|| On one side of the border, a murder; on the other, a killer. In between stands Neil Hamel, a woman and lawyer with a passion for the truth. "Don't worry, Chiquita," was the Kid's answer to almost everything, and right now Neil Hamel missed the Kid—her part-time lover and car mechanic. Neil had gone to Mexico as a favor to a man she shouldn't be doing favors for, and what it got her was a face-to-face meeting with a corpse, a Mexican lawyer with a diamond pinky ring, and a throat slit from ear to ear. Returning home to Albuquerque, Neil couldn't let go of the tangled scheme she had uncovered. Looking for the truth, she finds human predators.
