El Nino

(2014)
(The second book in the Border Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
Honey hasn't seen her mother, Marianne, in more than two years. She drives deep into the once-prosperous border region of the Oro Desert for a surprise visit, only to discover that Marianne has vanished.

Alone in an unforgiving environment populated with hostile locals, she meets Chavez, a young "coyote" or human trafficker, who convinces Honey he knows of her mother's whereabouts and agrees to take her there - for a price. As they make their way through the Oro's brutal no-man's-land they are tracked by Ocho, a teenage bounty hunter determined to recruit Chavez. And then there is Baez, Marianne's wizened Shepherd-coyote mix, whose death and life intimately intersect with Honey and Chavez's search for Marianne and who tells the story of the Oro Desert as it slowly comes apart.

Told from three distinct perspectives, El Nino is an intricately constructed and starkly written novel from a bold and inventive new writer.

    

"Stylistically brazen and wildly suspenseful, this novel charges and snaps, sinks its teeth in, and doesn’t let go." - Lisa Moore
