Free (nook/Kindle) El Gavilan by Craig MacDonald [Immigrant Murder Mystery/Drama]
El Gavilan by Craig MacDonald is a politically current murder mystery/crime thriller drama about the local and regional tensions surrounding the rape & murder of a woman in the US-Mexican border area, free courtesy of publisher Adams Media's Tyrus crime imprint.
Free @ B&N and Amazon (available to Canadians but not in the UK as yet).
The news is full of it: escalating tensions from illegal immigration; headless bodies hanging off bridges and bounties placed on lawmen on both sides of the border. New Austin, Ohio, is a town grappling with waves of undocumented workers who exert tremendous pressure on schools, police and city services. In the midst of the turmoil, three very different kinds of cops scramble to maintain control and impose order.
But the rape-murder of a Mexican-American woman triggers a brutal chain of events that threatens to leave no survivors. El Gavilan is a novel of shifting alliances and whiplash switchbacks. Families are divided and careers and lives threatened. Friendships and ideals are tested and budding love affairs challenged. With its topical themes, shades-of-gray characters and dark canvas, El Gavilan is a novel for our charged times.
