“A thrilling series.” — National Public Radio
In the remote Coyuca Lagoon, where Hollywood’s iconic Rambo was filmed, Emilia and her partner stumble upon a grisly crime scene—a man sacrificed to Santa Muerte, Mexico’s forbidden saint of death.
Drug cartels are often associated with the worship of Santa Muerte and it’s clear that the killer meant to send a message of fear and intimidation.
But who was supposed to find this chilling message? The answer comes when a rival gang retaliates, leaving a trail of macabre crimes displayed on city billboards.
As Emilia investigates the murders, everyone close to her has a near-death experience.
Bad luck? Or has Emilia been cursed by the so-called Skeleton Saint?
