffling and disturbing murder investigation. The victim is young, female and Hispanic. In her purse, police find a photo of a baby. Where is the child? Is she alive? And what about the disturbing note found at the scene? "Go back to your country. You don't belong here." Homicide detective Jimmy Vega knows how hard it can be to walk the razor-thin line of acceptance in a place like Lake Holly, NY. Reluctantly turning to Adele Figueroa, a passionate defender of immigrants' rights, Vega must confront his small town's darkest secrets and deepest obsessions—before they savagely tear apart the world he's sworn to defend.
