An Amos Walker Novel

A sizzling Latina singer spells murder for Detroit's best P.I.

Who is Gilia Cristobal?

She's simply one of the hottest of hot Latina singers. Nothing in her life, however, is simple. In her native land she was involved with people the government didn't like, and she barely escaped with her life to start fresh in the United States. In her wake she left behind accusations about a former lover, about violence, and about blackmail. Now she's in Detroit to make music and wants Amos Walker to protect her from those who have threatened her life. She also wants him to investigate someone from the darkest chapter of her former life. When Walker realizes that Gilia's main man, recently out of prison, doesn't regret the time he nearly killed Walker, what first seemed like an easy payday starts looking more and more like a losing proposition. Latin heat, indeed.

Book Excerpts

The last line of security was a big Basque built like a coke oven. He wore a familiar face behind picador sideburns and a dozen-odd rivets in his eyebrows, nose, and the deep dimple above his lip. In another Detroit, under a different administration, he’d specialized in kneecapping Republicans. When the market went soft in ‘94, he’d scored work in show business, playing a succession of plumbers, janitors, and building superintendents in Spanish-language soap operas. I couldn’t approach him without glancing down at his chest for a subtitle.
