This novel is a lot of fun with a lot of cool saints showing up. (Of course, I disagree with her about several, but that's half the fun.)The apparition in the Mission is the bomb, and el Diablo...he's a keeper.
I wish there were more about Diva, la FTM and a bit less on Shandra la gabacha culture-vulture. Again, that's me trying to impose my desires on somebody else's novel.
The cover art (both front and back) is true to life. The names are great fun. The curanderismo is pretty sensitive.
So buy it, order it through interlibrary loan, get it before it's gone!
