Description

Detroit ex-cop August Snow takes up vigilante justice when his beloved neighborhood of Mexicantown is caught in the crosshairs of a human trafficking scheme. When the body of an anonymous young Hispanic woman dressed as Queen Marie Antoinette is dredged from the Detroit River, the Detroit Police Department wants the case closed out fast. Wayne County Coroner Dr. Bobby Falconi gives the woman's photo to his old pal August Snow, insisting August show it around his native Mexicantown to see if anyone recognizes her. August's good friend Elena, a prominent advocate for undocumented immigrants, recognizes the woman immediately. Her story is one the authorities don't want getting around-and she's not the only young woman to have disappeared during an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid, only to turn up dead a few weeks later. Preyed upon by the law itself, the people of Mexicantown have no one to turn to. August Snow, ex-police detective, will not sit by and watch his neighbors suffer in silence. In a guns-blazing wild ride across Detroit, from its neo-Nazi biker hole-ups to its hip-hop recording studios, its swanky social clubs to its seedy nightclubs, August puts his own life on the line to protect the community he loves.

Professional reviews

"Luis Moreno masterfully narrates Detroit ex-cop August Snow's second mystery adventure. Snow goes on the offensive when his community, Mexicantown, falls prey to an insidious human trafficking system with roots in immigration enforcement. As the vulnerable are trapped by circumstances, Snow puts his life on the line to rescue them. Moreno's narration blends with the detailed prose to elevate the story to great heights. He captures Snow's unique form of cynicism and breathes life into every character. Dialogue simmers with wit and humor, scenes are laid out in dynamic detail, and the descriptions of food are mouthwatering. The audio experience is incredible in this contemporary noir with heart, humor, and action. J.M.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
