Abraxas’ cousin, Hugo, is murdered, and there are no obvious suspects or motives for the crime. Abraxas’ confidante, an ex-girlfriend named Vic, prods him to investigate Hugo’s murder.

So he must balance work and family with a murder investigation. Soon, Abraxas is dragged into a frenzied investigation that takes him from the mean streets to the corridors of power in City Hall to a tequila-fueled pool party that turns deadly. His story is full of violence, vulgarity, and stray jokes about Immanuel Kant....

    Humor is the secret sauce for this L.A. rompThis well-told tale of murder and family mayhem is fun to read, spiced with sharp Latino satire and commentary. I look forward to Abraxas Hernandez's next caper--and to interviewing the author for this week's Kindle Chronicles podcast.
