A human finger sold as a religious relic lures Acapulco’s first female police detective into a brutally dangerous arena of drug smuggling and corruption.
“A thrilling series.” — National Public Radio
Police detective Emilia Cruz is convinced she’s found a religious relic related to Padre Pro, a Catholic martyr in Mexico’s long-ago Cristero War. But it’s more likely to be the finger of a kidnap victim whose captors want to encourage someone to pay a hefty ransom.
At the same time, a dead body aboard a cruise ship is the first evidence of a new drug being smuggled into Acapulco. To Emilia’s surprise, the new drug is connected to a string of random murders across the city.
Hunting for answers, she’s saddled with a rookie whose agenda could get her killed.
