This is the first in a series of books by Ulmer, the complete cycle of epic proportions will follow the sacred and secular calendar through key times of the year. This book takes place in Taos, Los Alamos and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The author paints the scenes so perfectly of these towns you feel as if you are seeing them right in front of you. This is a mystery that takes you through Satanism, Witchcraft, and modern day science. Christina Garcia Y Grant, who had given up her law practice, decides to come out of retirement to help Hermandad, who has been set up for a murder.
The book has interesting some twists and turns in it. I had some problems following the story line because it is so rich in Latino tradition, which I know nothing of.
